A History of and Suggestions in the Making of Biscuits, Quick Breads and Cake by Claudia Quigley Murphy (1863 - 1941).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project: https://librivox.org/a-history-of-and-suggestions-in-the-making-of-biscuits-quick-breads-and-cake-by-claudia-quigley-murphy/
This is a very short treatise on breads and cakes, published in 1921. The author is Claudia Quigley Murphy, a notable American journalist and suffragist. ( Carolin)
    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!): https://archive.org/details/historyofsuggest00murp
    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!

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?

      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      breadsandcake_##_murphy_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. breadsandcake_01_murphy_128kb.mp3)
    9. Example ID3 V2 tags (just leave those blank!)

I would like to DPL this if that is alright. I've never done it on a group project only solo projects, so it would be nice to start very small.
I have had a lot of real life work the last few weeks. Please bear with me as I may take a little longer to PL or respond. I'll still get to everything as soon as possible. :D

Hi Carolin,

May I claim sections 2-4?
I try to avoid voice cracks in my recordings.
To PLers- please correct sloppy pronunciation or weird slurring :/

Walnut, I'm walking the line between what Librivox asks for PL'ing standard, and your signature line, requesting pronunciation critique. :) How strict would you like me to be? What I've heard so far is fine by Librivox, but I've heard a few words that you might want correcting? :hmm:

Time is 4:51

I have added the word "Recipes" after the section on Meat Pies at 2:15 as it seemed a very abrupt change of subject for the reader. If not wanted it can easily be deleted.
