Mildred's Married Life by Martha Finley (1828 - 1909).

Mildred and Charlie Landreth begin married life together and enjoy many simple home pleasures. Together with Mildred's younger sister, they journey South to visit friends and relatives. (Amy)
    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/mildredsmarried00finlgoog/page/n7/mode/2up

      https://books.google.com/books/about/Mildred_s_Married_Life.html?id=K4QpAQAAMAAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button
    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

OK, your MW is ready for you! I didn't put a ~ in the subject line, do you have a DPL in mind? Or do we need to wait for one to come along?

Welcome to LibriVox!

You are welcome to have those chapters, but first, we ask that you would do a 1-Minute Test. This will help you get all your technical specs set up.

What name would you like your name to be listed as in the catalog?

Thanks!!
~Amy

Hi! I guess Michelle Morales is fine. Not sure. This is my first time. Do people usually use their full names or screen names?

Sounds good! People use whichever they prefer.

Please post your 1 Minute test in the forum Listeners & Editors Wanted. Someone will listen to it and will give you the 'go-ahead' when it all looks good.

Thanks!
~Amy
