Hi, Helen. Thank you for your comments.
Well, about those chapter keywords. I must admit that when I read a book I almost always skip over reading them. But I certainly could record them. Do you happen to know what the usual librivox policy is? What is your opinion?

Hi Carol,

It's part of the book; I have seen it included in other projects I've worked on.

I must tell you how who wonderful your reading is. :D

Enjoy the rest of your day.
Helen

Treasure the love you receive above all.

Deferring to your excellent judgment, I added the chapter keywords for chapter 1, and it is now ready for you.

And Chapter 2 is ready. Oh my, have you ever heard a more fawning description of the author's patron? Thankfully not a long chapter.

Just chiming in :) It is up to you. They are often left out, but I sometimes hear soloists include them. Whichever you prefer :thumbs:

Thank you, Kathrine. I have recorded a few chapters now with those keywords included, so I guess I will stay the course. But that is really good to know for any future books I may run across.

Chapter 7 is ready. It is strange and interesting to me that the ship and captain and crew were very good sailors, succeeding in getting all the way to the Oregon coast with no apparent problem, but then had such a hard time crossing the bar at the mouth of the Columbia river.
