Hi - welcome to the project. Someone should be along to check off your test just so you don't have to reread a longer piece we have to have the tech bits right before we can catalogue.
This has good length chapters for a first read. As it is your first I'll only sign you up for one at first - it does take longer than it seems, this way if you hate the writer or the book you don't have 2 more chapters hanging over your head. So let's just start with one - and you are always welcome to come back for more.

Anne

OK - I've made you a reader page https://librivox.org/reader/1608 which will show what you are signed up for and how it is progressing - you can bookmark it or see it by clicking on tour name in the MW
The first post of all project pages tells you what you need to do - if you don't understand something just ask - we were all new once :D

Hi Anne! I totally understand and appreciate the first chapter trial-run. I enjoyed reading Chapter 2 and would love more chapters if you are willing to assign them to me. Please let me know what you think! Thank you!

thanks - section 2 is great, and I've allocated 3 and 4.
Sorry for the delay - I have been unexpectedly busy with real life but hopefully all is now well.

No worries at all! I am feeling the same about real life lately, so here's hoping it gets less crazy busy for the both of us. Hopefully your busy was a good busy!

Here are my recordings for sections 3 (10:20) and 4 (9:57), respectively:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/oldbroadbrimin_04_rathborne_128kb.mp3.

I'm really enjoying these readings, so if you wouldn't mind, I'd love to claim sections 5 and 6 too. Let me know!

Thank you so much!

all yours, thank you. I realised I mistyped the file name - it should be oldbroadbrim_##_rathborne_128kb.mp3 I'll fix yours but it would be nice if the others were correct.

Hi Anne!

Here are my sections -

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/oldbroadbrimin_23_rathborne_128kb.mp3 - 12:09
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/oldbroadbrimin_24_rathborne_128kb.mp3 - 16:39

Hmm, when I last looked at this book (I did the recordings when I signed up) I thought I signed up for the last 2 chapters and thus I did the End outro. Now there is something to be read at the end? I can take the end of book part of the outro off if needed. Just saw it now when checking my chapter numbers...
