Re: SOLO Round About a Great Estate by Richard Jefferies

I'd like to take a stab at this one. It's a gentle tale of an earlier, seemingly more peaceful time.

I hope I've got it launched properly. Let me know if I need to correct anything.

That is a terrific summary, Lynette! Let's go with it as is. Don’t forget to credit yourself in the Magic Window.

Thank you for the careful job of reviewing; the book is better for your effort.

Well done! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Re: [TRAVEL] The Secret of the Sahara: Kufara by Rosita Forbes -jo

The introduction by H. H. Johnston (suggested by Jo) appears to be missing pages xvi and xvii. I think the book stands on its own, and would prefer not to include an incomplete introduction by a different author. What do you all think?

Okay, maybe this is better:
https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/secretofthesahara_14_forbes_128kb.mp3
Duration unchanged (43:17) Volume 88.99 dB

See patch at 36:42 - 36:48

Yes, it takes real faith to use the last of one's water to make digging for more easier!

Here's Chapter 12 again. See if you think this is ok.
https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/secretofthesahara_12_forbes_128kb.mp3

I re-recorded the phrases that bracket the rough spot. See ~00:47-00:59. Total duration is increased by one second, to 58:08.

Cheers, Steve

Re: [TRAVEL] The Secret of the Sahara: Kufara by Rosita Forbes -jo

Welcome back. I'll fix the rough spot and upload again. Good catch, thanks. Do you have any interest in writing the catalog summary? You know..."In an age when women were expected to remain at home, entertain, and rear children, Ms. Forbes elected "to boldly go where no one had gone before..." Use y...
