Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 23, April 6, 1880 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 23rd issue of the serial was published on April 6th, 1880, and its entertaining pages contain the continuing adventures of a young sailor moving up in the ranks, a Swiss toy story, instructions on crafting a sun dial and a model boat, animal shenanigans of all sorts, and many more tales and tidbits young readers will enjoy. 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/28777

  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.

Sounds good! The section has been assigned to you and you have been added to the catalog with your Facebook link as your website. You may also have a display name other than your forum name of rlgreenjr. Let us know if you'd like to add a display name and our MC David can do that for you. The link to your catalog page is https://librivox.org/reader/14753. This is a good place to see everything you've signed up for and everything you've completed. If you work on any projects in the future as a Dedicated Proof Listener (DPL), you will also find these assignments linked on your catalog page.

Thanks for your claim, I hope you enjoy your section!
Jill :)
