Re: Section 3

I had asked for 3 and 4 (no reply yet), but rather than compete over the section, I will withdraw my request for 3 and 4, and instead ask for Sections 6 and 7. I hadn't got moving on it anyway so no skin off my nose!

Hi, can I claim Sections 3 and 4 (the chapter titled "The Pack") please? I'll try and get them done over the next week or so.

Thanks

Here's "Toy Shop" by Harry Harrison:

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/lb/toyshop_harrison_ar.mp3

Just under 12MB, and 12:26 long.

It's the first time I've tried something longer than the Weekly or Fortnightly Poetry, any feedback on how I can improve will be gratefully received!

Here's my attempt. I should already be in the catalogue, but this is the first thing I've recorded for a while (waiting on a better mic, which I now have) so any feedback will be welcome!

Thanks, Albatross! Could you please let me know how you'd like to be credited in the catalog? (real name or pseudonym? any personal URL you'd like us to link to?) Volume is much better than last week, though could even be a bit louder with no harm done. Also, are you noise-cleaning? It sounds like ...

Thank you Secrets :) Hi Rob, Very good for your first recording, you might want to try to increase the volume a bit :) How would you like to be credited in the catalog? "Albatross" is fine - I think there are probably more people in the world that know me by that name than my real one! I'll try and...

Re: Ill-advised for a Yank to read a British text?

Is it ill-advised for an American to read what was originally a British text? As a listener rather than recorder (though watch this space) I would originally have said that it wasn't a good idea, but to be honest it matters less than I thought. For example, some might argue that there's nothing mor...
