Hello, here is section 6 for PL.

I've gone with an earnest style and sort-of-refined-ish version of my standard accent (New Zealand English), as I didn't want it to sound too affected. Guess that could make for slightly funny listening to anyone who is not used to the English of this part of the world?! You'll have to tell me, as I obviously can't hear it... :hmm:

Section 6 is PL OK :thumbs:
it doesn't sound so weird at all Annette. It's so sophisticated and so fine that I felt like I'm listening to an etiquette mentor, Lady Annette. :wink:

I am willing to read Section 2, entitled "Part 1: Chapter 1: Of Propriety of Conduct in Relation to Religious Duties."

This will be my first volunteer recorded reading for Librivox. I would like to be credited as Chessie Joy in the catalog.

Okay, you're all signed up; if you have a website, we can also a link to that in the catalog. Good luck with your first recording!
