Legends of Charlemagne by Thomas Bulfinch (1796 - 1867).

This study of Charlemagne is directed at the general literature reading public. Although the author tried to remain true to the legend and mythology surrounding the King of the Franks, renowned for uniting much of Europe, he points out that this is not a scholastic work for serious study, but rather to be read for enjoyment. ( Lynne Thompson)
    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/4927
    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.

Section 1

Bill,
The intro is listed as: "Chapter [number] of Legends of Charlemagne. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
You read as section 1. Since the introduction doesn’t contain a chapter number maybe introduction would be best. I’ll leave it to you and Lynne.

Other than that, this was a great reading and I enjoyed it very much. Well done! :D

I was just thinking I should learn more about the Charlemagne myths. Now I have a perfect excuse!

I will do sections 24, 25, and 26, please. What fun!
