Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 21, March 23, 1880 by Various ( - )

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/harpers-young-people-vol-01-issue-21-by-various/


Harper's Young People, an illustrated weekly publication for children, includes serialized and one-off short stories, tales from history, poetry, puzzles, and other fun. This 21st issue of the serial, published on March 23, 1880, transports readers to steep mountain sides in Switzerland where wild chamois play, to a kingdom with a vengeful wolf searching for the tailor who wronged him, to a busy barnyard where a boy's creative thinking saves his friend, and to many more real and fantastical places. This periodical was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
  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/28417
    -
  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.

Thank you MaryAnn! The MW is now filled out and ready for claims.

Thanks for your claim, KevinS. The section with the Across the Ocean story also includes the story before it, "The Shortest Bamboo". Are you okay with reading both? Also, note the notes in the Notes section of the MW for section 02 and let me know if you have any questions.

Hello! Welcome to LibriVox!

Yes, of course you may read section 4 for the project! We're glad to have you.

It's a good idea to get your test OK-ed before recording for this project, however since you already have it posted it shouldn't take too long to get to that point in the process. If you haven't already seen it, the Newbie Guide to Recording is a page you should read through:
http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording

I have added you to the LibriVox catalog, you can see your catalog page at: https://librivox.org/reader/13912. You can also get to this by clicking on your name in the Magic Window (MW). This is a good place to look to keep track of recordings you've signed up for, to see section details click on the link to "Reader Section Details" which appears just a few lines down from your name. This page includes your forum name "kristineasay" and can also contain your real name or a pseudonym, plus a web site/blog if you have one you would like to link to. Let me know if you would like to add a name and/or a web site.

Again, welcome to LibriVox and enjoy!

Jill
