The Book of Jubilees by Robert Charles (1885 - 1931).


The Book of Jubilees, sometimes called Lesser Genesis (Leptogenesis), is an ancient Jewish religious work of 50 chapters, considered canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church as well as Beta Israel (Ethiopian Jews), where it is known as the Book of Division (Ge'ez: መጽሃፈ ኩፋሌ Mets'hafe Kufale). Jubilees is considered one of the pseudepigrapha by Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox Churches.[1] It is also not considered canonical within Judaism outside of the Beta Israel. ( Wikipedia)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/CHARLESBookOfJubilees
  • 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 reinstated).
    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!

You need a proper heading - look at the other projects in the launch pad. You can edit by clicking the pencil icon top right hand side All that shows at present is So - which hardly helps anyone find it

Oh. Uhh. I apologize. It looks like I may have created two launchpad pages. So here is the one we have talked on. And here is the other one.

viewtopic.php?f=28&t=73833

Please feel free to delete one, or whatever you need to do. Sorry. Really don't know how I did that. I thought the first time i didn't finish the process right, but apparently I still created a thread.

Again. Sorry. Please forgive the noob.

OK I'll set it up

Am I correct - you do not want to read the preface or introduction so you will be starting page 99 ? of the volume (which then starts renumbering at one?

Are you planning to read the footnotes?

Correct. I am interested in the texts, but not so much the intro/preface. It's super long and partially in German. So thank you, but no thank you.

Along with that I plan on skipping the footnotes so the text flows better. On paper footnotes are great, but I've listened to audiobooks with footnotes before, and it can be a little confusing.

Next thing to learn is how to maintain your MW - it's a lot in 1 step I know, that's why we encourage people to start in a group project where it is someone else's job, but here goes

Now that you are a soloist, you will be your own BC (book coordinator). That means that you will enter the links to your recordings into the Magic Window (MW) (the scrolling window in the first post). Here is a document that explains how to get into the MW the first time:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxWB83bbALTQYjlENGZ0SVJUWWs

And here is another document that explains how to keep the MW up to date etc:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ

You will notice I entered section titles for the first couple just to explain where things go. You need to fill them all in before you record so I can check that the reading matches and you don't have to change things already read - you can change them if you have another idea

Awesome. I started reading the info and hopefully I can be ready to start recording in the next day or two. I've been playing with my editing equipment as well. Please check my latest level test and hopefully we will have this under control soon.

Negative on the MW. Like I said, I started to read the info, but time got away from me.

How are my audio levels on the test I sent you?

Okay. Started the MW stuff. When I click on BC under the window it says I don't have access.

Could you try again? It takes a while for things to all work sometimes.
We don't have a dpl yet so there is no one to listen to the sound yet. Let's get the project all set up.

Ha ha! BC access is good now. Looks like a big spreadsheet. This should be easy enough. I still have to read the how to sheet in full, but it seems good for a start.

Should I post my volume test to the listeners wanted section instead, or should I leave it as is?

You were given an OK , but if you want to check again , yes
Do you get wave forms with any of your approaches ? Before we had any other way we would base it on that. Audacity has a scale of -_1 to -1 , as long as the +side averaged round the .5 mark and didn't hit the 1 it was OK and you can watch this while recording.
I don't have a problem if it's a little loud as long as there is no clipping especially with a Solo
