Pee-Wee Harris in Luck by Percy Keese Fitzhugh (1876 - 1950).

Another episode in the life of the loveable Pee-Wee Harris, Boy Scout and Boy of Superior Appetite, who always lands on his feet. ( )
    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/59247
    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

Would you permit me to record 1 - 6? If that's not to your liking, I could do 1-3.

Greetings -

Let's see...I am finishing one book today and two other books down to one chapter, so I have room for another Pee Wee Harris book if you need a DPL.

I would love to claim: 14 Forward, March! and 15 Handling the Crowd. As this is my first time, the name displayed would like to be Tyra M.

Thanks, Tyra

Welcome to Librivox, Tyra.
I will add you to the catalog and assign those sections. Please be sure to read the first post. It has all the information you need, but do ask if you have questions. I think you will find this a fun first project!
