Nature And Art by Elizabeth Inchbald (1753 - 1821).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/nature-and-art-by-elizabeth-inchbald/
This is a novel by the author of the play Lover's Vows which was mentioned in Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. William and Henry come to London after the death of their father. They were educated in starkly different ways, one represented by nature and another by art. This novel follows their paths in life, and the influence of their education on their respective choices. This book was popular when it was published and is still considered an important Jacobin Novel. The goal of Jacobin novels was to explain to the people the values of the French revolution to the lower classes by showing the evils of society. Other authors who wrote Jacobin novels are Charlotte Turner Smith and William Godwin.

    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/3787
    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.

Anne,
glad to work with you again. This etext is not accessible for wordcounts. So I will enter the chapter numbers. If you want, you can do the wordcounts, but I think we could also do withoutt them so you don't have to.

I'd love to join! This will be my first audiobook project. I have a podcast, but I want some more practice reading into a mic.

It shows that all the chapters are open? If that's the case, I'll take the first chapter--or the next available one. Thanks!
