It's about Japan, it'll be great! :9:

I'm never really disappointed about a section here, it's just that the titles are rather misleading sometimes. How can you call an essay "Tides in the Open Atlantic" when the whole thing says "oh, we can't really measure the tides on open sea, so let's move on to some bays I have randomly chosen..." :twisted: Not that this is not interesting - I've learned that the tides rise pretty much at the same speed everywhere, even in a very large bay - but do choose a better title then. :roll:

Well, I should take just one and see how it goes. How about Section 1?
Somewhat patronizing, but I'll read it.

Definitely! Thank you for joining us, Mark! By what name would you like to be credited as a Reader in the catalogue? It could be your forum name, or the name you'll be using in the recordings for the "Read by" part :D

Consider doing a test recording before the real one, to check that your recording settings are correct. Here's info on how to do this test https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

I'm not sure what I read. I either missed the point entirely, ...or missed the point entirely.
