Hi,
I've just finished reading chapter 14 of Cowboy Life and here's the link: https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/cowboylife_14_benton_128kb.mp3
Duration 5:32.
Thanks,
Kim Gibbs
Really nice, Kim!

I'm just asking for a little attention to the opening and closing silences. At the end, the silence should be just five seconds and you have nearly seven, and there is some sound during the last two. I think if you trim it down, you'll be okay, but if you come up short after cutting out the noise, just copy and paste some of the silence. While you're at it, there is a mouse click in the opening silence that you could cut out. I would post a note for that alone, but it is easy to correct. This will be something to check in future recordings.

So, overall a very excellent recording :clap:
I will assign you Section 13, with pleasure.

Hi Larry,
I’d love to read section 23, if I may.

(Edit, 21 Feb 2018: that’s okay, I’ll release the claim)

Hi Larry,

I took a listen to these. Both are PL OK!

Nice job on the dedication & preface. :clap:
