This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-bookman-march-1921-by-john-farrar/

Farrar founded two publishing companies — Farrar & Rinehart and Farrar, Straus and Giroux. ( Matt Pierard)
    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!): https://archive.org/details/bookman00unkngoog
    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.

I actually cut and pasted another project's info into this form. I've tried to do group projects before with links to Internet Archive that were rejected because they weren't on Project Gutenberg.

Found the template and have re-upped the project.

Cool, craigdavid, please do.

Great! I'm not worried about the ones you did not find. At least the due diligence has been done as much as possible.
