Here is Section 4. Imagine, in a world where the salvation of your soul was so essential, the difficulty in having 2 Popes, let alone 3!

Hi TriciaG

Thanks for your kind comments and helpful advice on pausing ... which I will take to heart and ensure I follow going forward ... I think I could probably slow down a bit too.

Please forgive me if this is not reflected in this section... Section 17 which I recorded prior to seeing your message.

If it does not impinge too much on opportunities for others to participate, I would like to claim Sections 18 through 25 ... in order to follow through on Lorenzo to the end and
to ensure that I keep at it.

Cheers

Dick Bourgeois-Doyle

No worries. I was a fast reader when I started also, and had to learn to pause and allow for the reader to catch up. ;)

I'm fine with 18-25, as long as you can get them done within 2 months. I'll put your claim in!

I went ahead and shortened it, as it really did seem like a distractingly long pause.

I guess I had done it originally to clarify that this was no longer the quote from Suriano. I have a stubborn aversion to saying "quote" and "unquote" because it seems to break up the flow of the narrative and just kind of intrudes; but clearly, I need to rethink that, as this issue has come up before.

Section 17:

16:39 - "his beautiful picture, the Return of Spring" - I hear "the return of spine"?

Thanks! PL OK.

It's a fine line between enough of a pause for emphasis or closing a quote, and it being uncomfortably long. :lol:

Section 4:

21:37 - Repeat: "Again and again the panels were recast" repeated at 21:42

25:48 - "End of section" needs section number. :)

But it doesn't seem like the popes were essential to salvation, anyway. :lol:

12 PL OK!

I think the quote / unquote works well in those two spots. :)

Thanks, fixed. Re. popes, I think the people thought they were however. Difficult.

Agree strongly with you Tricia. Very fast reading really does detract from the experience (equally, very slow reading, or very long pauses). I have had to give up on some books in which the reader seemed to be on a race against time... and it just doesn't give you time to think let alone properly hear what is being said. I tried slowing the recording with an app, but that didn't work either as it made it sound weird. Not just Librivox, either, I sent back an Audible book because the reader raced so fast.
