Finished Chapter 30--a short one.

I'm not going to lie: I had to look up what "moiety" was and how to pronounce it :) . I also entered the PL OK in the window for the ones where it was only in the notes.

Moiety - so you wouldn't have studied much chemistry. But Melville will be using the more classical usage I presume.

I studied French (a lot) and German (a bit) but Spanish not at all.

I'll catch up on the PLing today.

Lovely prose. Moiety pronounced correctly too.

Chapter 31 is ready. In the window the chapter was listed as "Ravings Alow and Aloft" instead of "rovings" :) I changed it.

Hi EH -

Chapter 31 is PL OK.

I am not able to change the Notes box today - this is a sporadic glitch that I have with the MW on other projects but I think it might be the first time I've hit it here. I've changed the status pull down, however.

Cheers

Gail

Wow, I had no idea I didn't check in for such a long time...

How is this one going? Are you still willing to complete the project? Please let me know !
Cheers,
Ava.

Since the reader has disappeared, unfortunately, Gail, the former DPL will take over and finish this as a solo recording.

That means we're looking for a new DPL! :D
Cheers,
Ava.

Great!

No need for the db, I can see those during cataloging.

I'll trust you that you do the right thing in the meanwhile, it's not your first project ;-)
Cheers,
Ava.

You can post a DPL Wanted notice in the Listeners Wanted Forum. Just fill in the form and post, I'll do the rest.
Cheers,

OK. Thanks. No hurry and I won't be able to read for a couple of weeks -- so I'll wait until then.

Hi Ava --

I have just posted a "Listeners Wanted" in the forum. Wasn't clear what was wanted for the last line though.....

Cheers

Gail
