What a project!

Can I claim section 8, allez?

It'll take me a while, I'm a slow recorder. But it's wonderful.
Haha! You have two months, at least.

Welcome to this project! You're in for Section 8!

Very, very nice reading of a beautifully written story Kevin ... well done!

One very little picky note ... at the very end, where it should be said "End of (Section)", which is usually the name of the section, you said instead "End of Section Two"

I'll leave it to you whether you want to change that or not.

Thank you very much. I loved the story.

As for the close, the template is not all that specific, is it? I never seem to know what to do!

I'm going to mark the section as PL OK but will make the change tomorrow or soonest. I don't think there is a need to check on it, but you certainly may.

Thank you again!

It probably should be "End of section [number]". That is most typical, and helps the listener know they're listening in order when they hear "End of Section 2", followed by "Section 3 of..." in the next file.

Thank you! Will do.

Go. On. Vacation! (Though I hope you've assigned someone to watch me for feats of stupidity.)

Section 1 is yours!

And thank you for the PL offer. I'm fine right now, but may call for your assistance at a later time. Very nice of you to offer!

An admin must enter you in the system before I can assign you, but I have reserved your place. I think the admin will ask for your 'reader name.' I'm afraid I don't know how that works. I assume it can be given name or nearly anything else.

BCs can enter new readers (click the Add Reader button when you're logged into the MW). Only admins can change reader info once a reader has been added.
