Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know by Various, Edited by Hamilton Wright Mabie (1846–1916).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/fairy-tales-every-child-should-know-by-hamilton-wright-mabie/
Summary text (Summary by xxxx)

  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’d 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 month of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). 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 one month, 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.
    The target completion date for this project is 22nd December 2011.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14916
  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

I'd like to read the Ugly Duckling please. I think it will be Section 23 (it is Chapter 22 but if the Introduction is Section 1, then it will be Section 23).

Hi Elizabby,
Thanks, I'll sign you up for Chapter 22: The Ugly Duckling (section 22, the Introduction will be section 00), as soon as an admin decides to MC this project and the MW is set up. :D

MW is up! :D

I've added a couple more section to the MW than requested, as some of the stories are fairly long and it would be good to split them (as no recording should be longer than 60-70 mins). The Light Princess alone has almost 15.000 words which would be 5 good sized sections.

Also the Introduction is long enough to go into a seperate section.

Edit: I've alse made a few small changes about the intro...

Only the dark, dark night shows to my eyes the stars;
After the clangor of organ majestic, or chorus, or perfect band,
Silent, athwart my soul, moves the symphony true."

Welcome to LibriVox!
Thanks, I've signed you up for Chapter 16: The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood. :D
Have you already posted your 1-minute test recording in Listeners Wanted? It's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are OK.
If you have not, please go to this wiki page to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.
