Comments welcome!

My way of recording is to edit as I go. If I fluff up, I immediately stop and over-record a new version. I haven't even listened to these all the way through, so they might be horrendous.

Oooh Yay :)

I've had this one flagged since I found it.

I know what I'm going to listen to tonight when I sit down with my knitting :) I won't have the text up so won't really be proof listening, but will let you know if I hear anything that sounds like it needs fixing.

You don't really need to be reading the text to proof listen.

Absolutely -- IME, you don't even need to be paying attention to proof listen, the occasional gaf / misedit jumps at you whether or not you're listening hard.

Exactly :) Which is why I could listen today while I was working on my wedding dress. Just had to turn it off when I was sewing 'cause it's too loud.

Alex, I'll start running these through Listeners Wanted for a final proof-listen. Thanks for your hard work =)

here are a couple of notes from proof-listening:
Chapters 3-4:

- there's a slightly long pause (about 3 sec) at 1:19
- needs a few seconds of silence at the end

Nice job reading!
Chapter 23
Hi,
It sounds good! Two little things:
At 12:33 there is a Blip, followed by a word out of place (): "The room was full of a faint scent of benzoline, (I s...) used, I
suppose..."

When listening with RealPlayer, your name at the end of the recording is cutt off: This can be fixed by editing in a few seconds of silence at the end of the recording.

I just finished my final proof-listening of chapters 18 - 22 and here's what I found. I'm new at this so please bear with me if I'm noting things that I shouldn't be. Oh, and Alex, you have a fantastic voice for reading!

Chapters 18 - 20 were prefect. They sounded great!

Chapter 21:

At 1:06 the reader said "draper street" where it should be "draper shop"

But hardly had I emerged upon Great Portland Street, however (my lodging was close to the big draper's shop there),

At 6:56 there is a slight stumble in the phrase "over into the portico"

I swung myself over into the portico of the next house.

At 8:34 there is a long pause that seems a bit awkward in the middle of a sentence

my tonsils were painful from the cabman's fingers, and the skin of my neck had been scratched by his nails

Chapter 22:

At 16:53 the reader said what sounds like "sniffing to the rituals" whereas the text reads "sniffing through the rituals".

The reader ends the chapter saying "end of chapter 2"
