Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf (1882 - 1941).

Mrs. Dalloway recounts a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway in the middle of June 1923. Clarissa Dalloway is a high society London lady. On that day, she is hosting a party, meeting people, going to the park, and reflecting on her choices. Where would she have been if she married Peter Walsh and not Richard Dalloway? What if she would not invite this or that person to her party? Her feelings about Peter Walsh grow because on that proticular day he returns from India to settle some affairs in London. Other people also reflect on their choices. Mr. Smith who cannot move on from the horers he saw in battle, his Italian born wife, members of Clarissa's family and friends. This book is considered a classic. It appears on many lists of best novels including the 100 best novels list by the Gardian. In deed, some of the theems ate timeless and tuch all of us.

For about a year I waited to start this book. So it is with great honor and love that I lonch this project. I divided the sections myself and wrote a detailed description of my division, with wordcounts.
You may wonder about my choice of text. Project Gutenberg Australia write that this version of the book was printed in 1925, so I hope it is in the public domain. It is very accessible. If not, there is an etext on archive.org. I like it less because as a blind woman I could not read It, but I would go along if this is a condition to start this book.

I'd love to be a part of this! I had considered trying to do it solo, but it was too much. I'm fairly new here; I assume I need to wait until the Magic Window's open to claim a section?

Hi Wendy, knowing you, I don't think it would be too much for you to take as a solo. You are dedicated, commited, and submit chapters on time. This would be a wonderful first solo. And I divided the sections so of course you can use my work or do it again it your pleasure. It is only 13 sections, and most of them are not long. I encarrage you to take this on. No problem on my part.
Stav.

Great. So how about we start with section 1?
And look, I am in Librivox for a long time now. It is my pleasure to encarrage new readers to take on soloes or more chapters in a group project and promote them. I want to help people feel confident around here, just as others helped me when I joined.

I'm sorry, Stav, but we can't trust this edition. "Project Gutenberg of Australia eBooks are created from printed editions which are in the public domain in Australia, unless a copyright notice is included. We do NOT keep any eBooks in compliance with a particular paper edition."

We'll need to wait until gutenberg.org releases an edition, or use a 1925 scan.

It doesn't show a printed/copyright year.

This one appears to be the same type layout but shows the copyright: https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.475974/page/n5/mode/2up

Oh, I see you found an acceptable scan? I was searching, but wasn't coming up with anything. If that is good to go, I would love to MC. :?:
