OK, your MW is ready for you! I put a ~ in the subject line to advertise for a DPL, unless you have someone already lined up.

Sounds good!
I hope to get started this weekend. The copy is a PDF, and I'm bringing it into Word, which takes some care to keep it clean. It also gives me something to do while I get over a cold, so the whole thing doesn't sound like Froggy from the Little Rascals.

Thanks, ladies!

Section 1: Intro and Ch1 is ready for PL.
This is likely the first book I've read all the way through before recording.
I'm really looking forward to doing this one!
Next week I largely have the house to myself, so I'm hoping to make some serious headway with it.
Please don't feel a need to get to the PL's quickly, I just enjoy staying on a project once I get started, but my push is only on my part. I find that's my best chance of keeping the characters consistent.

Great, Keith - I look forward to listening. I will get started tomorrow. I appreciate the flexibility on the pace of the project. Typically I can keep it pretty steady, and I’ll give you a heads up if there’s any point at which it will be an unusually long time before I can get to chapters.

Chapters 3, 4, and 5 are ready for PL.
I was holding off because Ch 3 & 4 are small, but I didn't realize 5 was going to be so big, sorry!
I thought it funny in Ch4, he tells the reader to close his eyes and picture the scene, which only works with an audio book...did he know???
Ch 5 was one of the most fun I've had in a long time, but also painful to correct when I found mistakes that were hard to match the voice.
Hopefully it comes off well.

Yes. I loved how the author chatted up how good of a storyteller he was. Thanks for putting all the pressure on me, Willy!
