Nami-ko by Kenjiro Tokutomi (1868 - 1927). Translated by Sakae Shioya ( - 0) and others


A story of domestic life in Japan at the beginning of the Meiji Period. Translation of Hototogisu (The Cuckoo), one of the most famous Japanese novels of that time. ( to be amended)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/namikorealisticn00tokuiala
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    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!

    "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]" [*] Say:
    "Nami-ko, by Roka Tokutomi. Translated by Sakae Shioya and Edwin Edgett [Chapter]"
For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
  • "Section [number] of Nami-ko by Roka Tokutomi. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
  • If you wish, say:
    "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

END of recording:
  • At the end of the section, say:
    "End of Section [number]"

  • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
    "End of Nami-ko, by Kenjiro Tokutomi. Translated by Sakae Shioya and Edwin Edgett."

There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Thank you Larry, I appreciate it!
Seems you're going on a trip through Asia with your recent DPL projects :wink:

I won't start rightaway because there's a little detail I need to figure out before I start recording... Won't take long though, promise.
Cheers,
Ava.
