The Crown Of Life by George Gissing (1857 - 1903).

So what is the crown of life? Follow the jurney of Peers and Irene as they attempt to discover. It is both a coming of age novel and love story at the same time, one which would bring delight to philosophers with many conversations for and against imperialism, romantics who would follow the long courtship in the center of the plot, and sosiologists who would follow with interest the vivid way in which George Gissing describes the society in which he lived. ( Stav Nisser.)
    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/4541
    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.

Hiya - I'd like to sign up for the first 3 chapters, please. My first reading! Do people usually use a name or their forum pseudonym? I think I'll go with TeeCee please :)

Hello SunnyEMT,
welcome to Librivox. I hope you will enjoy here. The first three chapters are all yours. However before you proceed please submit a one-minute sampal recording, just to make sure that your technical settings are all correct. Your catalog name would be what ever you like. It can be your forums name, your real name, or anything else that you choose. Please let me know if you have a url which you would like to link to your name. Good luck and have fun,
Stav.

Hi Stav! I was ready to take a break for awhile, but just couldn't stay away, and I really enjoy working on the projects you're involved with. Glad to see you've already started another. Since chapters 1-3 are already spoken for, I'll take 4-6 for now, and go from there.
All the best,
Laura
