Question: For each chapter, should the summary headings be read?

eg, for Chapter V, these are: RENEWAL OF EXCAVATIONS AT KOUYUNJIK.—FIRST VISIT TO NIMROUD.—STATE OF RUINS.... through to BAAZANI.—BAASHEIKHAH

I'd prefer that you do read them, I counted them into the word count. Personally, I've never been a big fan of summary headings, but some authors put them there, and I think they're meant to be read.

Oh dear, what a twit I am. Was making great progress, and then just realised I was nearly finished Chapter V, rather than VI! I'll have to start on Ch. VI instead. Silly silly.

Nice reading. Just a couple of PL notes:

00 There is some audible background bird noise. I actually rather like it, but perhaps consider removing from 0-1.45?
0.15 I did not hear the full text “For more information, or to volunteer, please visit..”
3.37 "But the unbiassed enquirer..." I heard BY
4.21 ..."will come to this conclusion... "a stumble over come
4.31 stumble over added

Hope this helps. I am happy to PL more if this would be helpful.
regards

This looks like fun. Can I claim chapters VI and vII?
Yes you may. Thank you so much for claiming, glad to have you here! :D <smile>
Elijah, by mistake I have almost completed reading Chapter V, both parts, with only ~2000 words to go. If you haven't started these, would it be worth reassigning them to me instead! Let me know. Sorry, silly of me to make the mistake. In the meantime, I'll begin on VI.

That's wonderful PLing, good job! Thank you for the PL notes, I will fix them and upload a new file. Please feel free to PL my future sections

Oh that's totally alright, I completely understand. I'll give you chapter 5.

Chapter 5 (both parts) is now ready for PL.
Is there by the way a convention for the filenaming when a chapter is split? In this case, I used a and b to indicate parts 1 and 2. If it should be different, happy to do.

Yes this should be done a different way. All the files need to be named by the section they are listed as in the MW. So in this case, the prefaces are 00, chapter 1 is 01 etc, so then, since chapter 5 is the first chapter in two parts, you would list it as 05 as part 1, and 06 as part 2.

Ohhh, I had missed the importance of the SECTION number vs the Chapter number! Thanks, that makes sense and I will be careful to observe in future. Should I rename these two files properly and upload again? (Thanks for the nice comment about my Oz accent, appreciated)

Would you mind waiting until I finish PLing your sections? That way, if you have more PL notes, you don't have to upload more than once. :D <smile>

Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.
