Volume 1 was cataloged in 2015, and this volume, as far as I see, has never been recorded.
To the MC: How do you think I should split up the sections? Or do you think that they are fine by simply one chapter per section?

I'll be glad to MC it. Regarding division into sections, the only technical limitation is that we won't publish an mp3 file longer than 74 minutes. Within those limits, you as BC can decide whether and how to divide the chapters. Some BCs prefer longer sections, some prefer shorter sections, and likewise the readers. If you paste the contents of each chapter into a word counter, you'll get an estimate of recording length (for me, one hour of recording usually corresponds to about 8000 words, but keep in mind that reading speed varies widely). Let me know how many sections you intend to have after looking into it, and I'll set up the MW for you.

Great! Since the project has already spent a few days on the launch pad, I'll move it over to Readers Wanted.
