Flop Ear, the Funny Rabbit by Richard Barnum ( - ).

"Once upon a time, not so very many years ago, a family of rabbits lived in the woods near the top of a mountain. There were six in the family, counting Flop Ear, the funny rabbit, and I speak of him first because this story is going to be mostly about him and his adventures, or what happened to Flop Ear." Another hippity-hoppty tale about an adventurous little rabbit whose left ear just would not stand up straight. ( Phil Chenevert)
    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/61688
    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

Welcome whitedo19 to this project and to LibriVox. I will assign t hat section to you but before you record it, please complete your little 1 minute test to check out your technical specs. Instruct ions are in your welcome email and in our wiki. Once you do that and get the official OK, then record that section. If you have any questions at all just ask! Here is a video to get you started. :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlaRY_-bcfs

EDIT: your forum name is whitedo19, I will make your catalog name Dominique, is that right?

Hi Beth and welcome to his hippity hoppy project. I am assigning that sect ion to you but please wait for your 1 minute test OK to record it. I notice that Jo is working with you and that you seem to have a good grasp of recording already so it will be a snap for you. Our LV bannana is glad to see your here. Image
EDIT: How would you like to be credited in our catalog? What name? A lot of us use our real names but it is up to you, you can use your forum name 'JBConnor' or whathever.
