Very cool! I have COVID right now and my voice has been nearly gone for several days, but it’s on the mend, and I would love to read Piglet if you don’t mind waiting until my voice fully returns (which I anticipate is not terribly far off).
Salvationist

I’m sick right now and unable to record. I’m hoping to be back soon.

Current focus: A Study in Scarlet, Acadia, and A Collection of Letters

The narrator should use the full disclaimer for each chapter, as per the first post here. The scripts have the short one, which is wrong, so please be careful when recording, or fix the scripts. Thanks!

Awww Thank you for such a wonderful Kanga. :) Chapters 8 and 10 are both PL OK :thumbs: :thumbs:

On ch. 7, could you please insert a pause of 3-5 seconds at 2:27, so that these lines are separated? Thank you :)

Kanga: "I am not at all sure,"

Kanga: "that it wouldn't be a good idea to have a cold bath this evening. Would you like that, Roo, dear?"
