The Blue Jar Story Book by Maria Edgeworth (1768 - 1849) and others.

This delightful collection can now be found in our catalog at https://librivox.org/the-blue-jar-story-book-by-maria-edgeworth/
This is a collection of 6 delightful stories about children by four of the best authors of the period: Charles Lamb, Mary Lamb and Maria Edgeworth and Alicia Catherine Mant. These stories are well written and although they feature children and their escapades, clearly can be enjoyed by adults as well if not more. ( Phil Chenevert)
    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/34470
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      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!

Thank you chaya, that would be very appreciated. This is standard level, nothing fancy. You do not need to check the ID3 tags (metadata). This should be a fun book.

Great Kristin, :thumbs: This is a long section; would you like to break it into two parts for easier reading and editing? I can easily set that up if you like, r just leave it as is?

If you don't mind splitting it, I think that would be better. I just finished reading 7k+ of Freud in one sitting and it was tiring at best! LOL

Oh no, I don't mind at all and think it will make the story better. I will pick a point in the middle and post that in the MW. And thanks again for your willingness to do this long section.

Although I can promise it will be easier and probably more fun than 7k+ of Freud!
