I had a quick question. There's a town called "Tidicute" mentioned in the text; but when I went to check the pronunciation of the name, I found that the town is apparently called "Tidioute". Should I assume this is a misprint, or just try to read the text as written?

Interesting question... I wouldn't have thought to look it up :lol: But having done so, I think it would be best to go with the town's actual name, assuming a typo since this work is based on fact. If it were a pice of fiction, my answer would be different. That said, I'll leave it to your discretion.

Hello. This chapter I completed (Ch. 5) hasn't been completely checked, and I have another section in another book. Should I start on the new one, or should I wait until this one is OK'd?

It's up to you... many readers have several sections 'on the go' at a time, at various stages of recording/editing/PL. That said, if you don't feel comfortable juggling multiple sections from different projects, by all means, wait. Just remember if you need to come back and check sections needing PL or spot PL.

I'm sure Helen will PL within the next couple of days... but please remember everyone is a volunteer and, apparently, some people have lives outside LV :shock:
