Sorry, forgot to include duration again. This is only my second recording and I've gotta get into that habit.

Thank you, both! I hope to listen later this afternoon.

Yeah, one of those habits to get into. ;)

Here is section 8. My recording's quality is probably not as high as my last one, and I am truly sorry. My equipment is awful. It's mostly my headset's fault and I've got a new one on the way right now.

Yeah, the quality on this one is pretty bad. I can't understand some of what you're saying.

I'd suggest waiting for the new mic, then using that to record this section. Is that OK with you?

Yeah, that will be fine. It might be a few weeks, though. I'm not sure when it'll be here.

We can be patient, as long as it isn't several months. ;)

You're in for 20! 8-)

Here's your catalog page: https://librivox.org/reader/14585

You can get to it by clicking your name in the Magic Window wherever you have claimed sections.

If you click on "Reader section details" you'll see a list of sections you're assigned, and what stage they're at in the process. :)

I have a quick question. In one part of the appendix there is the text
Then ‘Cap’ Hatfield yelled, ‘Shoot her, ----- her, and let’s go on’
For the long line, is that supposed to indicate a repeat of the word shoot, or an expletive that I just pause for?

I assume it stands for "damn", but I don't like to include words the author didn't include. :)

A pause will sound like a mistake. Are you okay with saying "blank her"? :lol:

:D Sure thing. Blank is the closest thing other than dash her which most likely was not the authors intent.
