  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Lee!

As I set this one up, I think I should point out that there are a lot more chapters than 12. There are 3 parts, with at least 8 chapters to each part. Are you planning to combine chapters?

Back in a moment with our MW!

Duh! I just saw the last number in the whole column. Also, I'm not too swift with Roman numerals. :(

As the Santa Claus song goes, I'm making a list AND CHECKING IT TWICE, and now it looks like 28 including the Introduction, but I'll go with your count. :) I'll ask you to do the math and add -- 17 (I think).

If the writing and translation stay as good as Ch. 1, I think we're in for a treat.

Ch 6.

"Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!" Here's a terrific psychological picture of that idea.
