More About Unknown London by Walter George Bell ( - 0).


All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/more-about-unknown-london-by-walter-george-bell/
If you enjoyed Unknown London by this author, then you should love this one! Bell's light and novel exploration of specific topics in London's history make this easy to listen to and factual. Seventeen new topics are examined in this book, including Anne Boleyn's letter, tombstone stories, and St. Martin-Le-Grand. ( Janet)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://openlibrary.org/works/OL162501W/More_about_unknown_London
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

Hi Janet.
I can MC this for you.
Will be back in a few minutes with the MW.
Lynne

Edit:
All set. I've added the tilde to attract a proof listener and added the _128kb_ to the file name.
The i/d tags are optional and if you decide not to use them, please edit them out of the first post.
Have fun with this.

Oops- I have 18 sections total- not 18 chapters, so one needs to be removed from the magic window. :oops:

I filled in the section titles so it should be obvious.
