Hi Leni
Apologies but I think I will give up section 3. Having read the text more thoroughly I realise that it is a bigger task than I usually take on. For various reasons, mainly health, I limit my online work to a couple of shortish sessions a day. This would take me too long.
I am sure you will find another reader soon.

It's ok, Alan! Thanks for letting us know.

Chapter 6 here:

https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/georgics_06_virgil_128kb.mp3

Hope it's OK, I made a number of mistakes and had to do a lot of repairs; one section in the middle I patched in still sounds different from the rest in spite of a lot of fiddling and adjustment. :(

Time: 14.45 approx.

Thanks Lucy! Sometimes it is quite impossible to get the same background noise, distance from the microphone and so many other variables that go into the recording. But usually if it is understandable, it is not that bad. :)

It sounds fine to me! I can hardly tell a difference. The only issue I could find (and I am very nit-picky!) is that there are 6.5 seconds of silence instead of 5 at the end of the file. If you could edit and re-upload that would be great. Thank you, Lucy!

Had so much fun recording this!! Sorry for the delay. I had a bit of an issue pronouncing some of the names which I could't find the pronunciation for online so in case you need me to redo them please tell me.
Thank you so much!!!!!!!!
