Here are 11, 12, and 15:

I'm afraid I recorded all these too close to the mic, especially section 15. Please let me know if I need to redo them - I reduced the volume but am still getting a lot of unwanted sounds! -Rachel
What you are hearing are "'plosives", breath noises picked up by the mic, 'specially the H, TH, D, B, P sounds. Try speaking at an angle to the mic, the volume will have to be increased a bit, the volume of your files was a bit on the low side.
Please experiment a bit with mic placement and volume levels. You may also want to try a POP filter - a wind screen to catch the breath before it hits the mic.
Your readings were all PL OK, it is up to you if you want to redo them. :D

Thanks - I will leave them as they are in the interest of getting it done in a timely manner!

Section 4 is PL OK!

Section 5 PL notes

at the start - you say section 45 instead of section 5

These 2 only slightly change the meaning, so I'll leave it up to you if you want to leave or fix them:

3:05 text reads "but toward spring come more familiarly around houses" - you say "become"

4:02 texts reads "a light greenish-blue" you say "a light bluish-green"

I've edited the intro and the 3:05 misread, left the last one. :wink:

Section 22 claim has expired. This section is now open for a new reader to claim. Cotton, anyone?

I see I haven't read for this one...

So, if you're not extremely hurried with it, I'll take the offered cotton plant. :wink:

Well, I would like to get this one wrapped in the next month or so. Does that work for you? :)

"next month" is fine. I was worried about "in the next few days". :D
