Thing is that it's hard enough to find readers, and the pronunciation guide is already MASSIVE. :shock: So I don't want to prescribe anything beyond the absolutely necessary. I'm sure most people who are unfamiliar with the names here would look them up somehow or make an educated guess... I just don't want to force them "do exactly this" in any way.
Oh, okay, yes! That makes absolute sense. I certainly intended this more as a suggestion or tip we could offer to prospective readers who are struggling to make sense of the romanization without enough fluency to check it against the Chinese, but I can very much understand your concerns re: adding new prescriptive obstacles to people even being able to join the project. Thank you for hearing me out, and I'll get started on section 29 tonight! :D

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!

Thank you very much!

I would appreciate if you could to section 19 as well- it's the second half of chapter 34, it's nice to have one reader per chapter!

But sections 32 and 33 are yours in any case. Enjoy! :D
Cheers,
Ava.

This is section 31 for PL:
https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/dreamredchamber2_31_cao_128kb.mp3 [33:03]

notes:
1. @5:14, 'Mi Nang-yang' should be a typo for 'Mi Xiang-yang'(a famous Chinese painter);
2. @16:06, I read 'tidying' instead of 'titifying', which did not seem to make any sense;
3. @26:33, 'Miss' should be a typo for 'Mrs';
4. @26:42, an 'as' is inserted to make the intention of the sentence clearer

Also, I would like to claim sections 34 and 35 please.
