Hello Maria --
Is Section 22, The Extraordinary American, still available? If so, I am a first-time reader and I'd like to tackle it. I'd like to be credited as Rhea Elsner.

Thanks in advance--
Rhea

Hi Maria --

I notice the column begins with "At the Sign of the World's End," but didn't notice that in the script. Would you like us to read that part as well at the top?

Thanks! :)

HI Rhea,

Yes, it is fine to read that ~ I don't have a strong preference either way. It is the title of the regular column. :-)

Thanks, Maria!
I did the test and they said I was good to go. Here's the chapter 14 link:

Hello. I'd like to try section 14 - On an American Critic.
Hi,

Welcome to LibriVox! Section 14 is all yours! Please read the first post of this thread carefully.

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 web site/blog.

Also, since this is your first recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.
