ok I finished faster than expected so I had time to PL your section after all. :) excellent narration, I loved to listen to your voice, very fluent and flawless reading. Textually all ok. I only have one small correction to add:

> at 0:02: "Section 82..." you say Section 83 :hmm:
another thing: over two seconds in the beginning feels too long to start with the intro :? we actually recommend 0.5-1 second, could you trim it a bit please ?

> at 10:40: "End of Section 82" - here again you say 83

also please remember to change the file name number to 082 before reuploading.

Thank you :)

Oh, silly me! Those are really basic bloopers, sorry will fix! I was doing both at once and obviously got muddled and I know it makes it hard at the PL end too. Red faced :?
Thanks for the nice feedback on the reading. I enjoyed reading these and would certainly happily read more in this series. I had to just have a stab at some of the names though!

thank you, Jane, the two corrections have been excellently made, but..... :oops:

> at 0:32: soooo sorry, I forgot we had a section 82 here as well. That one still remains unchanged. Sorry I didn't mention it before, I only just realized now

Hi Sonia!

Don't think I've forgotten about your project one bit. :wink: I'd still like to record my parts; however, I may need an extra week to do so, if you'll allow it. :oops: Should have some recording time to get it all done. :)

No problem, fixed and re-uploaded. No change to length. My fault, I remembered there would be another later in the intro, and then it went right out of my mind again. Sorry for all the trouble. I simply misread the MW and thought I was doing 83 and 84, rather than 82 and 83.

:lol: just in time, ey ;) thank you so much, Devorah. I just listened to the shorter section, wow, gave me goosebumps. It always creeps me out to hear reports where people vannish without a trace. :? Naturally I checked online and at least here the mystery was solved. After 30 years they found the remains of the failed Andrée expedition. You can read about their fate here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9e%27s_Arctic_balloon_expedition
Interesting that they documented it well with many photographs.

This section is already PL ok and I'll get to the longer one soon.

thank you for letting me know, Tomas. I would love to have you record the sections, so if you could do them in an extended deadline period, that would be great. I'll give you two more weeks, then you can hopefully do it without stress. Till 2nd November then :)

Good luck with quiet time !

and Olaf's stories were also all PL ok and excellently narrated. :thumbs: Great job, Devorah, well worth the wait. Thank you so much.

Wow, we're quite nearing the end here. I need to think about launching the next book soon. Probably by mid November. As a short teaser I can announce already that we will go to the British Isle now. 8-)

Glad we got 82 to bed finally. :lol:

Here is Section 83, which I promise has that correct number in its filename and all 3 places in the actual recording! (Still has 84 in a tag, but I figure it will get wiped out in cataloguing, so left it)
