I'm having so much fun reading these! LMM had such a fun voice in her writing. I'll have my second assignment uploaded in the next couple of days.

I'd like to also claim 86-89 (Hill O' the Winds, parts 1-4), to try my hand at a bigger project, if that's possible.

Thank you! Great job on getting the volume up.
There is one issue at 5:44 you repeated most of the last paragraph and forgot to cut one of the versions out. :-)

Starting to read the novella Hill O' the Winds and I am realizing that LMM had a seriously wicked sense of humor.... :twisted:

One of the main characters (so far) is named Cousin Clorinda, and it's always surrounded by other c-, cl- and cr- words, and it's going to kill me:

"...said Cousin Clorinda complacently."
"I must have plenty of cream, Cousin Clorinda."
"...continued Cousin Clorinda."
"...said Cousin Clorinda, compelled to believe him."

Nothing like being on a roll, and then completely tripped up by a tongue twister you didn't see coming!

:shock:

Hi Jamie,

Welcome to LibriVox! Section 22 is all yours! Please read the first post of this thread carefully.

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 web site/blog.

Also, since this is your first recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.

Thanks and have fun!
