The National Geographic Magazine Vol. 08 - April 1897.

This project is complete and all audio files can be found in the catalogue: https://librivox.org/the-national-geographic-magazine-vol-08-04-april-1897-by-national-geographic-society/

All previous issues that have been catalogued! :: http://librivox.org/group/438
The National Geographic Magazine, an illustrated monthly, the April Number.
It includes the following articles:
  • A Summer Voyage to the Arctic, by G. R. Putnam
  • The Area and Drainage Basin of Lake Superior, by Mark W. Harrington
  • The Siberian Transcontinental Railroad, by Gen. A. W. Greely
  • Geographic Literature and Serials
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/nationalgeograph81897nati (also linked pages in the MW)
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Previous projects show that 10 pages give a recording of about 25-35 minutes.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard
      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Section [number] of The National Geographic Magazine, Vol. 08, April 1897. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of The National Geographic Magazine, Vol. 08, April 1897."

      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      ngm08_04_##_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. ngm08_04_01_128kb.mp3)
    9. Example ID3 V2 tags
      (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
      For this project, you may leave ID3 tags blank as they will be filled in automatically at cataloguing.
    10. Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
      • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:

Thank you, Betty! :9:
Following your advice, I'll wait until I have some coffee. I rarely drink coffee, so it might take a while :lol:

In section 4 there's an edit needed. There's a repetition 07:36-08:03 "thus this part of the work ..."
Section 5 is PL OK!

Now I don't know what you meant about staying awake; I found the subject interesting, or maybe your way of reading kept me interested, or actually a combination of those :D Thank you!

[Love it when I get to read a geography section which does NOT contain the word isthmus! I'll take any number of first nations words before isthmus!]
