if this our performance doth in aught fall short of promise, blame not our good intent, but our unperfect wit."

Thanks, Lynda. I'm truly happy to make PLing a priority whenever possible.

Section 9 is now PL Ok.
Ohhh, I suspect that yours is not an entirely uncommon mistake; the more recordings we complete, there more chance there is of omitting exactly as you have here. *Smile*

Best,
~Angelique

ReaslisticSpeakers, Section 12 has a very nice flow; it's crisp and clear.
Thank you for including the footnote.

The only note I have is that at 10.46
Wandering "wind" (as in a breeze) is pronounced as "wind" (to twist).
As this changes the meaning of the sentence, please correct.

Otherwise, your reading contributes greatly to the book!

Regards,
~Angelique

Sections 12 and 45 are PL Ok.

Again, impressive pronunciations and a great reading of a lovely, deeply sad chapter.

I look forward to hearing more!

Section 49 is PL OK!
This story made me laugh; it seems that author and regional conflict are universal! *Smile*

I thought the vocal tension in the "Let Me In!" door scene was well done and the chanting was ... Chilling!
*wink*

Thanks!
