Elsie's Motherhood by Martha Finley (1828 - 1909) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/elsies-motherhood-by-martha-finley/
After the Civil War, Elsie and her family return to their home in the South, dealing with the upheaval that the Reconstruction Era brought during the years after the war.(Summary by GabrielleC)
  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/14566
  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 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!

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

    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapter [number] of Elsie's Motherhood. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"

    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
    elsiesmotherhood_##_finley.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. elsiesmotherhood_01_finley.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: Martha Finley
    Album: Elsie's Motherhood

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

Thanks! This will bring back a lot of memories :) This was a favorite series of mine when I was about twelve, I have read books 1-12 at leat a dozen times. I still love it, but there are so many books out there that I hardly read the same book twice anymore :D

I think I'd like to follow this series, and at least do one chapter in each of the 20 or so books that are left. As I see that i am the first one to request a chapter, I guess starting from the beginning would make most sense. How about the Preface and chapter 1?
