Thank you, Devorah! They are both PL OK!

Yes, that was odd on 6, but it sounds okay the way you read it. There isn't any other scan online that I can find, so we can't double check it :-)

Here's my contribution, section 19

https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/newwitness1921_19_chesterton_128kb.mp3
16:48

This is my first recording, so I understand if there is anything I should correct or do differently.

I'm not sure if I had a longer article than most, or if my pacing is too slow that it clocks in at about 2 minutes longer than any of the others...

Thanks
-Nathan

Thank you, Nathan! Great job ~ it is PL OK! :thumbs:

It could be one or the other or both, but 2 minutes give or take is not a big difference. I think your pacing was good. :-)

Hi, I've just uploaded Section 15: https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/newwitness1921_15_chesterton_128kb.mp3 (11m46s). This is my first "official" recording for LibriVox, so I welcome any and all feedback on how to be better :-) Thanks --bslreader

Thank you! You did a great job! :thumbs:

There is only one thing that needs to be corrected. At the very end this needs to be snipped out (We only read that part of the outro for the very last section of a project :-)) "End of G.K. Chesterton's Newspaper Columns: The New Witness - 1921, by G. K. Chesterton."

Thank you! It is now PL OK.

It is an easy enough mistake to make when you are first starting. :-)
