Ok, sorry this took so long! I had to redo a bunch because I recorded when I had a cold... and I think that threw the sound balance off :( but hopefully it will still be ok!

Section 29 [24:49]
https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/dreamredchamber2_29_cao_128kb.mp3

Typo fixes:
[3:50] "But in the midst of her narration, a servant, at lady Feng's instance" changed to
"But in the midst of her narration, a servant, at lady Feng's insistence"

[8:50] "The moment, therefore, the report fell on her car" changed to
"The moment, therefore, the report fell on her ear"

[20:28] "Baoyu continued on pins on needles and on the tiptoe of expectation." changed to
"Baoyu continued on pins and needles and on the tiptoe of expectation."
- Mara

CC of any kind, from any source, is welcome and encouraged. I am brand new to this and hardly know what I am doing, but I'm very eager to learn!

This is section 35 for PL please:
https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/dreamredchamber2_35_cao_128kb.mp3 [29:21]

notes:
1. From 1:29 to 1:43, the sentence is changed to: "...and our collection of books even included:...and we, on our part...etc", because otherwise, the rest of the paragraph would be unintelligible. (It's also seemed to be what the author meant);
2. @2:08, "but" to replace "and", to make the meaning of the sentence clearer;
3. @29:01, "her" inserted;
4. @29:06, "areas" seemed to be a typo of "arrears";
5. @29:09 "nest" changed to "next"

Also, I would like to claim sections 36 and 37.
Thanks.

Two more sections for you, thank you David! :D

And I have orphaned two claims since the readers haven't been online in 2 months or more.
Cheers,
Ava.
