I'm excited to work on this. So far in listening for PL the story has caught my interest, and you have a pleasant voice to listen to!

Section 1:
PL okay

Section 2: (just some pretty minor stuff)
15:10 Miss-read/stumble: Conde was out of a different
17:00 Repeat: and are not very often disposed to - and are not very
24:36 Repeat: man of noble port an- and commanding
Thank you so much GamersThumbsR (I don't know how else to address you but I hope I'm not being too weird). I have updated the audio and also uploaded the next section thereby increasing your workload hehe :D :hmm:

Thats not weird at all! My name is Rebecca if that's more comfortable for you, but my username works too. I'll have a listen before the end of the weekend (but probably before the end of the day).
Yay thank you so much for such an expedited response Rebecca (Like the Daphne du Maurier gothic novel?). I hope I don't bore you terribly by the end off this project :lol: :lol: :lol:

"A Sinister Poem"
Missed word kissed the leathern paw; she has left such a scent with so profound a Casuist.
Do you suppose that the despicable steps leading into the church should be?
Power is given the book of fate, my dominions after the next three weeks.
Think on your master, not a suitor.

"A Sinister Poem -- Part II"
Dames of Madrid continually present themselves; I come to you a suppliant.
While Rosario dispersed the contents…
Parts of the room doom me to the inevitable day of trial.

I don't have such an eye for poetry. It escapes me at the best of times, but my word that is sinister! Lol

Section 4: PL OK (and good job figuring out that last time stamp I gave you. I had a typo and messed that up by 2 mins somehow)


Section 5: What a twist! As for PL, I'll leave this to your discretion...
20:10 Wording - Throwing himself at the [Friar's] feet
...You said 'Father' instead, but it doesn't really change the meaning of the sentence, so it technically meets the PL standard for this book. Being your book though, I'll let you decide. Otherwise...PL OK!

Oh damn I'm so sorry, I completely messed up didn't I. I've been HELLUVA BUSY WITH VOLUNTEERING, DEADLINES, SCHOOL AND EXAMS and I could barely get the time to record the shorter sections. I promise to upload at least 2 or 3 sections a week from now on.

Don't worry too much about it! I don't mind if progress is slower than you'd like as long as there IS progress. I don't want you to feel burnt out on this project or for you to neglect your other obligations.

Hi!
Just thought that maybe you didn't get the time to check the project so I'd slide into your notifications. There are 3 more sections waiting for PL-ing.
Thank you :D :D :D :D

Oh my gosh, sorry! I didn't realize there were new sections available to PL because I didn't get a notification. I'll do those ASAP.
