If no one else has plans for it, I'd like to give Chapter 2 a try.
Great, thanks!
I see there's a footnote in the text. I don't know if there's a Librivox standard for those. This is how I've heard it handled in other audiobooks: "Text of passage. Footnote: text of footnote. Slight pause. Text of passage resumes." Sometimes, more formally, the footnote is blocked off with "Footnote... End of footnote." I find that somewhat more than necessary for clarity, but will be happy to follow whatever the preference is.
I'm leaving decision of whether to read the footnotes up to the readers. Personally, I prefer the format "Footnote... End of footnote", but if you can make the end of the footnote clear without the second part, and prefer it that way, I won't object.

Michael - I'll follow your preference. In this case the footnote is an informative comment and I think should definitely be included; and I'll go for the best option where clarity is concerned.

Thank you, Jordan! I should be able to listen with a couple of days.

For the future, please note that we ask readers to provide the length of their recording (mm:ss) for every upload. I've checked the length for this one. :)

Nice work! Just a couple of minor technical issues: please shorten the silence at the start to <1 second and the silence at the end to ~5 seconds.

Thanks,
Michael

Oh sorry about all that. I've added 1 second of silence to the beginning and 5 seconds to the end and re-uploaded. The new time is 32:05
