Hello, I'm new to Librivox, and
I would like to read the Life of Alexander by Plutarch.
I see that the first section is claimed, though I would like to read them all for continuity sake.
If dpbrown hasn't recorded yet, perhaps he/she would be willing to let me begin from first section?
Hello, Jamin, and welcome to Librivox!
As a first-time reader with us, I would like to point out we have a very useful guide, that can be found here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Newbie_Guide_to_Recording
In it, you will find the information about the 1-minute test, that we strongly suggest all readers take before starting a section. Also, as explained in the first post, I need to know under what name/pseudonym you would like to be listed in the catalog.
However, I also need to tell you it is not our practice to suggest someone else relinquish a claim. We work with first come first serve, so, if someone else claimed the section before you, it is theirs to read. Actually, in his post above, dpbrown said he would like to read the whole of Alexander's life as well, but since he is a new reader, he decided to claim just one section to start, to which I agreed as advisable. So, he claimed just one section, and I suggest the same for you, that you try one section before diving into more.
