I would like to read sections 53 and 69 ("When the Frost is on the Punkin" and "Jack-O-Lantern" poem).

Hi Nan,

Looks like you have chosen a very popular project! I've added Terry as DPL and moved the thread out of the Launch Pad. Also since the claims were coming in fast and furious today, while I was in the database, I lent a hand updating the MW with all the new claims. I hope you don't mind. Please double check that I didn't miss (or misassign) any!

here's another beautiful story. I must admit I had to repress some choking sobs while reading some parts. But it's a beautiful moral at the end of the story. :9:

Section 2 is done and passed through Checker.

A beautiful reading and a lovely story, Sonia.

There is 1 issue.

10:04 has a missing word. ...cruel scepter... should be cruel ice scepter...

:shock: how could I forget the ice scepter ! Quite an important tool for the Winter King.

I re-recorded this entire sentence "My giant warriors conquered or Poon with his cruel ice scepter would have reigned king over all." (from 10:00-10:08), for Spot PL.

Thanks, Sonia. Good to "see" you again.

Section 2 is now PL OK. Thanks for the quick turnaround.

Thought I would get just one little poem in to see how it goes with the short disclaimer.

Jo, I don't mind at all -- I am VERY grateful. I didn't expect so much response. AND it's my birthday, :birthday: and I'm just getting to LibriVox now. I added the ones who claimed after you did all of the adding.

[ Do you want me to read this sentence under the title as well ? "Translated by special permission from Guerber’s Contes et Legendes, Ière Partie. Copyright by American Book Company."

Sonia, I would say it's not necessary. Those of you with more experience please feel free to "put in your oar" on this.

well I already recorded the piece and I added the first bit, I think it's interesting to know where the story is taken from. But I left out the copyright bit, that was really unnecessary. :)

btw I already uploaded the section, you forgot to put it in the MW. I also made another claim (Section 37) which you overlooked, here: viewtopic.php?p=1502414#p1502414

Thanks
Sonia

Terry, I just noticed, you forgot to mark my first submission as PL ok in the MW.

May I next claim Section 60. The Little Pumpkin, please ?
