The Law by Frédéric Bastiat (1801 - 1850).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-law-by-frederic-bastiat/
"The law perverted! The law—and, in its wake, all the collective forces of the nation. The law, I say, not only diverted from its proper direction, but made to pursue one entirely contrary! The law becomes the tool of every kind of avarice, instead of being its check! The law guilty of that very inequity which it was its mission to punish! Truly, this is a serious fact, if it exists, and one to which I feel bound to call the attention of my fellow-citizens." —Frédéric Bastiat
    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: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/44800

      Text with Section Word counts (please read from this text! Each section has a color.): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RjzFS1VUQUArZkNAXUOWg9kUJ9NlctC0
    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!

Awesome, Thanks. :) I need one more row (0-9), but I think I can add that myself, right?

Yes, you can. Sorry, I thought you wanted 9 sections total. Also, we try to limit the number of genres. Preferably no more than two. Is there one of the three you wouldn't mind taking off? You could always add it to the keywords. There's no limit on those.

Sure, that's fine. Take off the last (religion). I'll add it to the keywords. It's mostly the first two genres.

Great project, which I've been toying for a few years to do myself. May I have Section 1 for starters?

Please, I would like to be assigned sections 2 & 3.
Possible?

Yes to both of you. Great.

Michele, I did see you read a short story by him, although I haven't listened yet.

Section 1 is uploaded

I wish I could read French, for I think some of the charm is missing in the English translations.
