Here are Sections 63, 64 and 65:

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/1000things_65_fowler_128kb.mp3 [00:03:54]


I'd gladly take 39, 40 and 41 if the above are PL OK :)
These three are all PL OK!

I nearly lost it when the one drowning recommendation was that if they're fighting you while you're trying to rescue them, hold them under the water until they pass out.

I had to pause and go over it again in case I had misread it. Regardless, I guess some of these should be taken with a grain of salt... or a whole box.

Section 52 has a repeat at 02:07 of "The value of the tobacco..."

Section 54 has a repeat of the outro.

Very well read!
Whoops!
I uploaded the fixed versions.

Just before you posted I sneakily edited my post to include 49 as well - just checking, did you see that?

Sign me up for 58. I'll try my best at one of the tables with exorbitant amounts of numbers :p

I don't want to claim chapter 13 necessarily, I just have a question.
Could the distances be read "From New York to Atlanta, 876 miles; from Chicago, 733 miles; from Philadelphia, 785 miles…"? Ultimately there'd be way more than 658 words read.
This is probably true.
Word counts are given just as an aid to the reader.
Sometimes projects will list only the number of pages, give an estimate of the word count, or give none at all (especially true in poetry). The only thing we try to be precise about is the file length of the recordings, but even that is only a guide to help the DPL, BC and MC for their various tasks. When a project is compiled and sent to Archive, the actual times are calculated, and word counts don't appear. At least that is my understanding of the way this all works.
I'm sorry, I guess I wasn't clear. I don't care about the word count at all. I was asking about how chapter 13 should be read but I guess the question is moot now.

I did miss 49 -- must have added it after I updated the MW
And, I've put you in for 58.
Let me know if you need any help with those tables. :)

I just wanted to check one thing about tables like below. What I did in this case was

One centigramme is 0.15432 grains. [omitting the cells in this row that don't have an entry]
One kilogramme is 15432.34880 grains, or 32.150 ounce troy, or 2.204 pounds avoir, or 0.019 hundredweight. [with some extra added filler words]
D'you think it's OK like that?

Code: Select all

               	Grains		Oz. Troy	Lbs. Avoir.	Cwt.
Centigramme	0.15432		.....		.....		.....
Kilogramme	15432.34880	32.150		2.204		0.019
I wish the PL lots of fun with this one :lol:

And now that I emptied my reading list a bit again, I'll take the remaining two Sports Records sections if I may (44&45) :P

By the way, I noticed that 58 wasn't put in the MW yet (it was included in my previous post).
