    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!): https://archive.org/details/morecelticfairyt00jaco
    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.

I'll set this up for you. MW coming shortly.

EDIT: A few questions before I can proceed: 1) Are you looking for a DPL, or do you have one lined up? 2) There is a preface to this book. You filled out the form to indicate that you don't plan to include that, is that right? If so, I'd ask you to reconsider. It is not too long, and many readers/listeners (including myself) find author's prefaces quite interesting. 3) You didn't indicate how many sections you want in the MW. I need to know this before I create it.

Thank you mightyfelix (or Devorah) for MCing this! The answers to your questions are
No, I do not have a DPL in mind, but if anyone would like to volunteer, they can.
And yes, I did mean to include the preface, then accidentally forgot it. :oops:
There are 22 sections, according to the number of stories(with preface and such) which are in the book. I hope this answers your questions suitably. :D

Ok, great! Your MW is set up, and I have added a tilde to your subject line, to show potential DPLs that you are looking.

:lol: That is just an abbreviation of my screen name, to show everyone at a glance who the MC for this project is. You'll see a similar collection of letters at the tail end of each project thread.

Hello everyone.

I was just about to commence doing this book as a solo. Happy to just contribute here though. I have recorded the Preface, and uploaded it for approval.

Sorry robertrosina, but I have already claimed that section. Perhaps you could use it in the solo you were mentioning? LibriVox does accept and enjoy multiple versions of the same book. :D Also, you may want to submit a 1-minute test and contribute to a collaborative work before doing a solo.

Hi,

I'm new here but I'd love to help, the name for the LibriVox catalogue is Megan Thomas, and I currently don't have a website or blog to share.

I think I could get two of these stories done in the next 1-2 months, so please could I claim:
2 - Jack the Cunning Thief
11 - The Greek Princess and the Young Gardnener
MegReads :D
