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.

Today is Canada Day 2021 and I wanted to have some poems to record so I found these Canadian poems to record - how appropriate!

I have asked Helen to DPL for me.

Hello Lynda

I can step in as DPL if you wish. I love poems, so it will be a treat to listen to you :)

I already Spot PLed the first two and can mark those sections PL ok. Will continue with the next ones now. I hope you are doing well and are still interested in continuing.

That would be awesome! Thanks Kitty!

I am still on vacation in Spain and starting to record again. I had a traumatic experience with my headphones and they broke (husband stepped on them). I repaired them with chopsticks and then the maid in a hotel thought they were garbage and threw them out so I could not record anymore! Just got new headphones in Valencia and hoping to give them a spin in the next few days...
