I requested Chapters 17, 18, and 19, and got a response that I was good to go on those. It looks like they are now assigned to other people. Was I just too late in responding? Or did my request kind of get lost in all the other submissions?
Just sent you a PM.
I didn't see you in the catalog when your request came in, and when I didn't hear from you right away, I did accept other claims for these. I guess I should have held these longer, so I'm really sorry. Please see my PM.

Take care,

It is possible that since this has not shown up in the MW yet it may have been overlooked?

Just checking!

Thanks!

Greg
Yeah, probably . . . .
Gottcha!

PL notes section 23

0:20 repeat intro ("Certain personal matters ...")
1:34 weissnichtwo - this is a joke in German, weiss nicht wo, meaning "don't know where". Up to you if you want to change the pronunciation.
8:31 the words "in the wide firmament of face" are omitted
9:09 I hear "Why not, then" where the text reads "Why, then"
End of section: repeat of "Chapter 23", and please include 5 seconds of silence at the end. :)

Otherwise, nicely read, and with these changes, it will make for an excellent section! :thumbs:
Foon - Please correct my pronunciation!

Readers needed:
Biscuits and Bills (One-Act Comedy)
Arabian Nights (Vol. 9)

PL notes section 28

0:01 should be "Chapter 28" instead of "Chapter 1"
End of recording: please make sure you have 5 seconds of ending silence, I can't check right now since I'm PLing on my phone, but it seems like 2 or 3

Excellent reading otherwise :thumbs:

Beautiful reading! It was a pleasure to listen to! :9:

I have no notes on the reading itself, however, the volume checked in at 85.5dB. This is just outside of the accepted range of 86-92dB. Could you amplify the recording and reupload?
