An Itinerant House, and Other Stories by Emma Frances Dawson (1851 - 1926).
This is a volume of short stories of supernatural fiction by American author Emma Frances Dawson. ( Carolin)
    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/anitineranthouse00dawsrich
    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.

      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!

      128 kbps MP3
      itineranthouse_##_dawson_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. itineranthouse_01_dawson_128kb.mp3)

Hi Carolin!

I'd like to take on chapters 1 and 2 if possible but after I posted this I looked at the pdf and it's missing all kinds of letters!
Is there a better text that you know of?
It's very odd, I can see everything fine reading on line but trying to read the pdf from my tablet is bad!

Thanks.

Hiya, i looked online and all seems to be there, and then i downloaded the pdf and it is totally fine on my system? Im on an android tablet myself. It might be that your pdf file was corrupted? Can you try again or otherwise read the online version? Thank you!

Now that is odd. I can read it from online and I found I can work with the plain text so I'm not without resource. Thanks very much for checking.

Great! Id discourage you from using only the plain text version as it is prone to errors. It is created based on a computers best guess as to what it says on the scan :) but if you consult both it and the scan youre perfectly fine :thumbs:
