March is a cleaning month in Librivox. We are aupposed to finish as many projects as possible. You can go over the readers wanted: books forum and grab a few sections from books which look half claimed or less. Or else, look at the first post on the top of the book suggestions or new projects forum for books which need some assistance. I considered asking you if you want this project to be a part of the march challenge, but then figured out that, as it is so large, I would let you go your pace and have fun. But I would be happy to make it a part of the challenge if Devorah and Laura want.

Here is the thread tracking the progress we've all made this month:

viewtopic.php?f=24&t=74054

Stav, I will consider this a personal March challenge project, since I'm almost the only one left, but I'd rather not put it on the "official" list, because I think I would feel too much pressure to finish it that way!

Ok, what ever you want. I don't want you to feel pressured. I know it's big.

Hi Stav and Devorah--
I agree that it can be a personal challenge for us to finish up in March. I am now listening to Lynda's recordings and also have another project to PL, so Devorah, don't feel pressured. I will try to keep up in a timely manner whenever you do post your sections. Lora

Hi Lynda--
For Vol. 1, Section 22, Letter #28: At 11:11 there is a repetition of "she seemed satisfied" that should be omitted; at 11:39 there is also a repetition of "I had no doubt" that needs to be omitted; at 13:19 the word should be "appointment" instead of "apartment." Thanks--please let me know if you have any questions. Lora

I forgot to mention that I did include a footnote in section 33. I have skipped the few other footnotes I've seen so far, but I think this one greatly helps in understanding the opening line of this letter. Let me know, please, if you agree with how I included it, or if I should change anything.

Hi Lynda--Here are my notes for Vol. 3, Section 56, Letters #71-#74:
Letter #71--at 2:57, the word should be "affections" instead of "actions."
Letter #72--at 12:32 there is a repetition of "do I doubly thank him" and at 12:49 there is a repetition of "his approaches have long been..."
Letter #73--at 17:50 there is a repetition of "Col. Walter is no more."
Letter #74--PL Okay
Thank you again for your readings--it has been quite interesting in these latest letters!
Lora
