The Book of Love by Paolo Mantegazza (1831 - 1910).


Translated from Italian, it delves into the physiology of love from a scientific standpoint, in beautiful writing. ( )
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/57423
  • 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!


    Magic Window:



    BC Admin ===========================================

    Genres for the project: *Non-fiction/Nature; *Non-fiction/Science/Life Sciences

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of The Book of Love by Paolo Mantegazza. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."

      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

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

Welcome first-time BC
This project is now set up in the database. Since this will be your first project as soloist/book coordinator(BC), you will need to set up a password for access to the workflow system so you can enter the information into the section compiler which then appears in the "Magic Window" in the top post. Here are some links to detailed instructions for logging into the system and setting a password the first time, as well as for entering and editing information in the section compiler.

First Time Logging in to the Workflow
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxWB83bbALTQYjlENGZ0SVJUWWs/edit

Instructions for BCs and DPLs
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ/edit

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.
BCs - How to Update the Magic Window
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/BC's:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window

ID3 tags will be added during cataloging so you don't need to add them to your files.

If you have any questions, let me know. Sections can be added by you or deleted by me. I started us with 22, one for the introduction and one for each chapter. I'll leave this thread here in the Launch Pad for a day or so longer before I move it to the Going Solo forum, to see if a DPL (Dedicated Prooflistener) volunteers. If you have someone in mind as dpl already let me know. Again, welcome to your first solo project.
Dave

I added a ~ before the book title in the subject line to let everyone know we are looking for a DPL. Start recording as soon as you are ready though. Once there are files in need of proofing it is more likely we will get someone interested in being the DPL. MW looks great!

0-1 PL OK.

Nice beginning. Starting with the second section you can chose to use the shorter intro. It's entirely your decision.
