Greetings -

Chapters 13, 14, and 15 have reported in PL OK fashion as the MW now reflects. Thanks, 2839reader.

Is it my imagination or is this one of the more "criminal" books in the series? We have Little Cock Robin murdered, some boys lost in a schoolhouse fire, our heroes the victims of a highway robbery, and a kitten getting clobbered with a club by a dog. :shock: :shock:

Hello,

May I have sections 16 and 17 ("I'll Nevermore Be Bad" and "Mr. Frog"), please?

Thanks!

Eric
Greetings -

Sorry for the delay in getting to these. :(

Welcome to the wonderful world of LibriVox, Eric.

Both chapters 16 and 17 are now listed as PL OK in the Magic Window. Nicely read, especially the voice of Mr. Frog.

You're obviously a Cardinals fan. I won't hold that against you even though I have been a Cubs fan since the days of Ernie Banks. I will say, though, that I had the opportunity to see the great Bob Gibson pitch for the Cardinals against the Cubs. His "slow" fastball clocked-in in the low 90's mph.

Let's see more from you, Eric.

Thank you! Yeah, it was fun to read, especially the frog :) 🐸

It would be nice to see the Cubs play the Cardinals this season, if that's possible. It was good, though, I must admit, to see the Cubs finally break the curse and win the World Series in 2016. I saw Bob Gibson play maybe once or twice, no details, though. I do remember clearly, as though it happened recently, listening on the radio to Bob Gibson's retirement ceremony at Busch Stadium. It was in the afternoon and I had just gotten home from school. What a tough and great pitcher he was.

Looking forward to submitting more entries to Librivox!

Thank You Again!

Eric

Greetings -

Let's talk about Chapters 31, 32, 33, and 34.

kristinmic, welcome to LibriVox. I think it is too late to warn you that this fun adventure can quickly become an enjoyable habit.

All four of you chapters were well read and have been given the prestigious title of PL OK.

It sounded like you changed your settings a bit after the first two chapters. Maybe not, but the last two chapters seemed to have a better tone to them.

Do you notice that you start your recordings softer than when you get into the voices? Not a problem, I just happened to notice it myself.

Let's have more efforts from you in this series of books and I will see you over on the Pee-Wee Harris: Fixer thread.

I have finished Chapter 18 and it's been uploaded, ready for PL. It is 3:22 and here is the link: https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/pussinbootsjrtomthumb_18_cory_128kb.mp3

I hope I did it all correctly. Please let me know if I've missed something.
I'll move on to Chapters 19 and 20.
Thanks,
Diane
Ok, I have a question and am struggling with the upload. When I exported it as an MP3 file and then went back to open it, it shows up as a music file, not the audacity file. Is this correct? I'm thinking it should open as an audacity file for the PL to be able to edit? Am I doing it correctly?
Great! I've put this in the MW Ready for PL.
So, you've exported as .mp3 not as an Audacity file. I know my system uses little musical notes for .mp3 formatted files. I guess that's because it is commonly used for music, but is also a common audio file format. So, .mp3 files can be read in Audacity but also by many other programs, readers and players. So, all is well. :)
Greetings -

Not sure if this connected to this discussion or not, but I noticed when I brought up the playlist on Audacity, both Chapter 18 and 19 were titled Mrs. Mousey (and not The Serenade for Chapter 19). ???

BTW, why is the chapter entitled MRS. Mousey when the story makes it clear that she is MISS Mousey?

And, BTW, all three chapters are now shown as PL OK in the MW. Keep'em coming, Diane.

Yes, indeed, we did enjoy your fine use of voices. Definitely PL OK. Waiting to listen to your next offerings. Oh, yes, welcome to LibriVox.

How would you like to be listed in the LV catalog?
You can choose your real name, a pseudonym or any nickname you wish.
This is how you will be credited for all of your LV work.

Hello,
I would like to do section 27 if it's still up for grabs.

Thanks!
