The Boy Scouts on Sturgeon Island by Herbert Carter (1854 - 1938).

To come! ( )
    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://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/8067
    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!

    • "Chapter [number] of The Boy Scouts on Sturgeon Island. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

  • AFTER recording
    Need noise-cleaning?

Hi! If it is still available, I would love to read Section 5: The Rescue. In addition, this is my first recording and in the LibriVox catalogue I would like to be credited as Zeta.

Hi Zeta! Welcome to LibriVox! I have you down for section 5, thank you! But, please, before you record your section, could you do the one minute test? It is not an audition, but a way for us to make sure that your technical settings are where we need them to be. It is much easier to fix those things before you record, rather than having to do some of them after recording. This guide here, just in case you have not received your welcome email yet, will tell you how to do it, and where to post it.

Chapter 17 is yours, thank you! But, please make sure you do your one minute test first. It is just our way to make sure your settings are where we need them to be before you record your sections. Once you get that OK, then you will be free to record. What name would you like credited on your catalog page?

Hello. I'd like to give Chapter 7 a go if that's alright? I'm new but have already passed my 1 minute test and would like to be credited as Prattlepig. Thanks!
