I will take Sections 12 and 13 if they are still open.

Great! Welcome to the project!

Please note that “Psmith” is a joke - the main character’s name is pronounced “Smith” when reading aloud.

Also, the author is “wood-house”.

What fun this book is! I am barely acquainted with P. G. Wodehouse, so thank you for this introduction.

May I please claim Section 12 MORE ON THE FLOWER-POT THEME? I have nearly finished my first recording for LibriVox.

Thanks so much for overseeing this project,
Grace

Well, this is awkward :( :lol: I finished chapter 12 but it looks like I never got added into the MW as having claimed it.

It's here:

Grace, if you haven't started it yet, would you like to take on Chapter 13 instead? Otherwise let me know, it's not the end of the world if you're attached to reading 12 in particular.

I’m so sorry! The confusion is my fault! I thought I was keeping the MW up to date, but obviously not!

Samari, you claimed Ch 12 and 13 first do those are yours.

Grace, you can have chapter 4 which I had claimed for myself (mainly because it was the shortest).

No worries :wink:
Also, I fixed the filename on Ch. 12 to be kb instead of kbps:

No harm done. Thank you both for your generosity. Elizabby and Samari, I am glad to accommodate the confusion, and accept Chapter 4 with enthusiasm.

This reminds me of an old joke. A speaker has just finished an address to a large crowd and asks a bystander, "Well, what do you think? Be honest." The stranger says, "I don't like your tie."

:lol: Good thing that you can't see my tie. It might distract you from giving me more pearls of wisdom :wink:
