Our latest proofreading project is The Sundered Streams: The History of a Memory that Had No Full Stops, a 1907 novel by Reginald Farrer, who was much better known for his work in botany than for his fiction but seems to have had diverse interests. According to the book’s plot summary, this particular work highlight’s the author’s “Buddhist beliefs, his passion for the novels of Jane Austen, and his love for his native Yorkshire moors.”
An earlier blog post explains how you can join Distributed Proofreaders to help turn our scans of this rarely-seen book into a new electronic edition freely available through Project Gutenberg. When you’re ready to begin, you can join in the efforts at the project page.
