Hahaha! The longest Section Zero in my experience is PL OK!
I know, right? Thanks!

I think I might opt for smaller sections. Chapter 1 recording thus far clocks in at 30 minutes and it's one quarter done.

Moving on to Going Solo! There is a passage in French. I can't handle it. Would it be possible to get someone to read it for me? Or is what I did in the file below actually intelligible? I do not wish to embarrass myself again. My Scottish venture leaves me awake at night. Supplique tres humble a S...

I'll happily DPL unless you are in a real rush to get this recording done.

I could DPL a chapter a week at the least, possibly more, but I don't want to over promise.
I am no rush. Thank you very much.
