Nice reading of an inspiring text.

two errors noted

3:42 A weakness characteristic of human kind – you read A weakness characteristic of the human mind

P 6 6:55 not only with energy – you read the energy – change if you want to.

Great ear, fixed them both. Time stamps should be exactly the same.

Thanks!

Thanks! I always try to record multiple versions for this very purpose. I was lucky enough to have only made the kind/mind mistake in two of the three.

Section 2 coming soon ...

Ben,

It's been quite some time since you've posted here. I hope everything is OK and you're just busy with real life. I'll leave this for another month and if I don't hear from you by then I will move it to abandoned.

Hi all,

I'm posting this same message in both my active projects, so apologies for the repeat.

Sparing the boring details, life has been really complicated for the past few months, and this has just slipped through the cracks. I'm genuinely sorry for disappearing; I know it's stressful and annoying for everyone to have a lingering project (or two).

That said, I am back and ready to do some uploading. Check these spaces in the next week.

Apologies,
Ben

Hi Ben. I'm glad to see you back. As long as I know you're still around I can keep this on the books so don't worry about rushing back into it. Just a note every month or so will keep us active. :)

Hi just checking in. I've got a recording session blocked out for tomorrow on my calendar, so hopefully I can get that knocked out and edited and in the next couple of days.

Thanks!
Ben

Section 2:
https://librivox.org/uploads/darvinia/antidictator_02_delaboetie_128kb.mp3

run time 55:21

Phew! This is a long section, both in page length and because there are a LOT of footnotes. Regarding those, I dropped one of them because it was self-referential to an earlier page in this text and would be unhelpful to the listener. There are I think two others where I pushed the note by a word or two because they appear just before the end of a sentence in the text. Beyond that, I can't say that all of my Latin and Greek (and French for the matter) pronunciations are totally spot on, but I hope they aren't so horrible as to be distracting.

The length, notes, and tricky words held me up over the weekend and made me have to a fair bit of editing, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were some errors in there, but I really tried to listen close and get it all cleaned up.

Thanks! Hope it isn't as hot where you are as it is where I am!

-Ben

You have a good reading voice and the content is impressive Ben. It's been rainy in Wisconsin.

Only one error found :D

19:52 p. 23 in order to appease him they decided to send Xerxes two of their citizens - you read two of their children.

I'm doing a sort-through of all my active projects. It's been a while since we heard from you Ben. Can you just post once to let me know that you're still interested in this project?
