This is section 39 for PL please:
https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/dreamredchamber2_39_cao_128kb.mp3 [26:57]
notes:
1. @6:19, an 'in' is added after '...and bring it';
2. @7:25, 'he' instead of 'she';
3. @15:22, should be 'gallivanting';
4. @24:46, what 'Wang Tzu-t'eng' was referring to by the translator is unclear; it seems that Cao was referring to a 'fang guan', who was some kind of local officials of the neighborhood.

Also, I would like to claim sections 40 and 41,
Thanks

Hi there,

I'm interested in recording section 44, Chapter XLVII, Part 1.
3400 words until "a girl of seventeen years of age, Yen Hung by name, whom he introduced as secondary wife into his household."

Looking forward to getting busy,
Tels

Thank you David! Two more sections for you. I'm glad you're enjoying the book! :D

Hi there tels, welcome to LV!
This is a pretty difficult project you've chosen for your first recording, so do ask if you have questions!

I see that you have submitted your test already, please wait for the [OK] before you start on this one - I have pencilled you in for now.
Cheers,
Ava.

Hi @Availle,

Thanks for the intro. I don't think anyone has looked at the test(https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/peterpiper.mp3) yet.
The names are challenging, it's true, and the sentences are a little counter intuitive in their flow, but I'm ready to make my contribution, once the test is accepted (viewtopic.php?f=21&t=75623). :)
