No no, I'm the only person who's held this project up, Viktor! Everyone else has been in perfect time. :D Thank you ever so much, I'll finish the blog page shortly.

Re: solo [ENG] The Diary of a Provincial Lady by EM Delafield - cori

Thank you! I've fixed almost all of these ... first, the 'Legamus' on every recording (how DID I leave that out!?) And then specific notes: CHAPTER 2 6.25-ish: approach subject of burnt porridge circuitously and with utmost care. 19.00-ish: 'December 19th' was omitted CHAPTER 3 23.05-ish: whose son ...

Re: solo [ENG] ~ The Diary of a Provincial Lady by EM Delafield - cori

That would be fantastic, Erin, thank you! Noting meaning-changes would be perfect ... and definitely any mispronounciations (there are a few words that I invariably struggle with, even when I theoretically KNOW how to pronounce them -- happily this book has no 'infinitesimal anemones'!) I hope you e...

Hot cross buns, anyone? Preferably actually hot: split in two, toasted gently and buttered. Wonderful!

Re: The Diary of a Provincial Lady by EM Delafield (cori)

Yes, I would love a proof-listener for this project. It's such a fun book! Here's a lovely review of it by Jilly Cooper, if you need some enticing: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2008/may/03/featuresreviews.guardianreview31 It's in a diary format, of course, so I've tried to create sections of ab...

Re: [SOLO] The Ancient Highway: A Novel of High Hearts - crow

Well, I've not listened to the story yet. :D But I do love a bit of copy-editing. What do you think of the following (and if it doesn't work for you, that's completely fine, I'm not precious at all, and it's your book!) This truly is a tale of high hearts and open woods, full of colourful characters...

Re: The Twelve Chairs - Ilf and Petrov

Hey, yes, the Woolf is mine. :D How lovely, I'm glad you enjoyed it! My worry with online texts is that they can be altered, which in theory confers a new copyright on them. This happens where languages have changed over time, so words are 'updated' to the modern usage. Also where words are censored...

Re: The Twelve Chairs - Ilf and Petrov

Welcome to Legamus! Unfortunately the translation at lib.ru is in breach of copyright (pretty much everywhere in the world.) It was published in 1961, and there's no suggestion that it was especially posthumous. https://pulsearch.princeton.edu/catalog/2397460 (We focus on authors who died in 1947 or...

Re: PD in 2018

Oooh, good list, Viktor!

I spent some time looking at Hugh Lofting (Dr Doolittle) and Baroness Orczy (Scarlet Pimpernel) -- both have series started at LibriVox that could be finished here now. Expat Americans (and others!) might be interested in Willa Cather's later work too.

Good to have you joining us, T ... yes, the forum is still active, though rather quiet at the moment. And this particular project seems to have dropped off the radar a little, so I appreciate you posting to wake it up. :D We'd be happy to accept contributions! Have you recorded at LibriVox or elsewh...

Re: Suitability of book?

That sounds completely fine to me -- we work off date of death (unless there's obvious complications such as the book not having been published in the author's lifetime.) In this case, it's pretty straightforward though. :D

Yes, any of those would work ... or even Godrevy Lighthouse ... that's the one that inspired the title.

What are you reading at the moment?

Doesn't need to be virtuously in the public domain ... just, it's fun to see what other people are leafing through. I'm on book 4 of The Expanse series . 'Hollywood blockbuster sci-fi', set a few hundred years from now, with Mars colonised (but in the process of being terraformed) and other planets'...

Re: An eating and drinking thread

I love pumpkin soup -- I ate it often when I was in Australia, where a pumpkin is a regular vegetable. It's frustrating that we Brits are so silly about them. A swirl of cream cheese stirred in, and hot buttered rolls (I used part-baked ones, I'm no cook!) Cosy food bliss ... Don't think I've ever h...
