Hello! I'd like to claim Section 4 The Case of Allan Breck. :)

(I recently submitted recordings for the monthly poetry collection, but they haven't been gotten to yet. I'd like to be credited as Molly Amundson in the catalog).

Molly
All yours!

Umm...

I notice that there is still one open section remaining. 11. The Chebalier D'éon.

It is most peculiar!

I wondered if I might claim it?
I have absolutely nothing in this world but time - so I believe I should invest it wisely...

Thanks. I should have it done by then and if not I will give it up.

Ok sounds good - this project is nowhere near completion so I’m not really concerned :thumbs:

Hi Elsie, section 9 is coming along, almost done. Finished my first recording and my first review of spots I needed to re-record. Should have something to upload before the month is out.

Confession: This is harder than I thought! I have a new-found respect for readers, esp. of this text: Lang's prose is dizzying.

:9: Glad to hear all is going well! It gets easier with practice in my experience

No kidding!
I am in the middle of recording Chapter 6, "The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser."
Lang is very word-heavy but also very snarky.
Makes for an interesting... um, challenge.

Here is Chapter VI, "The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser: The Child of Europe."
https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/historicalmysteries_06_lang_128kb.mp3
Duration: 49:56
What a slog this turned out to be! :evil:
Lang is such a persnickety+verbose "debunker"-type blowhard.
The only way I could maintain any interest was to put a snarky spin on it.
I really hope it's OK, because I wouldn't want to revisit it.
I must say I'm not happy with this recording... but I don't think I could improve upon it.
O well...LJB :cry:

Hello Elsie!!!!

Well... That was 'fun'! :roll:

I was intrigued by the bizarre nature of this account, but I have learned my lesson! I will make sure to read
the entire text before volunteering in future! :lol:

I have posted the read for checking, but it isn't quite ready for catalogue yet. Allow me to explain...

They's a lot of words in this wot I didn't understand! I tried Google for pronunciation whenever I hit a wall -
but a lot of this ain't there! So I just sort of... Er...

Well, I just made it up, okay?

There are a whole load of places where I didn't actually have clue what I was saying - so apologies in advance if I've said something rude! :roll:

Note: I'm posting this, but it ain't 'complete'. I have absolutely no idea how to pronounce

'2l. 13s. 6d'

So I have left a gap for it. (About the 27 minute mark.)

I assume that 2l. means 2 livres - but after that I'm totally lost!

Oh yes, the runtime - after I edited out all the fluffs and, 'ahem', enthusiastic 'ad libs' - is 27.51.
I have absolutely nothing in this world but time - so I believe I should invest it wisely...
