Thanks! :) That is OK, all those requirements can be a bit frustrating at the beginning, but you'll get used to them quickly.
Our PLer Elsie will listen to your file when she has time and let you know if any corrections are needed.

Hi Kristine,
The book ends with the following paragraph, would you like that included or should I cut off before that?
The Author wishes to state his indebtedness to the work of Dr. de Boer, who first of all turned the lengthy and often tedious reports of foreign travel into a concise and readable form and brought the knowledge of these early adventures among a larger number of readers than before. Copies of the voyages in original and reprint can be found in many American libraries. The material for illustrations is very complete. Where no originals were available reprints were made from the pictures which the publishing firm of Meulenhof and Co. of Amsterdam printed in Dr. de Boer's first series of ancient voyages.
Foon - Please correct my pronunciation!


Readers needed:
Dramatic Reading: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Folklore/legends: Arabian Nights Vol. 11
Dialogues: Dialogues of the Gods
Play: Zeus the Tragedian
