On Everything by Hilaire Belloc (1870 - 1953).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/on-everything-by-hilaire-belloc/

Volunteers outside the USA: Hilaire Belloc died in 1953. His/Her work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years.
Hillaire Belloc of French by birth, British by naturalization was a diverse and prolific writer of the early 20th century. His writing runs the range from poetry, political writings and children’s stories. He was a close friend, and sometimes collaborator with fellow Catholic G.K. Chesterton

This book is a collection of essays and other short writings on a vast array of subjects ranging from observations on the barber, the duel, reflections on war and religion. Some are in the form of drama, dialogue and letters but always engaging with wit and satire.
( Larry Wilson)
    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.

We've recently completed a volume of Belloc's poetry, and here we have a collection of essays and short writings. There will be several sections that I will set up as dialogues or short DR. I think the effect will be quite enjoyable.

Thank you, Tricia!

I have three chapters that I want to do as liitle DR's, each with two or three parts, so I set up the parts at the end of the MW. If you think there is a better way to set this up, let me know.

I think maybe I should prepare coded docs for those sections to make it easier for readers.
And, I'll give instructions on reading the intros and outros for those pieces.

Other than that -- We are ready for readers, and a DPL would be most welcome,

Hmmm. I'm not sure where you posted your 1-minute test, but it sounds perfect - great recording voice and expressively read, all specs on target.
Just remember in your recordings - no more than one second of silence at the begining, and about 5 seconds of silence at the end.

You are free to go ahead and start recording these, but I do need to know how you want to be listed in the LibriVox catalog. Many of us just use our real names since this is how we are credited for our work, but you many chose a pseudonym or nickname if you wish.

Just let me know, then I can officially assign these sections to you and enter you into the Magic Window.

WELCOME TO LIBRIVOX! :clap:

I would like to volunteer to do section 5, "The Long March."

This would be my first contribution and I would like to be credited as EA Kahn, no links (for now).
