For God And Gold by Julian Stafford Corbett (1854 - 1922).

Sir Julian Stafford Corbett was a prominent navy historian and geologist. This semi-autobiographical novel tells about the start: the personal and professional life of a scholar, the excitement of sailing, and joining the navy. - Summary by Stav Nisser.
    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/62184
    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.

hiiii
I was recording chapter 1 and I realised that there is no separate section for the preface so does that mean I have to record it too?
Also there's a blurb sorta thing just before the preface which I am not sure is to be recorded or not?
Thanks

Yes, please record the preface and what comes before that. If you feel this is longer than one section please let me know.

Hi!!
Here is Chapter 1 (21:13). I've recorded the preface so there is no need for a separate section, it wasn't too long.

Nice reading! :9:

Only, at 4:07 there is a stumble repeat on "he will find an interesting account of Signor".
I would suggest starting with "Preface and chapter 1 of [...]" in the intro, so that the listener immediately knows that the recording contains both.
