I will set this up.

Edit: Ready to go.
Do you have a DPL in mind? If not, you should add a tiled to the subject line.
I strongly recommend shortening the file name. veryshortstories or versesforchildren would be ideal.

Thank you for MC-ing this! I've fixed both of the issues, is it ok now?

I would love to claim the remaining chapters, please! Most of them are quite brief, and I look forward to practicing with this project because it is my first one! Please do let me know if this is alright, and thank you for your efforts on this!

Looks like you're new to Librivox, a pleasure to have you here! From what I know, it looks like you haven't done your one-minute test yet, which is something we require all Librivox newbies to do before they start claiming in a project. I don't wanna overwhelm you with a lot of sections, so maybe you can tell me five sections you would like to do, and then we can see from there.

Here is our Newbie Guide To Recording to help you get started.
