Hi Carolin,
I read/recorded and uploaded 4 of the 7 poems. Neighborhood getting too noisy to do more. (I can hear it through the windows and the walls. :lol:
They all passed the check software.

Section 19 -

The text reads:
We smoke, to fancy that we dream,
And drink, a moment's joy to prove,
And fain would love, and only seem
To love because we cannot love.
You forgot to add the "to love." Please tell me if you want to mark it PL OK, I'm marking it See PL Notes for now.
This id say has to be fixed. The line doesnt make sense otherwise :) thank you for noting it :)
Hi Shriya & Carolin,

Thank you Shriya for your proof listening. However in the case of Section 19, I respectfully must disagree with your findings. The section sounds perfect to me.

No words missing and no mistakes.

Please forgive me if I request a second opinion.

Thanks,
Bruce.

Thanks again, Shriya!

I'll claim section 0 too. Looks like that'll finish up the book!

Hi Carolin -

Here are sections 68-71 -

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/silhouettes_68_symons_128kb.mp3
Track length: 0:42

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/silhouettes_69_symons_128kb.mp3
Track length: 0:48

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/silhouettes_70_symons_128kb.mp3
Track length: 0:43

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/silhouettes_71_symons_128kb.mp3
Track length: 0:37

There's an error in section 71. The line reads, "Was still at mom a hope,". It should read, "Was still at morn a hope,". I'll report that to PG.
