Hi Len,

All three are PL OK! And I liked the accents!

I should point out the file names aren't quite right (they should have _128kb on the end), but it's not something you need to fix (Phil can do it).

Oh, and Phil, I asked before, but I'm not sure you saw, but you need to change

Code: Select all

 itcanbedone_###_various_128kb.mp3 [b](all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. itcanbedone_001_various.mp3)
in the first post to

Code: Select all

 itcanbedone_###_various_128kb.mp3 [b](all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. itcanbedone_001_various_128kb.mp3)
I think it's confusing people.

Thank you Jordan. I have fixed the first post so it has the correct information. I will fix those already submitted at validation.

Here is Section 106: "A Good Name," by William Shakespeare.

https://librivox.org/uploads/philchenevert/itcanbedone_106_various_128kb.mp3
Duration: 1:41

This is a good example of something that Shakespeare loved to do--he placed statements of some of the highest principles in the mouths of characters whose actions displayed those principles the least. This speech is spoken by one of the most despicable figures in all literature: Iago in the tragedy of Othello.
