POST IN THREAD - any ADMIN can edit this post and delete your post

This thread is for multi volume works which have some volumes catalogued already but are not complete and no one has put their hands up to complete.
If you are interested in either reading another volume as a Solo or starting a group project, just set it up in the new project Launch Pad and ask your MC to update the list. Some of the projects are very long and will need a high level of experience and commitment :D

And if there are some not listed please post here and they will be added.

The early history of Rome by Titus Livius is overdue for completion. The first book as been completed here but it appears the original book coordinator has gone silent. Does anyone want to help gather some readers to complete the remains of the 6 volume work?

Not that you would know as I left her name attached but the BC was unable to continue (real-life issues) and I coordinated the majority of that project and catalogued it with the help of other members - but I didn't have any commitment to starting other books in the series. And am not interested in doing so :D. So I've not gone silent, I'm just not interested.
If someone is prepared to do the work needed to sort out what is needed I will add it to the first post.

Added to the first post.
Just pointing out that the recording we have is George Baker's translation, and the one suggested above is William Gordon's. Baker's translation, as far as I know, wasn't compiled in a single volume, it appeared as seven separate volumes:

Vol 2: https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.55202
Vol 3: https://archive.org/details/vol3livytranslat00livy
Vol 4: https://archive.org/details/vol4livytranslat00livy
Vol 5: https://archive.org/details/vol5livytranslat00livy
Vol 6: https://archive.org/details/vol6livytranslat00livy
Vol 7: https://archive.org/details/vol7livytranslat00livy

I am considering BCing it, as soon as one of the Classics I have open is done.

I wonder if this series should go here: Great Men and Famous Women ed. by Charles Horne. 8 volumes, all on PG:
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/search/?query=great+men+and+famous+women

The first volume has been recorded but the rest are wide open. There was a discussion here in 2012, later annotated to show that volume 1 was recorded.
