Hi there, thank you for starting this project!

May I please read section 1? Unless you wanted it of course!

A question on pronunciation: Would you read “Amerikey” as it is spelled, or just say America?

Hi again - I apologize, but I will have to drop out of this one. There is a slur in the text I am not comfortable recording. Sorry again!

This one is looking lonely. Shall I start it off with Sections 0, 1, and 2?

That would be great.
The divisions are somewhat fluid, but please discuss with me before changing them.

Here are my sections:

Section 0: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/americandiary_00_noguchi_128kb.mp3 - 1m41s
Section 1: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/americandiary_01_noguchi_128kb.mp3 - 19m04s
Section 2: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/americandiary_02_noguchi_128kb.mp3 - 10m14s

I must admit, playing a young Japanese girl was a bit of a stretch :lol: , I hope did a serviceable job.

Thank you. If we all only ever read “to type”, we would be severely limited.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but I may be unable to PL in a timely fashion. Between my new job and online training and the first few weeks of college classes and my entire house coming down with covid AND my two puppies developing tracheal bronchitis, I'm stretched a tiny bit thin. I'll try to get to these as soon as I can but it may be a bit. If someone wants to take over the project, I understand but I'm also excited about this project and will try to make it and all the others a priority
