Hi again,

I see that "E" is open, so I was wondering if, just to close the Collection off, I could have "E"?

It would be "The Enchanted Types" from American Fairy Tales By L. FRANK BAUM.

Thanks

Wayne

OOPS!!! :oops:

I just noticed the note about the limit of 2 letters. I will save this one for a future use.

I think it's fine to omit the Latin in this case. It doesn't seem to be properly "part" of the text, but some sort of introductory.

And yes, thank you for respecting the two-section limit. :)

I just noticed that there are two authors listed for the book where you found Gouverneur Morris. :hmm: Metadata only accepts one, so I guess we'll use Lodge, since he's the first author listed.

That works, I guess. You have to be into history or be old to know Henry Cabot Lodge, but most have heard of Theodore Roosevelt.

I used number "3" for the Children's Collection, so all is well.

Absolutely! Do you have a text picked out already? We need to make sure it's something clearly in the public domain. If you're unsure, I can help you figure it out.

I see that you've already recorded your 1-minute test. I'll go take a look at it! :D

Here is something for letter "Z."
It is different from what I mentioned in my claim. I did record that, but the story is longer than I realized, and the raw recording came out to over an hour. Although I'm sure it will edit down to under an hour, I thought it too long for this collection and I'll find another home for it.

I didn't see instruction for an end of book disclaimer, but I can easily add one. Just let me know.

Thanks, Larry. There isn't a length restriction on this collection, and I certainly would have taken it. But I'm confident you will find it a nice home. This one is in the MW.

Your reading is PLOK :thumbs:
