Hokay...many, many apologies for this, but I didn't realize until I edited my ID3 tags that, while the story was published in 1914, the woman who wrote it died in 1979. If that's going to prohibit some users from being able to listen, I'll gladly find another short to read (supposing, of course, that I'm accepted into this fine collection at all!). :).

Hi John!

Thanks a lot! :D

Your story is perfectly ok for this collection, as it is clearly in the PD. Only listeners outside the US might have to be a bit careful before downloading.

HI Kangaroo692!

The tale of Peter Rabbit: there are few small things that need to be fixed:

part of the intro is missing:
"The Tale of Peter Rabbit, by Beatrix Potter" "This is a Librivox recording. All Librivox Recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit Librivox.org"

3:05 stumble
It would have been a beautiful thing to hide in, if it had not had so much water in it.

4:55 stumble
A white cat was staring at some gold-fish; she sat very, very still, but now and then the tip of her tail twitched as if it were alive.

5:10 stumble
He went back towards the tool-shed, but suddenly, quite close to him, he heard the noise of a hoe—scr-r-ritch, scratch, scratch, scritch.

Hi and welcome to LibriVox, Mahima!

Thanks a lot! :D

The text link you posted leads to a copyrigthed site about learning English, various exercises, tests, etc.
Could you please post a direct link to the text you used? (We need to be absolutely sure that the text you read from is in the public domain.)
I'll wait with adding your recording to the MW till I've heard back from you.
Elli

I'm not really sure if this should go in here or in Short Poetry :hmm:

HI Mahima!

Thanks a lot! :D

The site you've used is based in England and that can sometimes cause problems regarding the copyright, as not all texts that are PD in England are also PD in the US. But I've found the same text on Project Gutenberg:

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/10577

There are just a few tiny things that need to be fixed:
The silence at the end of your recording is a little too long. It should be 5 secs. Also there is a bit of background noise. It would be good if you could do some noisecleaning.
