Little Jack Rabbit and Chippy Chipmunk by David Cory (1872 - 1966).

David Cory is the author of over 50 children's book including the Little Jack Rabbit series and the Puss-in-Boots series. This is the fourth of the Little Jack Rabbit books. ( Larry Wilson)
    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/36053
    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


      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!

    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

      START of recording (Intro)
      • "Chapter [number] of Little Jack Rabbit and Chippy Chipmunk. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
      • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of Chapter [number]"
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of Little Jack Rabbit and Chippy Chipmunk, by David Cory. "

      There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      jackandchippy_##_cory_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. jackandchippy_01_cory_128kb.mp3)

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
      Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
      • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:

Section 1, please. This at a great risk, you know, as I think this might be addictive.

EDIT: Ooops, I thought the MW was set-up. Sorry to have jumped the gun!
E agora, José?

Thanks, David!

MW is set up.
I hope you don't mind, Kevin, but I like to take the first section in these, kinda of a tradition. But, there are 28 more chapters to choose from. :wink:

And a DPL would be most welcome! :help:

I would be happy to DPL or at least PL some. However I'm new to the whole thing, so if I should start somewhere else, just say so!

Well, I think this is as good a place as any to get started. :)

Please read the Guide to listening at this link: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=17680

Let me know if you have any questions.

And, I do like to have a DPL who will check the technical specifications.
You can use the Checker program to do this. Read the following: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker

In fact, you might like to read through the Newbie Guide to Recording, referenced in the initial post, just to get an idea of how this works.

My guess is that Kevin will have a chapter ready for you shortly to PL.

Sounds good! I've downloaded the checker and read the various pages... again!! :lol: ... and hope I'm ready. I may have questions later as I get into it. Thank you for your patience!

Sounds good to me!
I do a lot of DPL work, and it is fun to listen to the books, although not in order unless it is a slolo, and fascinating to hear all of the different voices, accents and reading styles.

So, Welcome to LibriVox! :clap:

David will put you in as DPL so you will have access to the Magic Window.
