Sections 19 & 28 are PL OK!

I haven't read my sections yet so if someone else wants them, they can have them. I can fix the ones with PL notes though!
OK, Elijah, I've opened up sections 35 and 40.
Thanks for the PL -- just a few more to get caught up.

Thank you Larry. Sometimes I want to be honest and let people know that my sections would probably get done faster without me.

I did not fix the extra "Chapter 41" @ 0:21 because I realized none of my other chapters has that either. I checked several other readers including Larry's chapters, and we are not saying it except at the very beginning of the file. :) Correct me if I'm wrong, though. Probably, since the book doesn't actually call them chapters. I hope this is right?
Thanks!

Both of these chapters are PL OK! :9:

Much appreciated. It's been almost 2 months since I submitted my piece. I thought you guys had forgotten about me.

Two that you do want to change, because they are so well-known are

0:32 Greenwich is pronounce GREN-ICH
0:24 Thames is pronounced TEMS

And, Leicester at

1:02 Leicester is pronounced LESTER
2:48 Leicester - again
4:00 Leicester - again

You might want to check one of the pronunciation sites to get a better idea on these.
I'm not trying to by picky, but only to help you be better.

Oh, and some sound issues, relatively minor and the grand scale.

0:19-21 Loud bangs
0:28 snap
Hello Larry,

I've put the links to my sections (14 & 21), in the MW, but here they are anyway:

https://librivox.org/uploads/kikisaulite/herotales_14_burnham_128kb.mp3
https://librivox.org/uploads/kikisaulite/herotales_21_burnham_128kb.mp3

I'm a bit confused as to why I need to change the pronunciations on Greenwhich, Leicester, & Thames though. I pronounced those correct, and didn't pronounce those they was you say I did. Not that I don't trust your ears, but I heard otherwise. I fixed the snaps and bangs thought and amplified 14.

So glad this project is nearing the finish, I'll PL your section shortly!

Have a nice day!
