Legends of Saints & Sinners by Douglas Hyde (1860 - 1949).

Note to my future mc: this text is fully accessible to me. I might not need all the sections I requested, but I wanted to be on the safe side.
"I have called the present volume "Legends of Saints and Sinners," which to a certain extent it is; but I mean it for a book of Irish Christian folk-lore. My idea in compiling it has been to give for the first time a collection of genuine Irish folk-lore which might be called "Christian." By this I mean folk-stories and folk-poems which are either entirely founded upon Christian conceptions, or else are so far coloured by them, that they could never have been told—at least in their present shape—had not Christianity established itself in Ireland. Every one of these stories conforms fairly to this standard, except one or two, which I give as necessary corollaries. They are all translations from the Irish. I have found hardly any such stories in English. They were mostly collected by myself from the mouths of native speakers, but three or four of them I have taken from Irish MSS. in my own possession, and a few more were given me by my friends. Not one of these stories was ever translated into English before, with the exception of those which I have taken from my own "Religious Songs of Connacht." ( From The Introduction)
    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/45910
    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.

Hi Stav,
I'll MC this for you. Do you want it to be in Short Stories or Books?
Cheers!

Hay Amy, so glad to work with you on this one. Good questions. I think short stories, because it is a collection of short stories after all.

I didn't realize that Chapter 24 has a stanza of German. I will have to ask for help with that.

Hi everyone,

I would like to help Kevin and read the German sentences for him, if you agree. Could you be so kind and help me out with the following information:

What should the file name be?
Where can I upload it - can I use the normal LV uploader?
Who shall I choose as MC when I upload it?

Kind regards,

Boris

Thank you for the good intentions. But this is not a dramatic read. If Kevin has a problem with the jurman sentences he may exchange the section. It Is no shame. But only one reader reads a section. The practice of having someone read sentences from a different language is not popular around here. The reason is the listeners. They would find it odd to have two readers reading the same section, or two readers reading sentences in different languages. They would not enjoy the listening experience. So I cannot allow it. Again, thank you for the wonderful intentions.

Well, I will drop section 24. I will check on the others, also.
