Great! Here is the first chapter of the second volume.

Volume 2, Chapter 1:
10:03 - "[...]reason I want you not to tell *is*, because I wish to surprise" [reading omitted "is"]

14:01 - distracting breathy noise?

25:03 - "unpolished boors in the *county*. I assure you his groom..." ["county" read as "country"]

36:47 - distracting background noise

36:49 - distracting background noise

38:28 - distracting background noise

44:26 - distracting background noise

44:36 - distracting background noise

44:51 - distracting background noise
I'm popping this up as ready for spot PL now, sorry about all my background noise in this recording! I have tried to sort it out, the only thing is that at 10:03 the word 'is' is in there, it is grouped in the same breath with the 'because'. Sorry about that, I will try in future to make every word more distinguishable, I have a bad habit of speaking too fast! Thanks :D

Sorry for the absence! I had a cold so my voice sounded awful, and then Uni started back so I got a bit caught up - but I'm excited to get stuck back into this again :-)

Welcome back!! Apologies for the wait.

Only one PL note:

14:16 - "which Robert could not possibly misunderstand, but which *he* [read as she] prudently resolved not to notice."

Vol II, Ch. 2 is PL-OK.

No bother at all! Thanks for listening! I'm so sorry, I seem to have a recurring accent thing where I speak too fast in these sentences, I actually do say 'he' but I can understand how it might be heard as 'she'. I have tried to fix it but unfortunately my microphone is terrible when it comes to reinserting sections, and I've been fiddling with it but the sound quality is very different and it's quite an off putting shift! I'm hoping that one will be okay left as it is, and I'll try and be more aware in future of how my accent changes words! If you would rather me to rerecord the chapter, that is also totally fine - please let me know your thoughts! :-)

We will leave it as is then. Don’t re-record an hour long chapter. 😂

Haha phew! I actually just recorded the next chapter and was away to edit it, however on listening back it appears my microphone has well and truly kicked the bucket this time! I'm going to invest in a new one, and hopefully then I shouldn't have my editing problem anymore! I was hoping to upload the next chapter today but alas it will have to wait a day or two till the new mic is delivered but more recordings shall be on their way soon! :-)

Hi! Many apologies for the massive wait on this next chapter, I am in my final year at Uni and clearly overestimated my ability to multitask! I am almost finished for the Christmas break though and so hopefully I can get ahead a bit more now I have less on.

Vol 2 Ch 6: 26:12
