Inside the Lines by Earl Derr Biggers (1884 - 1933) and Robert Welles Ritchie (1879-1942).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/inside-the-lines-by-earl-derr-biggers/

As World War I commences, a plucky young American woman in Europe on a business trip begins to realize that she may have remained too long. She and others anxious to leave for home are caught up in events swirling about them. A mysterious British officer becomes involved. This romance-tinged spy thriller begins on a train in Calais bound for Paris and ends in Gibraltar.
Based on a 1915 play of the same name, the novel was adapted for the screen in a 1918 silent version and again as a “talky” in 1930. This was the third novel written by Biggers, who went on to write six Charlie Chan novels in the 1920’s and 1930’s. -- Lee Smalley

    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!

OK, your MW is ready for you! Looks like another great story! Will you be adding the second author's name when you do your intros?

I was going to ask you how it's usually handled. Both names (with middles) would be too big a mouthful IMO. Any suggestions?

You could just do both first and last names, and leave out the middle names.

The titles are added to the MW. Hopefully they're all appropriate and won't confuse or frustrate us. :)

And I'll credit both authors w/o saying their middle names.

It looks like we no longer have to opt to receive notifications of postings here. I assume it's now automatic for you and me?

Actually, if you go up to the top of the first post, there are three buttons on the left side. The one in the middle, with the wrench, has options to click for notifications. You will want to click the Bookmark one, it's the second item on the drop down menu. That one will send you notifications.


Moving on to Going Solo!

Just FYI, the subscribe topic -- on my screen -- isn't as you described. There are no three dots above the first post. After a lot of searching I found the wrench with "Subscribe Topic" at the very top and bottom of the page. The subscribe option was already checked. I also clicked on the bookmark option, so between them I should be receiving notices of your posts. Would you kindly post something, say, "Lets Go Mets!" to see whether I receive it. (OK, make it "Angels") :)

Here's Chapter 1. I included the authors' middle names in the intro to this chapter and will for the final chapter, but just their first and last names for all the others.

Here's 2. I think it might take a little while to "get into" this one, but then it could, I hope, be absorbing.
