    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.

Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool.

Hi Carolin
Some confusion here. Section 3 is marked Ready for PL although I have not yet uploaded it, while section 48, this one, is still marked Assigned. :hmm:

P.S. Can I add 19 and 20 to my list?
