Thanks, Sue!

And just an FYI to all, here's a nice article in Architectural Digest about the enduring legacy of this book:

(Putting this in the first post, too...)

TimothyFR, your chapter 2 was fun to listen to! Wharton really sounds off on her gripes--liquid guilding etc. Everything in your reading was fine, except for one very small repeat at 17:13.5 ("or some other"). Once that is corrected, your section will be pl ok.

One quick question! I read the note that says not to read the footnotes, but was wondering about references to "plates" in the text. Should these be included in the recording? (Most are parenthetical statements...one is in the actual text). Just wanted to clarify this before committing them to audio.

Cheers,
Mudlark :D

Hi Lyn, I just PL'd your chapter 8 on vestibules. Everything is ok except for one repeat at 3:04 ("marble, stone, and scagliola"). When you fix that, the section will be PL Ok.
