Well! We've had the last three remaining sections posted, by three different readers, in the space of two and a half hours. How's that for timing?

Fantastic! This project is nearly complete! I think we will need some help with the PLing though, if anyone has a spare moment? Please "claim" a chapter to PL in this thread so we don't double up.

I've already started on Chapter 9.

Beth,

Thank you, the Preface is PL OK - MW updated.

The remaining 3 sections have passed the Checker tests for tech specs. I may have some time this weekend to help with their PL.

Salut! Here is Chapter 9:
https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/napoleon_09_johnston_128kb.mp3

Run time is 15:02. Please let me know if anything isn't as it shouldn't be. (I read everything, including notes and back matter, except for the map of course, but it's easy to cut out anything that isn't wanted.)

All the best,
~~Owen
Thanks Owen! Lovely reading, your pace and sound production are excellent! I don’t recognize your accent though, or the location you gave - where are you from?

Thanks so much! Glad you like the recording. :-) My accent is what happens when a kid from Chicagoland watches a lot of Monty Python, spends his formative years in Toronto, lives abroad with Australians and others, and listens to a lot of Irish podcasts. In Istanbul I met one other guy who had pretty much my exact same accent, and he was from north-central Ohio. Go figure! :-)

Ch 6 is PL OK! Thanks Jeffrey!

That’s the last chapter - we are ready for the catalogue! Take it away David!

(Please leave Elsie on the catalogue page as the DPL, she did most of the work.)

As a follow-on project from this one, I'm launching a history of the French Revolution, by the same author. See the orange link in my signature panel!
