Oh, I see a problem with the naming convention. If I save it with the number 11, for example, by the time I upload it I could be overwriting another reader's file. For right now, as I work on it, I'll save using 20, and adjust it just before I send it in. Do you have a better suggestion?

Just back in from mowing the yard! If I didn't fear my neighbors' wrath, I would let it all grow!

I'll reserve No. 12 for you!

I can help you with this, Kevin. As you say, the template doesn't really satisfy the requirements of a collection like this, but it's a starting point. Would you want it something like a Coffee Break Collection, only with longer pieces (Coffee Breaks are 15 minutes or less)?
Shall I add a few more sections to the collection?

Will do.

I also have some new authors' name for you, but I have to double check so I give you a complete list.

Chad, I'm going to mark this as needing a bit of editing and then a Spot PL, if you don't protest. I think the additional pronunciation of the place names, as indicated in the text (I'm aware) are unnecessary and a bit disorienting. (These occur around 3:50 and 5:50 if I got that right.)
E agora, José?
