Thanks.
Since you said this is a new recording, I've marked it Ready for PL, so Lomond can listen to it all
Greetings -

And Lomond did listen to it all and found it and Chapter 90 both well read and definitely PL OK.

I'll be listening for more from you, AstridW.

Chapters 49, 59, and 67 were all read in ellies' pleasant and easy-to-listen-to style and have been marked as PL OK in the MW.

Did you find Chapter 67 just a bit weird?

Hi, this is my recording for

107 Lest I forget

A very good reading for a newbie. PL OK. A bit soft at times, you might want to move just a bit closer to the mic.

Welcome to the wacky and wonderful world of LibriVox, Helena.

Thanks,

This chapter and Chapters 48 and 97 easily meet the standard we have come to expect from mleigh. Definitely PL OK.

Chapter 48 was one of the sweeter poems in the book.

Paul, I think this is the first time I have listened to any of your offerings. I hope it is not the last. Just simply spot-on reading. PL OK.

Chapter 66 and Chapter 23 are now listed as PL OK.

I like the way you follow the punctuation of the poem. Greatly adds to the listenability.

A couple of notes on Chapter 70:

The audio level is still just a bit low and should be boosted at least 1 dB.

There is a pause at 01:57 with a little bit of background noise that would sound better if it were shortened by about a second or a little more.

Otherwise, PL OK.

Carling, thanks for reading what I think is one of the best poems in this collection.

The URL for Chapter 101 has fled the MW and is currently incognito somewhere in LV land.
