Hello Mary Ann and Kathrinee,
I see that their are sections 18, 19 & 20 that are not assigned as of yet.
May I please have those 3 sections?
I have choosen 3 articles from Guttenberg's " The Art of Stage Dancing" by Ned Wayburn.
I would love to record them for this project.

Kathrine & MaryAnn,
Hello! Here are sections 18, 19 & 20
They are chapters from this link: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/27367/27367-h/27367-h.htm

I am not certain the length is appropriate as they are not large audio files. Please do let me know.
I also question if the above section numbers are supposed to be in the name of the recorded file. :hmm:

Here they are :

section 18 "a Bit of Ancient History" 6:34 length https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/coffeebreak012_ancienthistory_wayburn_128kb.mp3

section 19 "the Dance and the Drama" 3:1 length
https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/coffeebreak012_dancedrama_wayburn_128kb.mp3


section 20 " The Melting Pot of the Dance" 3:44 length

For the next coffeebreak section perhaps it can be about some articles in regards to different places (i.e. Major metropolis, rural, Alaska, Florida-geographical choices people have made)?
Merely a suggestion.

Thank you for pl approving my 3 posted sections. :clap: :D
Feels great to be the closing sections.

Ooo! 'Cities' might be a great idea! What do the rest of you think?

That could be interesting. Do you think stories set in cities (so a mystery in London or a romance in Venice), or do you think non-fiction stories about particular cities or aspects of life in a city (like tenement houses in New York or the stockyard in Chicago)?

Mary Ann,

That could be interesting. Do you think stories set in cities (so a mystery in London or a romance in Venice), or do you think non-fiction stories about particular cities or aspects of life in a city (like tenement houses in New York or the stockyard in Chicago)?

I was thinking aspects of lives in different places like non-fiction stories as you have mentioned above.

Though, the the thought of stories set in cities sounds captivating as well.

You haven't even listened to the last 3 sections yet? I hope that you like them.

Hey, comment on the city idea. Sounds good to me or I wouldn't have suggested it. I do wonder though just where the stories would come from.... :hmm:

good day to you,
April

I believe I would vote for the non-fiction cities theme. If the 15 minute time limit is going to be repeated I think it would be hard to have a complete mystery or romance story wrapped up in that short of a time.

Betty does make a valid point as 15 minutes doesn't seem like enough time for a full story.
