Luckily I read the project thread - otherwise someone else would have made it. You do need to post here if you are preclaiming a cover.

Caught....... and linked. Nice image, very pulp fictionish. Thank you :D

Anne
Yes, thank you a ton for that! I almost sent a DM to "soloist," lol.

Re: [Grp] The Black Eagle Mystery by Geraldine Bonner - lt

Chapter 20 is PL - OK! It's be an pleasure to work with you, Mike and you, Lynn! Thank you for reading this most interesting book, I love the setting, as I tend to read a lot of books set or written about the 1920s. Still feels somewhat modern, but definitely a product of a different time. :D :D Th...

Re: [Grp] The Black Eagle Mystery by Geraldine Bonner - lt

Chapter 20: 1:44 - I don't typically say anything about pronunciation, but for "Skein", it should rhyme with "Stain" and you have it like skine. I'm not going to ask you to change it, but I knit, so it was just something to point out if you'd like to change it since there are a few other to change....

By the by, I've already made a cover for this recording. It's based on this image from 1923.

Re: Informal survey

There's an English dictionary in my stack of books. I don't pull it out, but I've had it forever, so I'd be sad to part with it. There's also a (Merriam-Webster?) Japanese-English Dictionary from my school days with an atrocious design. It lists the Japanese words in romanji, among other issues. I b...

Re: One Book A Week Club 2020

I'd be happy to read 35, although I never know where my head is going to be at. This year, I'm going to try to read seriously from one book each week rather than fretting about finishing them. Most of it is non-fiction to be nebulously referenced later, anyway. I've already polished off two print bo...

Chapter 21!

I recorded Chapters 20 and 21 at the same time. This was short, so I figured I'd just get it out.

Almost there!!

Re: Short Nonfiction Collection, Vol. 071 - jo

That article is utter claptrap, but I loved, loved, loved the irony of suggesting the car as a more sociable alternative to the bicycle. I wanted to track down the original to figure out if it was being sarcastic (and if it was the Milton Bradley). It's up there with the worst predictions of all ti...
