Obs, thanks for catching that:)

Danglars chap 2 is PL OK

In chap 3, at 01:20 and 02:24, you misspronounce "Edmond Dantes", and at 01:28 and 01:44 "Fernand"
Listen to the pronounciation guide in the first post, you'll find them both there.
At 02:41, you missed a line, "To-day the preliminaries, to-morrow or next day the ceremony! You are in a hurry, captain!"
At 03:28 I hear "pharon" instead of "Pharaon"

In chapter 4, at 5:08, misspronounciation of "Edmond" and at 6:19 "Fernand"

In chapter 5, at 1:16, there is a strange backround noise tha ruins one of the lines , sound a bit like a plane?
At 1:45 there is a line I coulored wrong, sorry about that, so you're missing ""Hold your tongue, you fool!—what should you know about it?—why, you were drunk"
At 5:02 there's a car honk or something in the background
At 5:34 the line is "The Hypocrite", but you said "Hypocrite", and it sounds a bit like you're saying it to Morrel
AT 6:13 and 8:15 I hear "Pharon", instead of "Pharaon"
6:25 missponounciation of Edmund

Sorry to be so strict, but you are doing a great job reading it:)

Oops, same version of 65 posted twice. My bad.

I'll get the fixes done shortly.

Just checking if my pronunciation etc. is ok for these placenames, especially. (I see for Eugenie, she mostly speaks people-names, which have the pronunciation guide to help. ) Also I wanted to make sure that I was uploading the proper FLAC file for you!

https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/montecristo_teresa_36.flac (0:38)
https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/montecristo_teresa_33.flac (0:42) -- I feel a bit like the WhenHarryMetSally faking-it scene, with all of the enthusiastic "Yes!"es in that one.

For Eugenie, should I list both first and last name when doing my "read by" line?

Oh, MrsHand: for pops, I've found a Microphone filter (I think this is what I have: http://smile.amazon.com/Dragonpad-filter%C2%AE-Microphone-Flexible-Gooseneck/dp/B008AOH1O6/ ) can be really helpful.

A low-tech version is to take pantyhose/tights and stretch them over a hanger or embroidery hoop other such frame, and make sure it's about 1" from the mic (not touching it).

I had horribly plosive "P"s before I got this. Now I don't need to edit at all - those pops are caught in the screen before the mic hears them!

Here's the updated files...I think I got them all.

For Chapters 3 & 5, I got the pronuncation for Pharaon from here: http://www.forvo.com/word/pharaon/ because I didn't see it elsewhere. I re-recorded it to sound a bit more French.
