  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.210309
  • 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 re-instated).
    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!

Let me know if any changes are needed. I was wondering whether you might want to use (beginning with Ch. 2) a shorter book title (e.g. A History of Our Times, Vol. 2).

Hi aniroo,

Section 01 is up:

35:41

https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/historyofourowntimesvol2_01_mccarthy_128kb.mp3

Except for annual parliaments all of Chartism's 6 points were eventually enacted: universal manhood suffrage, equal electoral districts, abolition of the requirement that Members of Parliament be property owners, payment for M.P.s, and the secret ballot.

Again, thank you for agreeing to help with this project!

Section 1 V.2. PL OK (of course :D ) :thumbs: :thumbs: :clap:

Good way to end St. Paddy's Day, reading about Young Irelanders.

I was laughing out loud to hear the names of the people on the petition, the fictional characters and the celebrities. :lol:

Thanks,

Yes, it was fitting.
Those poor Chartists. I have always felt sorry for them.
