Rubble and Roseleaves, and Things of That Kind by Frank W. Boreham (1871 - 1959).

Volunteers outside the USA: F.W. Boreham died in 1959. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, or Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954).
Frank Boreham was a well known preacher who served in England, Australia, and New Zealand. He published dozens of books and thousands of editorials during his lifetime, with no sign of slowing down, even up until his death at age 88. He wrote with a distinctive style, seeming to be able to draw a spiritual lesson out of any conceivable topic.<br><br>In this volume, Boreham characterizes these chapters as neither sermons nor essays, but simply, as he calls them, "outbursts" or "wayward notions," and he presents them to us as if we were all gathered around a comfortable fire together. ( Devorah Allen)
    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/59180
    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.

Yaay! Another Boreham book!
I'll be back to do something with this, for sure.
Maybe DPL?

Wow, guys, look! A friend of mine just posted a review for this very book on his blog, this very morning! I promise, we didn't plan that! https://wp.me/p7g1R6-DG

Also, for those who still want more Boreham, never fear! I did some digging yesterday and found six or seven more on Archive, so we'll have plenty to keep us busy. :D

How cool is that! :D :D

I figured Archive might have more of his writing, so that's good news, too. :D

This is set up.

This is PD in Canada, so I took the Canada part out of the "not PD" message. :)

Ah, what a collection!

Normally I don't put in request for sections until the MW is set up, but if you'll forgive me, I'd like to read one from each part, and they would be
A Good Wife and a Gallant Ship, Chimes, and A Box of Blocks. (I'm sure Kevin will show up, and he'll PL these for me). I'm looking forward to listening to the rest. :D

:lol: Sure thing, Larry! Yes, this looks to be another good one! I will be happy to PL your sections, whether Kevin makes his appearance or not. (But I'm betting you're right, and he'll be along in a little while!)

I'll start filling this in now. I'll soon be starting a job which will require me to actually get up in the mornings (haven't had to do that in awhile!), but I don't start till the day after tomorrow, so I can afford to stay up late this one last time, right? :roll:
