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.
oh I'm sorry to hear that. But yes, if you are not comfortable with the text, then I'll reopen the section. Thank you for notifying me immediately. :)

Hello there! I'm a newbie here, but as someone who has made good use of the listening side of LibriVox, I can't wait to help out! :D I would like to claim Section 10, "On finding a plot."

hello and welcome !!! We love enthusiasm and I'm happy to have you read in this project.

However before you start recording this longer chapter, I would highly recommend doing a one-minute test first to check your technical settings are all up to LV standard. You get all the details in your welcome mail and also here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

Please post the test in the Listeners Wanted forum: viewforum.php?f=21 and someone will check it and give you feedback or advice if needed.

As soon as the test is ok'ed, please post the results back here, and then I can assign you the sections officially. For that I would need to open a personal reader page for you, so please also tell me which reader name you want to go by. Can be the same as the forum name or your real name, or whatever.

For the moment, I will reserve the Section 10 for you for one month, to give you time to sort out the test. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

Good luck with the test ! :)

Chapter 6 uploaded
this was simply hi-la-ri-ous, Caro !!! Thank you so much. The whole beginning sounded like a how-to for budding Monthy Python sketches and then when the undertakers were singing in chorus I was split in half. :lol: Had a great chuckle all through and thank you for narrating it so lively and tongue-in-cheek. Wonderful chapter and totally PL ok.

Already looking forward to the next part. :)

Glad you liked chapter 6. Not sure a lawnmower is quite as funny... but anyway:

I did enjoy this one! The words of the young poet ring a bell right up to today. I guess young people don't change so much.. :lol:

indeed, a funny chapter. I loved the episode when they talk about the embalmer :lol: Our author seems to be mildly taken aback by all this neighbourhood.

Excellently narrated again, thank you so much. PL ok without a doubt.
