Here is chapter 3

I thought I had already sent this - maybe i sent it to the incorrect thread ! I have rather a lot of projects going at the one time so that is entirely possible !

Anyway here is it.

duration 10.01


Cheers


Jennifer
Thanks for checking back and posting this again! Chapter 3 is PL OK (and very effectively read, too)

Thank you for your interest in this project.
We do, however, request that our new readers first complete a one-minute test recording to check out all of your technical specifications and any reading issues.

New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!

Among the useful information there you will find instructions for completing your test recording. Once you have the "OK" on that, post again here and you are free to record for this project. Let us know how you would like to be credited in the LibriVox catalog - real name, pseudonym or other nickname.

There also some very good resources on our Main Page
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Main_Page

I will put you in for 23 to get you started.

Chapter 13 - Employment - Idleness Produces Misery (and the eating of sweets! :lol: )
https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/originalstories_13_wollstonecraft_128kb.mp3

4:32.46
This is just delightfully read! :clap: :clap: Hoping I can learn to read like that after some time and practice...
There's just one issue,at 3:15: I heard "we have actions to weigh, and need that taste *to* conduct that delicate sense of propriety which gives grace to virtue..." and found that sentence puzzling; the text has "we have actions to weigh, and need that taste *in* conduct, that delicate sense of propriety, which gives grace to virtue..."
Dear Joanna, thank you for your very kind comments! And thank you for identifying the peculiar sentence!
:)
Here is the corrected version:

Hi!

I would like to read Chapter 5, if possible. This is my first recording, and I'd like to appear under the name "Willow Lin".

Thanks!

Welcome to Librivox, and thank you for your chapter! :clap: :clap: I enjoyed the clearness and expressiveness of your reading. There are just three small changes to be made:

At minute 4, second 48, in "the constant concurrence of trifling things makes it necessary that reason and conscience should always preside..." I heard "reason and conscious"
At 8:05, in "Before I tell you how she acquired these vicious habits..." I heard "how she required"
It might also be helpful to run Noise Reduction on the file to remove the low buzzing and whistling noises in the background, though these are never loud enough to make your very clear reading hard to understand.

Just upload your corrected file under the same name and post the link here again with the new file length.

Thank you again! It's good to have you with us!
