I'm really sorry, but I won't be able to finish my section for this project. After many frustrated attempts, I've decided the pronunciation and terminology was too difficult for me and this particular reading was a little ambitious for one of my first Librivox projects. I'm very sorry and I probably should not have signed up for this without looking at the text first.
It's okay, thanks for letting us know!

Can I take section 18?
Sure! I see you have already done your 1-minute test, but under what name/pseudonym would you like to be credited in our catalog?

You can credit me as Kristy Carpenter

It might be updated in the catalog now, since I've submitted one other recording for a different project? Or it might still be under my forum name

Here is section 18: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/naturalhistoryvolume5_18_128kb.mp3
Length: 34:04

Let me know if I pronounced anything incorrectly -- there were some words that I couldn't pronunciations for online so I made my best guess!
