oh but I don't want it different :9: Jay, don't ever again say that your reading doesn't cut the mustard. This narrative was excellently done. Nicely paced, some lines really tongue-in-cheek, especially the final paragraph where you really put some amusement in your voice over the poet. Made me smirk as well listening to it. Oh and the opening paragraph, you almost read it like poetry, the autumnal description was really soothing and romantic to listen to. It's absolutely perfect, and I'm glad you finally jumped on board and tried recording. Where have you been all these years ? :lol:

That said....I am sorry to say that I found a small thing in the beginning that you need to correct:

> at 0:25: "Autumn days" - after the intro, you need not repeat "chapter 9" but please say the title of the chapter, here "Autumn days". Otherwise you don't mention the title at all :? So no need to re-record the whole text, simply cut "chapter 9" and insert "Autumn days" and then all is perfect.

> optional: at the end you only have 4 seconds of silence. We should have a standard of 5 seconds. Now one second doesn't matter much, but I only mention it to make you aware of it, and so you won't have even less in your next recordings ;)

All in all, a wonderful first section for your debut. Have you seen you Reader page already ? https://librivox.org/reader/12074 your first project is now listed there. Hopefully many many more to come. 8-)

thank you

Hi Sonia,
Thanks for the kind words. I am glad you understood what I was trying for. I will keep trying to get better.
Here is the corrected file. Autumn Days instead of Chapter 9 and one second added to the silence.

wonderfully narrated, Anita, thank you so much :9: I could hear the amusement in your voice in some parts :lol: yes he is really a funny essay writer. I loved the episode with the businessmen trying each to sleep less than the other.

Absolutely flawless reading, can be marked PL ok immediately. :thumbs:

Thanks

Sonia

Here is chapter 4. You can PL it if you like, but I know I could have done better. I started too early and my voice had not awakened.
Kitty I will be more than happy to redo it if you think I should.

thank you ! I will PL it, but may not get around doing it today. I'm off to my parents' soon for the evening. But don't re-record anything, I am sure it will pass muster. A tired and husky voice can have its own charm, believe me. :9:

ok sorry for the delay, but I listened to it now and it absolutely passes muster :thumbs: and is PL ok. I have no knowledge in golfing but still this chapter was very funny. :lol: I guess the final 123 score must have been very bad.

Thank you, Jay !

Sonia,

Please rescind my request for section 17, “A corner for echoes.”

I apologize for not reading the entire script more carefully in advance but there is language in that section I’m not comfortable narrating.
