Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 by Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850).

This project can now be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/summer-on-the-lakes-in-1843-by-margaret-fuller/
Margaret Fuller, the American early proponent for women's rights, writes of her visits to the Great Lakes in the summer of 1843. (KevinS)
    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/summeronlakesin100fullrich/page/n9
    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!

I submitted the incorrect URL for the book at my first go. I believe it is correct now.

Hello -

I am very interested in reading and recording for this. I looked at the next chapter that is open, Chapter II, and am curious if you plan to assign parts to the "scene", or if you really just want one reader to handle it. I'd love to participate, either way.

I thought that folks might like to keep everything simple, but if you are game---and Phil doesn't mind---I'd love to do the scene.

I wouldn't mind doing the editing and we would just need another voice---a female, I think, though perhaps it doesn't matter.

I'll keep my eye on this thread to see what you decide. Any way it goes, please count me in!
