Hi! May I take section 18? This is my first reading! (Yes, I have done the one minute test.)
You certainly can. Section assigned.
Victory! Here's section 18:

Hi!

I'm writing with my PL (prooflisten) notes for your recording!
By the way, I think your reading is excellent! I definitely found it very clear! So well done! :)

So here are my PL notes:

00:28 – I hear “Chapter 25” – it should be “Chapter 15”. (I know this is a roman numeral, so the confusion is understandable!)

38:59 – (I hope it’s OK for me to say this, as it doesn’t involve rerecording!) I see the silence here is 4.8 seconds long; that is, close to 5 seconds, which is the standard length of silence left at the end of recordings. So maybe, would you mind reducing it a bit? (That way, listeners will not think that’s the end of the recording yet!)

42:18 – I hear a minor stumble (or repeat of just one word): “and… and was held” (this occurs at the very last sentence!).

At the end of the recording – here, please could you reduce the silence to about 5 seconds (I see it’s 10 seconds long)?


Well, as I said, good job! :)

Great!
I have downloaded the recording for Section 19, and I hope to be giving PL notes (if any!) very soon—at the latest by next weekend, DV! :)

Hi again!
I just checked for those small things, and Section 18 is now PL OK! :)

Well done, Kimberly!

Hi, Leni!

I just sent the final OK, about Section 18! :)

I thought I'd let you know that for this last recording, what I checked was not the link in the magic window, as I believe that was still the first version. So I just used the link that Kimberly provided in her own second message---the one for her second version. If this helps, the duration for that final file is 42:32.

Well done everyone! :)
