I'm bumping this just to see if there is any interest in a collection like this one. (I always found travel literature to be fascinating. Especially the work of Jan Morris, but of course her work is still out of our reach here.)

Perhaps I should just fold this reading into the more general short non-fiction category? (Hahah! There is one, right?)

Give it time. Sometimes it takes a couple of weeks to catch people's imagination (especially when they have to hunt down their own texts).
Of course, you could incorporate it if you wish, but I wouldn't yet 8-) viewtopic.php?f=19&t=74648

Question:

I am preparing a section for submission to this collection. I have noticed that in the file naming you have a section number.
Usually, in collections of this kind that is not the normal way a file is named. We usually put the author's name and/or our initials.
If I am the next to submit would you want the #2 as that is the next opening in the MW? Often, I have noticed the when cataloguing the finished collection the MC changes the order of the submissions so mine may not stay #2. Could you clarify please...

Thank you.

BettyB

I'm so pleased that you will be adding to this collection. I can't wait until I hear what you have for us.

As for cataloging and all of that, I wish I had more experience with this. My advice, short of Lynnet stepping in, is to follow the directions as listed and we might assume that any necessary changes, if any at all, could be made by someone 'behind the scenes.'

Betty is right in that is how I usually set up collections (and possibly others do too)… and the reason for re-ordering at cataloguing is that the system puts the files in alphabetical order.
However, I omitted to give you that instruction (apparently I'm human after all :oops: ), so having readers pre-claim a section and using the section number works fine and means I won't have to re-order them, as the system can count 8-). Just enter Betty in as the reader for section 2, then you can add all the other info when she submits her file. And the next reader will know they need to submit section 3, etc.

Such a nice reading. And a good, interesting selection, too.

I have marked the piece as PL OK, though there is one word you may wish to correct. At 12:08 you read 'thousands' when the word is 'hundreds.'

Thank you so much for the addition!
