This is the sign-up post for the next chapter of Reading LotR Aloud, for book IV, chpater 2: "The Passage of the Marshes".
Since we have had fewer readers lately and had to split the chapters to sections sometimes too large for the LJ voice post option, we want to try a different approach and see how it works.
Therefore, we split the chapter up beforehand and are now offering a number of slots for the reading. We hope to have enough sign-ups to fill them all. If not, we can either keep the leftover slots for the next reading, or some of us can read two.
is travelling without reliable internet connection until the 14th of July, we also changed the original schedule so she can take care of uploading the readings to our Tindeck account for those of you who are not using LJ voice post and would like make use of the Tindeck account (*).
Sign-ups start today and continue through July 6th
Assignments: July 7th
Readings begin: July 14th
Chapter goes up: July 21st
We would like to try out this way for the next reading and see how it works. For this reading, we have eight reading slots of about two book pages each. You just need to sign up as usual, but if you are willing or eager to cover more than one slot, please let us know.
Please let us know what you think of this change, and also about any ideas or suggestions you have for keeping the recording and listening the most comfortable for all of us! Please also let us know if you would like to participate but the schedule is not working for you; we're happy to adapt it if possible.

(*) The Tindeck account for Read_Lotr_Aloud is here: Tindeck for RLA
It is an online space for music and audio recordings, and the_winterwitch
gifted us with a lifetime premium membership so we can make the best use of the account. It is meant to store the readings of those of us who prefer to record not with LJ voice post, and also eventually as a backup space for all our old readings, as sadly those are lost if an LJ account is purged.
For the time being, Winterwitch will upload the files for you, either getting it herself from any online space you provide, or if you send it to her by Email. She will also gladly help you with any technical issues about recording, converting or uploading if necessary so all of us can find the easiest and most comfortable way of recording our readings.
