Section 8:

I evened out the volume on the file using the compressor effect. Video instructions are here:

I added a bit of silence between the end of the text and the "end of chapter 8" and removed the "end of Gentle Measures..." part (that only goes at the end of the book)

And I added 5 seconds of silence at the end.

Reading itself was good! Just be aware of volume fluctuations where you perhaps stopped reading and then started again (some parts were much louder than others) and the end silence. :)

Marking PL OK.

Thanks for the PL on section 8, Tricia. I'll have 4 ready in the next few days.

Here's section 19 The Imagination of Children part I @ 15:25 and 14,1MB.

I'm editing section 20 so it'll be ready in a while.
Thanks for your patience :)

Thanks! I'll PL your section soon.

I PL'd 8 since it's a new reader, and the file was submitted about a month ago. I don't know if the reader is still around.

Section 19:

One minor edit - 4:10 - "analogous to that of the" - skip in audio on "to that", making it hard to understand.

Hello,

I would like to ready 09 and 10 which you entitle THE ART OF TRAINING and METHOD EXEMPLIFIED

BUT.....In the text they are called DELLA AND THE DOLLS and SYMPATHY-THE CHILD WITH THE PARENT

So, if I am assigned these I need a bit of clarification on what to call them when I read them.

Thanks,
Debra

Because some chapters are broken into parts 1 & 2 in this project, the section numbers here and chapter numbers in the book don't line up. Sections 9 and 10 are chapters 7 and 8 in the book.

Read them as section number 9 and 10; we're ignoring the chapter numbers and just going with the chapter titles. Follow the intro wording in the first post. :)
