Aww...too bad this is the only one but thank you (possibly) keeping at least one atheist project running at time.

I hereby volunteer to take the next orphan that you have BUT if you don't want me to "pre-claim" - no worries. I'll do my best to check in with Librivox daily and snag it on my own :D ... if I don't, well, there are so many things worthy of reading, aren't there?

I have uploaded section 20 and orphaned 5 other sections whose claimants didn't return since September.

I hope there's something for you, Jennifer :wink:

It may be a bit tight for brand new claimers in this project, but I'd love to bring this into the catalog this year if possible.
Thanks for your help! :D
Cheers, Ava.

Super! I will claim section 6 and after I have recorded it, claim another if there are still some available!

Great! I waited for you to take you pick, but now we'll be moving over to "Readers Wanted" for a while. :D

4 sections assigned, thank you all!

As I said, it would be really cool if we could finish this project this year, so a turnaround within a month would be just perfect.

Thank you! :D

(13.40)

Weezer, I'm afraid that I asked for it before you posted, so I went for it.

Now, that was a fast turnaround!
Thank you Peter! :thumbs:

With that speed, I'll better start looking for a successor for this project. :lol:

I have a Kindle edition of George Foote, which I'm gradually working my way through. It's called "George Foote: six works collection: Arrows of Freethought; Bible Romances; Flowers of Freethought (1&2); Prisoner for Blasphemy; Reminiscences of Charles Bradlaugh"

If we can find the texts online, we still have lots of his work to read!

BTW, I hope I pronounced Mr Bradlaugh's name right in my recording, as he has a whole book devoted to him. I guessed at "Bradley".

All of Foote's books you mention are on gutenberg (plus a few more) and we already have the "Prisoner for Blasphemy" in our catalog.

I was thinking of perhaps introducing our LibriVoxers to another freethinker/atheist. Now that I've looked through gutenberg, there is so much to read, and many of the projects there are pretty short.
I'm wondering if I should trouble myself making a "list of books on atheism / by freethinkers" in our book suggestions forum to inspire others to read stuff as well. :hmm:
Cheers, Ava.

Hi, I have read section 45, 9m06s.

Still very new to this so I hope it is ok. :D

Lovely reading Adam! Thank you!
Sorry it took me so long.

Only 2 notes to smooth things out:

>00:19, the recording doesn't quite match the wording of the Intro. I hear "second edition" and the intro goes "second series". Please correct this so we can have a consistency of the recordings.
>00:27, the note marked with *, should be read right after the title. Please record it, and add it here.


Cheers,
Ana :mrgreen:
