Here is chapter 6: https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/radioboyssecretservice_06_duffield_128kb.mp3
Thank you!
Hi,
I don't really know if this would matter, but at 10:41, you say "as as a sleuth". It's not a very serious repeat, but I'll shoot Larry a PM asking about it.
10:50-10:56-the silence is six seconds long; please shave off one second.

Here is section 5

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/radioboyssecretservice_05_duffield_128kb.__.mp3
Length (8:35)
Sorry I didn't catch this, but the file name is incorrect.
The should be no underscores between 128kb and mp3. Just a dot: 128kb.mp3
(the .mp3 is added when you upload the file)

Can you upload this again with the corrected file name and post the link again?

May I claim Section 3?
You have Section 3 to record.
Thank you!
Larry, as I was recording this section, I noticed a problem in the text. In a line near the end of the chapter, "Next afternoon as the boys were on their way home from school again, Guy called a halt in front of the Chenoweth House, saying:..." it is actually Walter who is saying this, not Guy, the twin brother who's gone abroad. So do I need to make the correction while recording, or record as it is without any change? It may be confusing to readers, so I thought I'd ask. Here's the link to the section I'm talking about.

Read it just as written. That is one of our LV principles. Rarely, if there is a clear typo we might make a correction, or if there is an obvious proofing error in the Gutenberg text. Remember, these are twins. It might well be that Guy says he wants to see the clerk and then Walter is the one who goes in. But, in any case, stick to the text here. Thanks for raising the issue, though! :)

Okay, thank you for clarifying that! :) Anyway I had gone ahead with the original text and here's the recording of Section 3. Run time is 8 minutes 22 seconds.

Hi,
You just have one problem here:
8:16-8:23-silence at the end is too long (7 seconds); please take two seconds off of the end of the recording so the silence is five seconds long.
