Re: FULL [DR] Railway Children, E. Nesbit - dlo

It's your choice; after all, I'm just leaving a gap.

But when I read it I just felt that the Russian gentleman wouldn't say "said his" about himself.

Beth, near the beginning of chapter 7 ...

I'm narrating Edith Nesbit's The Railway Children at the moment, so the next chapter will be delayed.

There was a wild wind that drove flocks of dark purple clouds across the sky “like herds of dream-elephants,” as Phyllis said.

Re: constant repetition of public domain message

Yes, just like that!

Re: constant repetition of public domain message

A while ago, I was asked to make some recordings for someone interested in ASMR. That whispery voice seemed to fit with subliminal hypnotic suggestion.
