The Children's Book of Birds by Olive Thorne Miller (1831 - 1918).


An educational book aimed at children, teaching about birds, their ways, and habits. (Peter Nenyuk)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/41141
  • 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!

This is posted as a Solo and the first poster is planning to read it - you need to look through the different "readers wanted" forums to find a project to join - , they all have keen book coordinaors (BCs) just hoping for you to help . It is a bit confusing here at first - but we all were new once :D

Hi kiwibird549. I see that you have gotten an OK on your 1-minute test, however, this is a fairly ambitious first solo.

As a new reader, we strongly recommend that you record a section or two in group projects before embarking on a solo, so that you can get a sense of the amount of time and effort a commitment to a solo recording would entail, as well as become a little familiar with the community here and our process for submitting files, prooflistening, etc. before starting off on a solo project.

Also as a soloist, you will be responsible not only for recording and editing all the sections, but you will also be your own book coordinator (BC) which means you will be responsible for entering all the information (titles, time, links) into the workflow system.

Kiwibird, I see that you've claimed a couple of sections in a group project. I'm going to move this thread to Book Suggestions to keep the Launch Pad tidy. Just post in this thread when you're ready to get started, and we'll move it back.
