Oke, I already listened to chapter 1.
At 3minutes 37 sec: Read " I ask you, have you both gone mad" in text:"I ask you again, have you both gone mad".
You can leave as it is, it doesn't change the context.

At 11 minutes 52 sec there is a long pause of 7 or 8 sec.

Chapter 2.

At 5 minutes 07 sec a little stumble "his 111 new patients" I do not know if you have to change it.

At 7minutes 07 sec read: "the children run to miss Matthews" in text: "The children run to meet miss Matthews".

At 15 minutes 38 sec: read: "She was discovered eleven years ago on the step" in text: "She was discovered eleven years ago on the bottom step".

Chapter 3.

At 5 minutes 11 sec read: "His mother was a M'Lachlan" in text: " His Grandmother was a M'Lachlan.

At 9 minutes 35 sec read: "put up some nice" in text: "put up instead some nice".


The reading errors are all minor . :D nice reading :D

It is minor.

Chapter 7. OKE.

Chapter 8. At 19 minutes 47 sec, read: "Written Friday", in text: "Written friday night".

Thank you Anna! Some of these are small enough that we'll likely leave them as is, but thank you for letting us know.... I'll see what we can do about the more significant ones =)

Betsie: I have sent you part 21 with yousendit, and here's the link:

http://www.yousendit.com/transfer.php?action=download&ufid=7F9B8F7F594D40A5

I'd also like to do part 16 if it's still unclaimed. I have a bit of a "to do" pile built up after all that time I spent doing only the anniversary thing. So i might not be able to do it super fast. But if that's ok with you, I'd like to claim the part just the same :)

Now all I need to do is figure out how to say the parts where she writes in a "scottish accent" without sounding totally lame. I already butchered it in part 21, I'm sure.

Supposedly the folks on my father's father's side of the gene pool were of Scottish descent, but all I really inherited from his side of the family is his hair...which oddly enough does me absolutely no good in figuring out how to pronounce this stuff. :roll:

Thank you Maddie! I'll sign you up for part 16... take your time, the target date is flexible too =)

As for speaking with the Scottish accent... my best advice is: Say it with confidence and it'll be fine =)

(Thanks again for all of your hard work on the Anniversary special! It turned out excellent!)

That's quite alright... but if you don't hear from your MC when you email files to them, best to double check.... yousendit works really well, when it works ;)

Thanks again! Feel free to read more of this book if you wish =)
