I have a question about how to read one section. The text says this:
I learned today that you put things in like this " " when you write anything anybody has said. I didnt know that before. I must go over all my letters to you and put them in. And after a question you must put a mark like this ? and when a letter is left out..
I'm unsure of how to read the quotation marks and the question mark. Should I read, "I learned today that you put in things like this, quotation marks, when you write anything anybody has said...And after a question you must put a mark like this, question mark, and when a letter is left out..." Or is there a better way to do it? I'm new at this!
I see what you mean - that is indeed different than the usual type of read. I think I’d read it :

I learned today that you put things in like this (pause and lower voice almost like an aside) quotation marks (then normal voice continues) when you write ...

Does that make sense?

Thanks Maria + Jude! I'm sorry I didn't get around to answering this question...I was offline and when I came on it was already resolved.

Hi Catherine,
Welcome to LibriVox! I will save that chapter for you. But before you begin, you'll need to have your 1-Minute test checked and approved. You can find more information about it in the Wiki. Post it in the Listeners/Editors Wanted forum, and within a day or two usually a more experienced volunteer will come along and check it for you. Once you have it approved, then you can go ahead and record. :wink: Thanks for claiming!
