The updated files have been spot-checked and all OK, except for section 36: chapter 30; I noticed it ends "end of chapter 31" instead of 30. will it be an easy 'copy - paste' fix?

Thanks! Yes, an easy copy/paste fix. Corrected file uploading now.

There are two versions of the book. I took the chapter titles from one of them.

I think my edit on my post didn't go through. Sorry for the confusion! I realized after looking through the thread that there were two texts. I edited my question to say that the second version of the text had longer titles. Did you pick one of the items out of the list for each chapter? :)

How did you pronounce the name of Captain Faucon?

Edit: Well, I picked a pronunciation (FOW-con). If this is incorrect, please correct me. I'd like it to be consistent. :) Section 48 is uploading now.

I think it was fAW con (as in AWWW,) It probably doesn't matter THAT much. I had Dan-a for the first part of the book and DAY-na for the second part. It's one of those things that I'd go back and fix eventually. If I do find the time, should I edit the minutes thing or just leave it? How much trouble would it be to re upload? And I probably won't, because I'm trying to learn perfection is not achievable in this life.

Actually, that's pretty much how I pronounced Foucon - both the A sound like in "father."

I edited the "minutes" thing. See this post: viewtopic.php?p=889793#p889793

It isn't perfect, but better than "feet." :)

So once the last two sections are PL'd, I'll catalog this! :clap:

Great!!

A couple of PL notes:

Section 47 starts "Epilogue Part 1" instead of part 2,
and an optional edit at ~21:48 where the text "don andre" was read as "son andre"

Section 48 is PL OK, but the file needs renaming, because it has a date-stamp attached.

GAH! Great, thanks for the catches!

I'll fix these, then upload them directly to the validator in the cataloging process.

Oh, my gosh Trisha, you are amazing! I would like to read another book eventually, just not when I'm in school. Thank you so much for taking care of my pet.

I'm late to this thread, but Catchpenny, I gather you did the heavy lifting and then your schedule got away from you and TG dashed off the ending sections?

I seldom listen to group projects anymore because I count on the vocal consistency, but since TG is a well-known voice to me I went ahead to sample, and I am so glad I did! :thumbs:

I always preview a section before downloading the whole, to be sure I can absorb the reader's voice, and I SO hope you will do more recording when you are able. You have a light but steady touch on interpreting the text that is admirable, and a lovely voice to do it with.

:9:

Great job, Team!!! Go Librivox! :clap:
