And the above is up for your perusal.
thank you, April, brrr, I was getting cold just by listening to the description of the floating icebergs. :? Nicely read again, but this time I have a few notes for you:

> at 0:08: you forgot part of the full disclaimer here: please insert: “This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org

> at 0:25: also here, in the full disclaimer, you repeat the section number here again: please insert: “Section 95” and then the title of the story

> at 0:45-0:54: (p. 489) for most of the first sentence I hear a very disturbing background noise, maybe a big truck passing by ? Would you mind re-recording that part ? “It was at one o’clock in the morning of the 6th of August 1856, that after having been eleven days at sea, we came to an anchor in the silent haven of English Bay, Spitzbergen"

> at 1:30-1:39: (p. 489) the same noise is heard here... “shed an awful, mysterious lustre on glacier and mountain; no atom of vegetation gave token of the earth’s vitality

> at 10:10:-10:14: (p. 494) and again the noise: “preserved a record of the dead man’s name and age

The rest is totally fine. Only maybe re-record these 3 bits once more for a cleaner sound and the correct intro.

Thank you

Sonia
Brrrr indeed. I am happy to re-record those sections that you mentioned.

Here is Section 60

file duration: 10:08
thank you and congrats for your very first section ! :clap: lovely narration and everything clearly understandable, nicely paced and without any significant textual errors. :thumbs:

I feel almost bad now for giving you one single technical PL note, but here goes:

> at 0:00-0:04: at the beginning we recommend only 0.5-1 second of silence, otherwise it takes too long for the recording to start. People will wonder whether there is any audio at all ;) so all you need to do is cut 3 seconds from the beginning, and then reupload with the exact same file-name, then the old recording will be replaced by the new one.

Wonderful debut, hopefully more to come :)

Sonia
I have uploaded the new file with the change

yes thank you 8-) I'm happy you like the project and the recording process to continue :)

Oh and section 60 is perfectly PL ok now. Still a bit over 1 second silence at the beginning, but that's much better than the 4 you had before ;)

Congrats on your first official PL ok section. :birthday:

Hi Sonia,

Could I have an extension on my claims, please? :) Wasn't able to record at all for the past few weeks, but I'll be able to start again soon and can have these sections done in that time.

thank you for confirming, Tomas. Yes I know you have been busy. I will be giving some extensions tomorrow for all the readers who have asked for them. Another month, so nobody needs to be stressed.

(and please start with Hamlet, if possible, then I can edit already)

Section 27 - The music of ole bull
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume08_027_tappan_128kb.mp3
a beautiful poem, good choice, Alan. Thank you so much. Flawlessly recited again. :thumbs: PL ok.

I only heard quite a few plosives at intervals, maybe you had the microphone too close to your mouth or you bumped it by accident. :hmm: Not too disturbing, but maybe something to watch out for.

In any case, I liked it :)

Sonia
