Hello, here's section 10:

Burke makes some compelling arguments against the idea of proportion as beauty, but I'm not sure how well they stand up to modern science, e.g. Heidekrueger et al. (2017) The Ideal Buttock Size: A Sociodemographic Morphometric Evaluation.

Hi there.

I would like to take some more sections but see that my two submitted sections, 6 and 7 have not been PLd yet.
I would like to be sure they are ok before I take on more.

Cheers

I'll send a quick PM to the DPL in case she hasn't seen this (or the sections).

Kikisaulite has let me know she's busy in real life, so I've posted an ad for a new DPL. Jenno, hopefully you'll have feedback soon!

While I was in the Section Compiler I also added andreabertelli's claim and file for section 10. Thank you!

Ej400, if you'd like to add a short description of the book to the first post, it would help prospective readers and listeners decide if they want to participate. Just let me know if you edit the post with a description so I can add it to the DPL ad and the database.

Hi. I'm new to Librivox and have never participated in a forum of any kind before. I have just listened to Part I, section 1-9 and would like to leave feedback. Is this the right place or can you help me find it?

Chapter 7, Part I, Section 1 - 9

1:13 Please take this out: "By ah" just before "But as..."

A beautiful read. You really make his sentences flow.

No mistakes. No repeat/stutters, the volume was good, and no background noises. Good job!

Hmm, ej400 must be busy this week. TommyP and chanleakhana -- thank you both very much! I've entered your notes for the relevant sections and PM'd Jenno about the edit.

I am afraid i do not understand the errors flagged in the PL notes. I cannot locate errors where they are indicated and chapter 6 is shorter than where the error are flagged to have been . Chapter 7 is noted PL OK but an error is flagged in that chapter in the thread.


Could the PL please clarify them and I will correct at once.

Cheers

Hi -- I believe there's a typo in the PL note in the thread; it's section (file number) 6, not 7. (The designations are confusing because the Librivox convention is to call each audio file a section, yet this book's text divisions are also called sections instead of chapters.) So please check file number 6 at about the 1-minute mark. I double-checked and there is indeed a tiny repeat at the start of a sentence. Thank you!
