Ships That Pass in the Night by Beatrice Harraden (1864 - 1936).

This short novel by Beatrice Harraden, who was known for her work as a suffragist, was a bestseller in its time. In it, teacher and activist Bernardine Holme takes up residence at a tuberculosis sanatorium after falling ill. There she meets Robert Allitsen, known to sanatorium residents as “the Disagreeable Man.” As their friendship grows, the mutual influence of each character’s outlook on life and illness comes to have a lasting effect on the two.

    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/12476
    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: special: please follow along with the text to check for word changes that alter the meaning of the text.


      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!

DPL, please.

We have a former tuberculosis sanatorium in my city. (City is technically correct, but we still have corn and soybean fields!)

A BC can claim a section of their own project, right?

I'll sign you up, thank you! I've been pronouncing it in my head like "harridan," but I'll post in the pronunciation thread to double-check on that and report back.

This pronunciation is a good assumption. I think it would be wise to use it, but people will usually pronounce things as they wish. If you want me to comment on a particular pronunciation, please include guidance to readers in the project's instructions.

Come to think of it, the readers of the Harraden short story recordings that are in the catalog pronounce it "harridan," so that's what I'd go with.
