Over Here and Over There by Harry Zody (1894 - 0).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/over-here-and-over-there-by-harry-zody/


In publishing this book I have no intention whatsoever to offer a work of great literary value. As such it would undoubtedly be a failure, because, being of a non-English-speaking race, and only having been in this country a comparatively short time before going over to France, I cannot claim a mastery of the English language. It has merely been my intention to express the spirit which led me to America and thence with Pershing's Expeditionary Forces to France. (From Introductory) ( )
  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/cu31924021733914
    .
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard
    .
    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    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!

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of Over Here and Over There. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "Over Here and Over There, by Harry Zody. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of Over Here and Over There by Harry Zody. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Over Here and Over There, by Harry Zody. "

    There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.
    .
  4. Example filename overhere_##_zody_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number
    .
  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)

Thanks Kevin. We have a heat action day tomorrow, and so I am camped in my cool basement for the weekend. It will be done tomorrow.

Be safe with the heat. I complain about Wisconsin winters, but then there are days in summer that make me want to move to Nome, Alaska!

All sections PL OK! except for Section 5 which needs to have its volume raised by 8dB or so.

Thanks. I raise all sections by about that much, but forgot to do it on 5 before I uploaded it.
