Re: SOLO Benjamin Franklin by Robin McKown - lny

Here's chapter 3. Really enjoying this book.
We were never in any immediate danger from the Sonoma and Napa County fires, thank goodness- they were all around us, but all about 45 minutes to an hour away. But, like you, we have been breathing brown soup for several weeks.

Section 34 is up! This really is a departure from the previous mini-bios. So far, it is more like an essay on the works of Austen. I like it, though.
Also, I learned several new words , like gigot (leg of mutton - trying to understand the context of this is a stretch) and diapason (burst of sound).

Chapter 2 is up. One of the chapters I did for a collaborative Autobiography of Franklin a little while back contained this extraordinary story of his dealings with the governor of Pennsylvania. :!:

Congratulations on completion of The Red Reign! A fascinating book. I recommended it to Marilyn and she commented to me how much she enjoyed your reading in chapter 1 (I agree!).

Meanwhile, 33 is up. We are finally to Jane Austen, which is what attracted me to this book in the first place.

Re: SOLO Benjamin Franklin by Robin McKown - lny

Okay, here we go! I guess I will pretty much bounce back and forth between the two books. I think this one is pretty fun to read, so I hope you find it fun to listen to as well.
Chapter 1 is in the MW!

Good morning! Hope you are having a lovely birthday!
Section 32 is ready for when you are through celebrating :D - and looks like Benjamin Franklin is good to go, thanks to Linny.

Never mind, my brain is fried today.
I think I see what settings were not correct (thanks to Phil Chenevert and his wonderful videos). See if this works.

Re: SOLO A Book of Sibyls: Mrs. Barbaud, Miss Edgeworth, Miss Opie, Miss Austen - lny

Whew, 31 is finally in! Got a new MacBook as my old one is making suspicious fan noises (and Marilyn wanted it for her quilt guild stuff, so win-win), but migrating my files, settings, and apps has been a pain. Then to top it all off, when I went to download this to the MW, they required my admin pa...
