    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!

Section 1 PL notes:

First of all, you have a lovely reading voice and I am so enjoying the book so far. Just one edit to make - there is a repeat at 08:20 ("Of course she had a . . . a sweet countenance"). Also, I am not sure if you check the volume of your files before uploading, but the volume of Section 1 is 86.3 dB, which is just barely within the recommended range. So you don't want your files to be much quieter in the future. Thanks so much!

Many thanks for spotting the repetition. I have corrected and posted this.

Your comment that the recording level is on the low side is also well made. I have adjusted the microphone volume and the problem should not recur in the next chapter. If you think that I ought to modify the volume of chap 1, please to not hesitate to say so.

Anthony, Section 1 is PL OK. No need to adjust the volume - I just wanted to make sure you were aware.

Are you, like me, a fan of Anthony Trollope?

To be honest, I had never read any of his novels, but I am quickly becoming a fan. His writing style reminds of Jane Austen's.

Section 2 is PL OK.

Alice Dugdale is a very minor work. I suggest you go for one of his famous Barchester novels - The Warden is a good one to start with.

Chapter 3 posted.

I forgot to say in my last that in the Gutenberg text there is a minor inconsistency with regard to the name of one of the Wanless girls: Sophia or Sophie. I have stuck to the former.

Section 3 is PL OK. I will look into The Warden.

"Now something had been said of a further visit, and Rossiter had almost promised that he would return. It is impossible not to promise when undefined invitations are given. A man cannot declare that he is engaged for ever and ever." :lol:

Yes; the quoted sentence is very fine. Typical of T's perception of human behaviour. Chapter 4 now posted.

Are you in lockdown where you are?
