Rilla of Ingleside by Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874 - 1942) .

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/rilla-of-ingleside-version-2-by-lucy-maud-montgomery/
Rilla of Ingleside (1921) is the final book in the Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, but was the sixth of the eight "Anne" novels she wrote. This book draws the focus back onto a single character, Anne and Gilbert's youngest daughter Bertha Marilla "Rilla" Blythe. It has a more serious tone, as it takes place during World War I and the three Blythe boys -- Jem, Walter, and Shirley -- along with Rilla's sweetheart Ken Ford, and playmates Jerry Meredith and Carl Meredith -- end up fighting in Europe with the Canadian Expeditionary Force. (Summary by Wikipedia)
  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 1-2 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!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3796
  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.

    Please don't download 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

    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of Rilla of Ingleside. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name]"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Rilla of Ingleside , by Lucy Maud Montgomery . "

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

    Also, 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 (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    rillaofingleside_##_montgomery.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. rillaofingleside_01_montgomery.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    Title: ## - [Section title]
    Artist: Lucy Maud Montgomery
    Album: Rilla of Ingleside

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

Ok Victoria,

So you're all set up for this project. If we have fast recorders, please know, I need to get my folder setup on the Uploader, but that should happen quickly. We'll hang out here a couple days or so to see if we get a DPL. It looks to me like you've BC-Ed before. If that's not the case, let me know and I can send you BC instructions.

If you can finish putting in the chapter titles in the Magic Window, that would help me when time comes to catalog this project. I've started you out with the 1st five. I'll pick out a chapter to read...

I look forward to working together with you on this project.

Mary

Unless you wanted to read chapter 1, I would love to read it. May I also request chapters 12 and 13, please?

Thanks

My mistake, Victoria...

I was in error to ask you for a target date. We used to have target dates for group and solo projects. It was kindly pointed out to me that a target date is no longer necessary for group projects. Thanks for your patience with me...

I would like to claim the last chapter, please. I might not submit for a few wks because I need to buy a new mic and still have to do my one minute test for LV.

Thanks!
Savannah :)
