A Christmas Hamper: Stories and Tales for Little Folks by Various - ( - ).

This book contains stories, tales, and pictures from Christmas for little folks! ( Shriya(spatel2))
(Converted from duet to group project)
  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/files/53299/53299-h/53299-h.htm

This is a duet by me and Noori. We will finish this in about a week. We'll finish our other duet before we start this, although we want this to be done by next Friday. We will PL each other's work. I honestly have no idea when the copyright year was, but I know it's public domain cause I found it with Project Gutenberg.

There are twelve sections, cause there is a preface(but it's super short)

Nope. I just moved us to Going Solo - even though you two are now the Dynamic Duo. Image
