Section 12.

Earlier today I posted a question to you (which you may have seen) but have now deleted. Since only 7 1/2 minutes were left in Chapter 8, I made an executive decision to add them to Section 12, deleting Sec. 13. Anyone who has the patience to listen to 27 minutes of my reading of "Life on the Mississippi" can handle 35.

Here's the new Section 13. No laughs or even smiles in this one. :(

Sections 12 and 13 are PL OK!

Section 14. I wonder how much (if any) of the feud he writes about is based on reality. Whether some truth or pure fiction, I'm getting a whole new sense of this writer's depth.

I have a feeling that the feud may be real, but embellished a bit, which is in character with Mark Twain. Not that there is anything wrong with embellishing, it makes it more interesting and fun!

Yeah, reality gets creatively morphed into something even more interesting: fiction, and MT was a master at it. Here's Section 15.

I stepped on the gas as soon as the light turned green. :)

Added two "footnotes" to Section 13: At 4:31 - 4:45 and at 8:21 - 8:34.

The rest are all in Section 14 ("Huck..."), which I'll tackle after I hear whether Sec. 13 is OK.

Used the first two of the three notes re Huck in Section 14 at 0.20 - 0.26 and at 3:35 - 3:55.

The last three notes are in Connecticut Yankee, which I'm editing now. Not sure they matter that much, but we'll see. :hmm:

Oops! I've already uploaded and you've listened to Conn. Yankee. :lol: Must be the summer heat frying my brain. I'll postpone considering those three footnotes for a little while. Still a ways to go in this book.
