Mount Royal Vol. I by Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835 - 1915).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on the catalog page.

https://librivox.org/mount-royal-vol-1-by-mary-elizabeth-braddon/
A classic Victorian sensation novel filled with romance, mystery, and murder with the emphasis on romance. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/mountroyalnovel01brad
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

It's unusual to set up 3 volumes at the same time- do you have a special reason (I do realise it makes using the template a bit easier)

Hi Anne,

Hmmm I intend to record all three and thought I just as well claim them all at the same time. I'm afraid I assumed it was OK to do so but please feel free to delete the other two for now if you wish. :)

I can claim them one at a time later on...no problem. I should add that it doesn't take me very long to complete projects. :) I do not want to do anything that is contrary to Librivox conventions however.
.

Thanks! Celine

A little unusual to post all three at once, perhaps, but no need to delete and repost. I can MC these for you, but can't set them up until later. I'll just add my name to the thread titles for now and do the database entries tonight.
