Clover by Susan Coolidge (1835 - 1905).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/clover-version-2-by-susan-coolidge/
This fourth book in the "What Katy Did" series focuses on Katy's closest sister, Clover. She ends up in the beautiful mountains of Colorado to nurse their younger brother back to health. While making new friends, Clover is reunited with her city-cousin turned rancher, Clarence Page, and introduced to his English friend, Geoff Templestowe. But can any new ties ever rival those of her beloved family? ( HannahMary)
  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.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/15798
  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 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!

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Clover, by Susan Coolidge. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
  8. AFTER recording
    Need noise-cleaning?

Okay, the MW is filled! Should I clean out the temporary paragraph below it, David? And may I remove the section about ID3 tags to make it less confusing for new-comers?

I usually clean up the Opening Post while I catalog, but go ahead if you wish. I put this bit in the weekly poetry..
