Hi there,

Jim beat me to the punch (I was planing on being a hog and taking the first four but I was distracted after first seeing this, working on a problem in another project), so might I claim 1, 2, and 4?

Thanks,

Wayne

I am fine with Wayne taking three, so I will just do five, okay everyone?

Hi Jim! I know you're easy going and you're fine with giving up the section. Wayne didn't say that so you'd give it up, and I would still like to follow the Librivox norms, where the first person to ask for a section, gets assigned, but if you'd really rather give it up, of course I can't force you to record it :mrgreen: For me, you're all great readers and I'm honoured to have you in these projects! :9: Please, reconsider and let me know your final decision!

Hi Betty! Larry has claimed 6, and we are already fully subscribed! This issue again has only two articles, but I think I saw more titles in the contents of the next one! I hope to see you there! :D
