K. by Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876 - 1958).

"K" is the initial of the mysterious lodger who rents a room from Sidney. Lies and intrigue surround Sidney. A film version of K., starring Virginia Valli and Percy Marmont, was released on 17 November 1924 by Universal Pictures as a "Universal Jewel" release, ( Beth Thomas and Wikipedia)
    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/9931
    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

Ohh...one of my favorite authors and not one that I've read yet. Can I DPL? I may claim a chapter later on, when I'm further along in catching up with my other projects.
I have had a lot of real life work the last few weeks. Please bear with me as I may take a little longer to PL or respond. I'll still get to everything as soon as possible. :D

Great! I'd love a DPL!

I posted in Book Suggestions a list of MRR books we have and don't have - I specifically chose this as one we don't have!
