ANDIRON TALES by John Bangs (1862 - 1922).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/andiron-tales-by-john-kendrick-bangs/
This book is a story about "Being the Remarkable Adventures of a Boy with a Lively Imagination"

( John Kendrick Bangs)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/24130/24130-h/24130-h.htm
  • 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!

Kristine,
I have completed chapter 1 & did just put it in the mw.
Now I am hoping it is seen by someone who is willing to be the dpl for this thread.
I realize that it is a small project with only 10 small chapters total ( I did put the wc in the mw yesterday, for my benefit ) & I will wait to record more chapters until a dpl has stepped in. :D

Hi! Nice to see first chapter up! :clap: I think there is no real need to wait for a DPL before recording next chapters. Someone will come along for sure and if not, we will advertise in Listeners Wanted. So I'd say go on with the recording.
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

What a cute little story this is going to be! I was listening to this with my 4 month old who loves to "talk" to people and he was just chatting away with you while you were playing over the speakers!



Chapter 1:
-1:05 there is a little blip on small; like the 's' is repeated.
Not a huge deal and if you decide to leave it as, is I will make this chapter OK as well :)


Chapter 2 is PL-OK!

I did remove the "s" repeat so not it should sound much better. Thank you for noticing that and for the pl okay for chapter 2.

I absolutely LOVE that your 4 month old was chatting with me. Yes, with that thought I have a silly grin on my face so thank you for that info.

Oh yes, one more small note for you. I do not intend to record my voice credit for each chapter. Only for the first and last.

Have a great day!
April
