I have just finished recording my section. You should have it within a week or so. Some very good stuff, here.

Incidentally, I claimed my section (Death to the Invalid), on the morning after a friend of mine had died, although I didn't know that until some hours later. I will be attending his funeral tomorrow. So this was especially powerful. During this sentence in particular, I was so overcome by emotion that I had to stop and take a few deep breaths before continuing:
The affections cannot exist without their objects; and our congenial friends--the brethren of our souls--therefore survive as surely as God survives.

I will think about it. I do like it a lot. But I have a lot of other things to record just now, so I'm trying to work my way through the list. If I am able to get my recording queue down to a manageable level, I will check in again.

Thank you so much. How long is section 4? Would you like to continue with section 2 (or any other section from this book)?

Hey, just wanted y’all to know that my computer crashed during the editing process and I had to set up my laptop for re-recording. I’m recording today but because I live by the airport, it’s the editing that takes the longest but hope to have it finished ASAP. If I hadn’t gotten the crazy idea to re-record everything using an English accent (which I learned for this reading since Harriet Martineau is English) I should’ve had this done over a month ago. I apologize for any delay and if my English accent sucks, I’ll Be happy to re-record it in my regular voice. Just invested so much time with the accent I figured I had to commit. :)
I’m reading sections 6 & 7 btw.
Thanks,
Suzie
