:lol: well the names sounded all very convincing to me, at least really exotic. B minus is definitely not a fair number for this feat. :thumbs: Loved it. Excellent narration, Devorah, thank you so much. :9: Looking forward to the next sections. PL ok for this one.

Announcement to all: since I haven't heard back from the reader, I will proceed to orphan sections 82 and 83 now. If anybody is interested, now is your chance to read all about Eric the Red and Greenland.

Sounds like something I’d like to know about, so I will claim the two freed sections.

hi Jane and welcome to our project :9: and thank you so much for making us fully claimed again. The sections are yours :) Have fun.

You can read all the special instructions in the first two posts, concerning footnotes and intro and all.

Section 30 - Swedish Kings (time 2:18)
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume08_030_tappan_128kb.mp3
what an interesting concept that the king is elevated by the people and supported by them. Quite democratic in a way. Excellent little tid-bit, thank you so much, Alan. PL ok again.

If our kings were elevated by the people I am not sure if Prince Charles would ever get to be king. We might end up with Boris Johnson as king 😱

Announcement: as I haven't heard back from the reader, I will re-open Section 39 again. Who's interested in the doings of King Gustav of Sweden ?

Section 74 https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume8_074_tappan_128kb.mp3 (12:58). Thank you!
:shock: wow this was a tragic and sad story :( but beautifully narrated, Kathrine, thank you so much. :D And I loved the pronunciation on these rather difficult names, do you know any Icelandic by any chance ? It sounds quite genuine.

Totally PL ok. Thanks

My computer man was able to find (with help from Internet discussions) a way around the fact that the most recent Mac upgrade does not sync with Audacity.
