Sarah,

Section 56 is now uploaded but don't start relaxing because I underestimated and there are still 30,000 words (7 or 8 Sections) to go.

Thank you for your support over all these months. Your English must be astonishly good, because the syntax and vocabulary have been 200 - 300 years old. :clap:

Hello Barbara,

Sections 55 and 56 are PL OK ! I'm sorry it took so long, I went to London for a while and came back quite tired. :lol:

Thank you for the compliment, it's really nice of you. I have been studying English literature for quite a while now, so I suppose it helps. I am quite happy I joined you on this project. There are plenty of things to be learnt from this biography of Samuel Johnson, and your reading is so good it makes listening a delight.

Good luck on recording the last sections, the end is near... keep it up !
Sarah

Hi Barbara,

Section 60 is PL OK !

Actually, I thought this was the very last one. But since you have section 61 and the appendices coming up, you need to add a couple of sections to this project. At the moment you have "only" 60 sections. Do you know how to do add some more?

Oh yes, thanks Sarah. I was only guessing when I set up the Magic Window so first I did some research on adding sections to a solo project (I didn't want my hair to fall out from the stress of keeping to a predetermined number of sections).

Appendix A will be about an hour's worth of listening but the other appendices are nice and short.

So here is Section 61, the last of the actual text:
