Also not sure why I misread the Custis name!
No worries! :) Happens to me, too. Sometimes a word looks like something else as I’m going along reading, and then come back to realize that I said a different word!

Mrs. Minot Chapter 7 is PL OK! :thumbs:

The only comment I have is that the audio got pretty quiet @ 2:31 “...mind and memory,” and if I hadn’t had the script in front of me, I might not have know what you were saying. You don’t have to do it over — just thought it might be good to know for the future. :)

Molly chapter 8 ready for pl:
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/jackandjill_08_molly.mp3 length is 3:43
There was a weird dull kind of scraping noise in the first half of the recording... I tried to noise reduct but I could only do so much without making my voice go all tinny. The only explanation I can think of as to the cause was that I was wearing headphones when I recorded, and maybe the zipper on my sweater was scraping against my headphones? I honestly have no idea. Hopefully it's still acceptable. :hmm:

Thank you! Since Molly is the last character needed to edit Chapter 8, I'm going to go ahead and PL this one.

PL notes for Molly Chapter 8:

- Repeat @ 0:38: "I'll play it is Siam, and this the house of a native, and I'm come to show the folks how to live nicely."
- Pauses and repeats starting @ 1:11: "... Guess I'll go and put my room to rights first, and pick up some clean clothes to put on him, if he is alive after I get through with him."

Yeah, I'll be honest -- I did find that scraping noise you mentioned to be distracting. But the reading is still clearly understandable and the noise isn't startlingly loud, so whether you do it over is just up to you. :)

Maybe the wire connected to your headphones was every now and then bumping into your recording device?? Hm. :hmm:

PL note for Gus Chapter 9:

- Mispronounced word @ 0:12: “The D.C. meets to-night, at Minot's, seven sharp. Co-ed, &c.,”

Try again with the "Minot" pronunciation, if you will. :) Here's the pronunciation that was decided upon:

PL notes for Molly Chapter 8
Thanks for the notes.
I did wonder if my headphone cord was doing that, but after I finished recording I tried to replicate the sound and it just wasn't right. :hmm: I think I'll do over the first half, at least- just where the noise is really distracting.
Sorry about that :|

Thanks, Twinkle! I can tweak that for you - no problem.

Here's Mrs. Minot, Chapter 21:
