Great! Hopefully I will get to it today, if not then tomorrow. Today is a work day for me, but I'm sure I can squeeze out 13 mins! ;)

Section 6 is PL OK! Lovely reading to kick off this project!

I don't really think it is necessary to make the moral explicit - it is pretty clear from the story!

No Miller's tale? Well in that case I would like to do section 9, Clerk's tale.

Sorry everyone, didn't realise the email notifications were down - thanks for those claims, I'll put them all in the MW.

Please note that as I expect this project to move fairly quickly and the sections are all short (apart from Ch 2), I do not plan to give any extensions. So please only claim what you can read within the 2 month time limit.

Here's the Preface! I can't PL my own work, so Kitty or anyone else can take a listen and let me know if it is OK.

Right, Beth, the Preface is PL ok and a great intro section for this book. :9:

And I agree with Mrs Tappan: compared to Beowulf, Chaucer is not difficult to read, even in the original. :lol: He had quite an easy-going style and Middle English is much closer to Modern English than Old English, which is completely different in grammar, syntax and vocabulary.
