Hello, just popping in for an update. Apologies for the delay.
I have been working on my section but got sidetracked with packing for an upcoming move. Will finish up asap.

:D

Great! That's a long one! It's in the MW but I will probably have to PL it next week.

(Only one story left! It would be interesting if every chapter/story were to be read by a different person!)

Thanks! There are just a couple of repeats which I think you had intended to remove in editing:

@4:47 "when that time should come"
@7:54 "and naturally, the maiden Griselda"

While you are handling the file, there is a rather long pause at 20:53 of about 3 seconds which would benefit from being closed up a bit.

Hi Elizabby, I'm new to Librivox and would love to read section 12 of the Chaucer Storybook. I studied some Chaucer texts in middle English so am drawn to this new version! Can I help?

Thanks,
Ho-Yun

Yes, you can read Chapter 12, but before you record for this project you need to submit your 1 minute test, as described in your welcome email or in the introductory forum.

I'll also need to know what name you would like for the catalogue - that's the bit when you say "Read by..." You can use your real name, or anything else, but once you've read it into the file it can't be changed!

Post back here if you need help!
