These still show open. :)

hi JT and welcome to the World Story project :) Yes I can assign you these three sections, I hope you have fun.

Since this is the first time you participate in this series, please read the first two posts carefully, you'll find some special rules for the intro disclaimer, on how to say the title, how to read the footnotes, etc.

If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

Thank you for your understanding. I too was in tears at the end.

Though I am relenquishing section 107. Not a pleasant ending & I do not wish to revisit it as I would to edit it.
I understand you. I have read this specific poem for another project already and I was completely in tears at the end of it. :cry: I will unassign you if it's too hard for you.

@Jim: thanks for your section, though I guess I will only PL tomorrow. But looking forward to some funny listen.

Here is Section 99--hilarious!:
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_099_tappan_128kb.mp3
I first suspected those two were ghosts :shock: the whole story had a bit of a creepy atmosphere. But in the end it was all perfectly harmless. Nice narration :9:

Just found a small spot to edit:

> at 11:25: (p. 516) "in the town-land" is repeated here after the sentence, can be cut

thanks, Jim :)

another interesting section, Piotrek, thank you so much. King James seems to have been a good monarch.

On the whole a great reading, but I found two small notes to mention:

> at 3:02: (p. 331) "was ever afterwards called the king of Kippen": repeat "was" can be cut once

> at 7:02: (p. 334) "a long and wide Highland shirt" – you say "skirt", which is a different item of clothing ;)

thanks

Sonia

:shock: I think I never heard your pre-coffee voice before. Quite a deeper key you've got there. We could make good use of this if ever you play the villain again. Scary...

And the poem is brilliantly narrated :thumbs: thank you so much. Totally PL ok. I saw the whole thing like a movie unfurling before me.

Praise the author - that was a really great poem. Hard to believe that it read like that all the way from 1263! I'd suspect some modern editing, but there were a couple of things that no longer rhyme the way we pronounce things now.

(I'd use the pre-coffee growlly voice to record more often but I really need my (sadly, only decaf allowed these days) fix before too long each day. This poem was just the right length.)

Thanks, Todd
