Mine and Thine by Florence Earle Coates (1850 - 1927).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: http://librivox.org/mine-and-thine-by-florence-earle-coates/
This is a volume of poems by Florence Earle Coates. The poems in this volume describe the Zeitgeist perfectly - not only are they in style in many ways representative for American poetry around the turn of the last century, but moreover, many of the poems are discussing the current events of the time. This volume contains poems on the Cuban War of Independence, the coronation of Edward VII of England, and poems to several politically and culturally prominent persons of the time. ( 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.
      Please note that we handle a one month deadline for poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/minethinepoems01coat
    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!

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

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
      "[poem title], by Florence Earle Coates, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
      • Then read the poem.
      • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    8. At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Mine and Thine by Florence Earle Coates.
      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    9. 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
      mineandthine_##_coates_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. mineandthine_01_coates_128kb.mp3)
    10. Example ID3 V2 tags (just leave those blank!)

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

Hello, Carolin! Thank you for all the work you are doing! Because I created a new account after September 15th, I had to create a new account. I would again like my catalog name to be snbohm. Under the deleted user account, my one-minute test was given an ok, and I contributed two recordings to this project which were also given an ok.

I would like to reclaim the following sections:

#29 (At the Sarah-Bernhardt Theatre) https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/mineandthine_29_coates_128kb.mp3 (1:15)

#34 (My Dream) https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/mineandthine_34_coates_128kb.mp3 (1:18)

Thank you so much!
