Section 6 - Bellona, in the first sentence you said "32 degrees 15 something North" That something is 'minutes.' Should be "32 degrees 15 minutes north and 64 degrees 50 minutes west." Otherwise PL OK

Section 8 - At the end, say "END OF Gifts, by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Read by ..." Also, reduce silence at the end of the recording from 12 seconds to 5 seconds. Also, ID3 tags need to be changed. Otherwise PL OK

Sections 9, 10, 14, 15 - PL OK

Section 11 - Repeat at 7:17 - ID3 tags are wrong - I'm not sure how we want to go about this, but I'll post the info I found and let the powers that be make the tough decisions... There are a lot of mispronunciations and pregnant pauses in this reading. Does this fall under 'listener choice' or 'accents' or should they be changed? I'm not sure, can someone else maybe give this a listen?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Wendel. Pauses that are overly long do fall under standard PLing, but generally pronunciation does not. Personally I don't mind if PLer's point out where a word was misread especially if it changes the meaning of the text, but we do have to be careful since a wide range of pronunciation can be acceptable depending on the location of the reader. Your discretion in not posting a long list of corrections is appreciated. Perhaps if you kept notes for this section, you could send them to me by PM and I can review them and see what I think before sharing them with the reader.

Thanks :)

Thanks for the clarity, WT, I just couldn't remember what those symbols meant ;)
