The Junior Classics — Volume 6: Old-Fashioned Tales by Various.
This collection of The Junior Classics is compiled from many wonderful authors including Alcott, Dickens, Hawthorne, and Carroll. The stories are suitable for all ages and as with the rest of the series include the teaching of morals.
    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/6577
    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 see "New to Recording" above.

Hi Linny,
I look forward to reading for this volume :D

Just a note, I believe the Gilbert Patten you linked to on WP isn't the same William Patten--the birth/death years of the author (according to PG) don't line up.
Foon - Please correct my pronunciation!

Readers needed:
Arabian Nights (Vol. 10)

PL needed:
Swanhilde (section 8)

I agree with Foon. We have the wrong wiki page linked to this William Patten. I've corrected this, but I'm thinking we should probably list this as Various, since Patten didn't actually write the stories. He is credited as having "Selected and Arranged" them. If I keep Patten and add Various, it will show on the catalog page as by Various and William Patten like on this page https://librivox.org/international-short-stories-volume-1-american-stories-by-william-patten/. What do you think, Linny?

Thank you, Jo! :clap:

Due to word counts, I had to add 2 sections. I can add them to the MW. I only mention it because I'm not sure if it's a database field.

Jo,
I think it should be various. I was wondering why it was Patten but I saw the rest in the series were that way so I just kept it going.

I'll do a little magic behind the scenes and make them all consistent. :?

I'm sorry, Jo. I'm beginning to think it might be me. I do seem to have those types of projects which cause behind the scenes craziness. :roll:

Thank you for getting us started. I've combined the Alice in Wonderland intro with Down the Rabbit-Hole. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Well, this is exciting. It's been years since I launched a project with such a warm reception.

Hi there!
May I claim sections 15&16: A Lost Wand pt.1&2?
I am familiar with this story and I would be very honored to read this story if I can~ 😊
I just joined recently and still trying to get my one-minute test evaluated. Please take some time to listen and give me critique on recording quality: https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/test_yanyann.mp3

Hello Yanyann,
I left comments in your listeners wanted thread. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=72457&p=1523563#p1523563

You might find that after recording you need Audacity for editing. I'm not sure what editing features the ipod touch and your converter have for you. We all need to edit our readings. It generally takes much longer to edit than it does to read. Let me know if I can be of help.

Here is your catalog page: https://librivox.org/reader/12908
The Reader section details link is a great way to keep track of your readings when you are working on multiple projects.
