Though it seems to be a different edition, we do already have a reading of Gulliver's Travels in the catalog:
https://librivox.org/gullivers-travels-by-jonathan-swift/

If you'd still like to coordinate, we can do that, but readers often prefer to do something that hasn't yet been recorded. :wink:

Hi Victoria,
I will MC this for you. Will you be the DPL?
If not, the ~ on the subject line should be added.
Thanks,
Amy

Is it possible to turn this into a solo project? I would greatly enjoy completing it, if not could I have the first three sections?

Thank you so much!

Well I see a request for 'solo' status, above. If you decide to go the multi-reader route, however, put me down for a section. I love this real old stuff! (and satire too, of course).

Thank you,
Brize

I would prefer for this project to be collaborative. Thanks for the friendly offer. The first three sections are yours!

Four sounds good, to get me started. I think I'm going to enjoy this; I might be a bit of a 'Swiftie' (16th century version).

Thank you,
