Junior Classics Vol. 2: Folk Tales & Myths by William Patten by William Patten (1866 - 1945).

Compilation of tales designed and arranged for young people. This volume covers tales from the North, the Rhine, Greece and Rome, tales from the Hudson River, and animal stories. [This will be updated prior to cataloging] ( DrPGould)
    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!): https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015083431588;view=1up;seq=1 DrPGould has posed links to each section of the text in the magic window for your convenience.
    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.

Hello everyone and Welcome to the Project!

I am unable to post word counts for this project, but I will post numbers of pages and links directly to the section of the text to be read.

This is a wonderful series of children's books and I hope that you enjoy your work here in this project. This should be fun!

Many thanks,

Philip

Larry:

Welcome to the project. Sections 41-43 are yours! Enjoy!

(I don't think I got a good division of the sections for Sleepy Hollow. If you want to change that, that would be fine--just let me know where the new division is when you post the sections.)

Many thanks,

Philip

Am I allowed to request chapter 2, or is it preferred that I complete a single section before claiming another? Also is there an easier way to read the text instead of the magic window? Thanks :)

Angie:

The only rule is that you don't take more sections than you can complete in 60 days. I'll put you in for Sections 10-13.

If you will right click your mouse on the "link to text" a menu should appear with an option to "open link in new window." Choose that and the text should appear in a separate tab in your browser. Alternatively, there is a link to the entire work in the first post on the board, but if you click that, you'll have to search for the particular page numbers for the section you are reading.

Hope this is helpful, and Welcome to the project!

Many thanks,

Philip
