The Big Push. I stole expression that from World War One.

I just counted, rather informally but not wildly, the number of unclaimed sections in about half the projects in our Reader's Wanted thread. I went backwards and left off about halfway up the list.

We have about 326 sections unassigned. Some of that is made up from books that don't look very popular. I don't know if those should be seen as needing help as much as their being reconsidered for another time.

If we ignore, for the moment, the projects with more than 27 unclaimed sections, we still come up with 187 unclaimed sections. One of the oldest projects, in terms of having last had a comment, has only 2 sections left before being completed.

SO... if one has time and inclination, please have a look at some of these projects and contribute a section or two if one can.

Maybe the second person will work best here. If YOU have time and inclination... (That's the second person, right? I will have to look at the One Thousand Questions and Answers about English Grammar project!)
Drop and roll!

On the other hand, the oldest-commented thread in Readers Wanted: Books that you mention, the last post was less than 2 months ago. So the project hasn't really stalled. :)

Some readers do look at the oldest projects, or the ones with just a couple sections to claim, and try to help them get completed. This is the type of thing we look at when doing clean up months, too.

The status table will help people find projects with just a couple sections left to claim. It's here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Project_Status_Table#Section_Status_Table

No, not necessarily stalled, but I'm sure help will always be appreciated.

Thanks very much for the link! This will help!
