I would be very, very excited if the Journal of George Fox (founder of Quakerism) could be a Librivox project. There is a version with updated wording called the Armistead/Ellwood edition which I think would be the best version. I think it would be downloaded/streamed by many people around the world.
I am a newbie and recently attempted to record the first third of a different Quakerism book, but I really did not like the audio result. So I would probably not prefer to read myself on any project, for now.
Please discuss with me if you have any interest.

Welcome!
Do you happen to have a link to the edition text you're talking about? (Or, if that was published in 1925 or later, an older edition?)

I wonder if you would find this source of interest. https://archive.org/details/passagesfromlife00foxg_1/page/n5/mode/2up

It is a selection only of the journal, but looks rather comprehensive for all of that. It is just about the right length for a group project here at LibriVox. The complete two volume set of the journal would be a bit of an undertaking, even daunting, but it is still a possibility of course.
Drop and roll!

I mentioned above that the Armistead/Ellwood version had updated wording, but that was a misunderstanding-- it does not have updated wording. However it is available here:
