Nemo,
Sections 9 and 10 are both PL OK. It's great to hear you again. It seems ages since I PLed for you.

Leni,
I can't DPL but I had some free time (ok, truth is I was using you to procrastinate). :wink: I'll keep you on my list and help out whenever I can until you get a DPL.

I would like to do #43 and #47, if that would be ok.

Hello,

May I claim Section 2: Selected excerpts from Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin?

I want my reader name to appear as Horner94.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,
Chad

Chad, you were already added to our database, since you have read for other projects before. So, in your reader page, you are already credited as ChadH94. Would you like that changed, is that what you mean?

Hi,
Sorry, in that case I am happy as things are then. No need to change anything.
Apologises for the inconvenience.


Kind regards,

Leni, if you don't mind, I jumped in and PL'd one piece (section 18).

Section 18 is ready for PL (duration 40:57).

Bruce, this was pure pleasure to listen to, every bit. There were no errors at all, except (and this is not a PL note) that I *think* Cheyne is pronounced "Chay-nee," which I mention in case it comes up again and is helpful.

It was just a great reading of a fascinating piece of writing, and I really enjoyed how much quiet nuance you brought to it. (I wonder if Coriolanus and Carlyle would've got on well.)

So -- PL OK :thumbs:

Thanks, Eva, for your listening to and comments on section 18. And yes, you're right about the pronunciation of "Cheyne." I've certainly heard it pronounced the other way — "chain" — and I've even been to Carlyle's house in Cheyne Row, but the Hidden London website, which I take to be authoritative, confirms that it should be "chainee," as you say. Thanks again!.

Bruce
