Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 11, Jan. 13, 1880 by Various ( - ).


This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/harpers-young-people-vol-01-issue-11/
Harper's Young People, first published in 1879, was an illustrated weekly publication containing delightful serialized stories, short stories, fiction and nonfiction, anecdotes, jokes, artwork, craft projects, and more for children. This eleventh issue of the serial was published on January 13, 1880. Published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. To view illustrations from this issue, visit <a href="http://www.gutenberg.org/files/28304/28304-h/28304-h.htm>the free online issue on Project Gutenberg</a>.(Summary by Jill Engle)
  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/28304
  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: standard

    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!

    • Say:
      "Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 11, Jan. 13, 1880. [Section title]" (If the section you're reading contains more than one story, please read the story titles as you read each story.)

    END of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of Section [number]"
    • 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 Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 11, Jan. 13, 1880. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

  8. AFTER recording
    Need noise-cleaning?

Hello! I'm here, and ready for more DPLing!

BTW, I've just looked at how many issues of this are on Gutenburg. Let's just say that Jill's not going to running out of projects to host any time soon…

PL OK!

I'm still laughing at 'Michael Angelo'. It sure was nice of old Mr. Angelo to build that cathedral!
