  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5665
  • 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!

    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

    • Say:
      "The Arabian Nights Entertainments Volume 02, by Anonymous. Translated by Dr. Jonathan Scott (1754 - 1829) [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Arabian Nights Entertainments Volume 02 by Anonymous. Translated by Dr. Jonathan Scott (1754 - 1829) This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Arabian Nights Entertainments Volume 02, by Anonymous. Translated by Dr. Jonathan Scott (1754 - 1829)"

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

Window done - I see you know that, it's filling up. I tweaked the file name to match volume 1 - it's not essential but nice if someone downloads both volumes I think

Thank you Anne! I have added another section, as when I looked more closely there was one more 'story'.

I will make a start . . .

These are very strange stories! And a lot more bloodthirsty than I was expecting. But it's good to see all this fabric in them!

Section 4 is uploaded:

Dur: 35:39

I am sensing a bit of a theme here!

There are quite a few errors in the translation or the printing. For example, 'strewn' instead of 'shown', and 'conduce' instead of 'conduct'. I have used my common sense, and only changed words so that the sentences make sense.

I agree with your corrections.
I have to say that I am already very tired of hearing about people having their parts chopped off. I hope something more entertaining comes along soon.

At least they still have all their parts this time! This is a long chapter, but the next one is considerably shorter . . .

Lovely and short - but more body parts missing, and I can see more of the same coming up!
