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.
Thank you.

And happy to PL a section if needed
Rich, have you decided on a Display Name? As you may have read, I am able to enter you into the system.

Hello @Kevins - richcoward is ok

Here is draft of chapter 1 - its 60 minutes, should it be split into smaller parts? any advice on how to divide it?

There was also a place where I made a mistake and I said "mistake" and went back, however I couldn't find it. I will try to go back and find it.

Let me know if there are any other issues

Really impressed with the book, seems that its been kind of forgotten? not many references of it online

Hey, thanks! I'll add you into the system now.

If you're confident enough in your recording, just let the 'mistake' slide. It will be found by our PLer, which might be me! (I don't remember.)

If you're intending to re-do parts, then we'll wait until your done before uploading the recording. Our aim is to PL just once and then follow up with, we hope, just one Spot PL.

As for the length, anything less than 70 minutes or so is fine, so don't worry about splitting the recording up.

Thanks again! And let me know what you'd like to do.

Wonderful!

And you're right about Kuprin's lack of renown today. I can't say I know much about him, to be honest. He spans, in style, the Russian 'masters' and the modernists.

I'll have to think about an English-speaking literary comparison.

Rich, please review your recording. I found and corrected where you said 'mistake.'

I believe it is now PL OK.
