No problem. I'm in the process of moving myself, but I think I should be able to keep up with PLing. I will let you know if that changes though.

Hi Guys! I just wanted to check in , since it has been awhile. Wanted to let you know that I'm still very interested in this project, but it's taking me much longer than expected. I'm pregnant--yay! But I haven't been feeling very well lately, and so haven't been recording. I hope to get back into the swing of things soon, but it is unlikely that I'll finish the reading by January 1. I hope that's ok? Thanks for understanding!

Just checking in to let you know I haven't forgotten about this project. Still on the back burner, though, what with holidays and baby preparations!

All the best,
Jean

Hi! I had the baby and she is wonderful! She is also VERY time consuming. As a big fan of Russian history, I was set on making this a solo project, but at this point, I think we should open it up to other readers. I would still like to do chapters 19-21, as Peter I is my absolute favorite. I hope this is okay?

All the best,
Jean

congratulations! i am glad to hear you are both doing well!

opening up the project for other readers is not a problem. were you planning to coordinate it yourself or do you need help with that?

I would love help with the coordination--I've never done that before.

As a beginner of Russian, I would simply LOVE to take on the job if it's no problem with you or Jean. :)
