A short little trivia, for those who are interested.

On November 21, 2017 (so exactly one year ago), I started the first book in this World's Story series. And now, 12 months later we have 3 finished books in our archive, a fourth is almost as good as finished, and this 5th book is nearly fully claimed too. :9:

I personally think, this group is doing awesome work ! Thank you all for your continued interest and dedication to this project. :thumbs:

That is indeed a noteworthy milestone, Sonia! :clap:

Could I contribute Section 122 to this volume?

I uploaded sec 15 "The rule of Rienzi (1347-1354), by Edward Bulwer-Lytton"

Just a note: today he is better known as "Cola di Rienzo". I think "Rienzi" was a medieval form.

Sonia,
This statement is in regard to section 35. A tear was all that was asked for, no more. I agree with your statement it was a beautifully sad poem.

Now onto section 34. It did indeed sound like Indian so now it is Italian. Have a listen, I think you will agree with me.

Here are 2 more and please do let me know if there are any corrections that I missed.
oh what a beautifully sad poem, I had to sob all the way through here. :cry: it was read with great sensitivity too, April, thank you very much.

Section 35 is already PL ok.

For Section 34, I found a small error ;)

> at 4:14: (p. 130) “Napoleon now agreed to help the Italians against Austria.” – I think you say “Indians” here instead of “Italians” :hmm:

The rest was fine. Great job on the Italian names too. :thumbs:

Thanks

Sonia

and here is another famous picture annotated for you to listen to, Jim, whenever you have time :) The famous phrase "bell, book and candle" has been depicted in the centre of the painting. Wikipedia even shows the same painting in their explanation of the excommunication process: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell,_book,_and_candle
This shows how powerful the Church was even over kings. :shock:

I think that these projects are popular because they provide a lot of short but varied and interesting texts for people to record. Many thanks to Sonia for providing these for us. :clap:

thank you, Alan, and yes, that was exactly the reason that attracted me to these books when I found them :9: the short and varied topics. And I'm happy so many others share my taste.
