Re: [SOLO] American Notes (Version 2) by Charles Dickens - icequeen

You would think with all this "social distancing" going on that I would have more time for reading. Around the time it all started, I caught a cold (just a cold, don't worry!) which affected my voice. It's finally getting better, though I'm still coughing a lot. I'm going to try to get back to readi...

I hope you've completely recovered from the concussion.

Re: [SOLO] American Notes (Version 2) by Charles Dickens - icequeen

Read to the end of Chapter Three, which is Section Four. If I had put them into one file, it would have been around ninety minutes long.

It's done. I managed to figure out how to do it. But thanks anyway. :)

Re: [SOLO] American Notes (Version 2) by Charles Dickens - icequeen

I started relabelling the chapter names in order to get the new section I added where I wanted it--and quickly discovered that I could drag the sections, which was a lot easier. But now the final section has a blank in the "reader" column which I can't seem to change.

Re: [SOLO] American Notes (Version 2) by Charles Dickens - icequeen

I have most of the long Chapter Three read now, and it is obvious that I'm not going to squeeze it into the time limit. In fact, I stopped at 1:11:00 and still have several paragraphs to read! I am therefore dividing it at a natural spot. I recently noticed for the first time that in the MW there is...

Re: [SOLO] American Notes (Version 2) by Charles Dickens - icequeen

Okay, I'll probably divide it into two sections then. And looking at the chapter, I see Dickens did provide two breaks in the writing where I can divide them. I have actually been saying "Chapter [number]" at the beginning of the sections already, so I'll try to get used to the section numbers being...

Re: [SOLO] American Notes (Version 2) by Charles Dickens - icequeen

Prefaces and first two chapters read. Whenever I read Dickens' descriptions of places in England, I take it for granted that he's got the details right, since I have never been to the U.K. Partway through Chapter Two, he starts describing my home town of Halifax, Nova Scotia as it was in 1842. He fi...

Re: [FULL] Richard II by William Shakespeare - kit

Bolingbroke completed to the end of Act Three. Plus, I just realized today that I still had not done my part of the Dramatis Personae so here is that as well: https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/richardii_dp_brad.mp3 https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/richardii_bolingbroke_2_3.mp3 https://librivox.or...

Re: [SOLO] American Notes (Version 2) by Charles Dickens - icequeen

There should be one more section actually. When I was asked in the form how many sections, I neglected to count the section 0.

I'll get started on this in the next couple of days.
