Re: [SOLO] Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens - icequeen

When I first started reading sections of this book a year or so ago, I was anticipating what the file names would be. Of course, I didn't anticipate the "v2." Oh well, a small matter to add that.

Re: [SOLO] Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens - icequeen

So, how many of my twenty-four (and there will be one or two more later today) completed sections would you like at once? :)

Re: [SOLO] Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens - icequeen

Okay, thanks. I just looked at Version One, which I see was read by many readers. And I noticed that they did split up one long chapter near the end--although the combined times would only have been about one hour. Anyway, I know that I do tend to read a bit quicker than most of the other readers, s...

Re: [SOLO] Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens - icequeen

Thank you. Looking ahead, I know that some of the sections are going to be quite long, especially in the latter half when the short stories begin. I seem to recall being told a couple of years back that the maximum length for a section is seventy minutes. Do I recall that correctly, and if so, is it...

Thank you to both of you. I have started the Sketches by Boz thread and have requested you both, as usual. :D

Re: [SOLO] Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens

I would like my usual meta coordinator "Icequeen" and my usual Proof Listener, Fiddlesticks, please. :D

Re: [SOLO] Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens - icequeen

Thanks for the compliment on the Bumble scene. I was looking forward to doing that "Law is a ass" speech. So, once the new project gets started, I should send all twenty-four sections I have already read at once then? I will probably start the new thread either Sunday night or sometime on Monday. I'...

Re: [FULL] Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare - kit

The provost's bits are short in the first two acts. Here they are, including the one line omitted from the MW. https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/measureformeasure_provost_1_2.mp3 https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/measureformeasure_provost_2_1.mp3 https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/measureformeasur...

I just discovered a small omission in the MW. The Provost has one line early in 2_1.

Re: [SOLO] Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens - icequeen

The next project will be "Sketches By Boz." Not a novel, but rather a series of sketches, usually humorous, written at the beginning of Dickens' career. "Boz" was his pen name during that part of his life. The latter part of the collection contains his first short stories. Here is a sample of the hu...

Re: [FULL] Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare - kit

It has occurred to me that I'm playing BOTH of the men who are whispering asides in II,ii. It's a good thing I'm planning on different voices.
