Section 75 is PL OK ~ thank you!

As the characters name are Paul and Averill, there is no question that they are a man and a woman.

Pet name for Paulette, perhaps? :p

Writing openly gay works would have been too scandalous for a lot of people, so there was (is) a style where the writer deliberately avoided pronouns until the very end in order to cover up the gay. It's a stretch, but a good one. x)

My very first Librivox reading was LM Montgomery almost 10 years ago.

I don't mind if you claim both Christmas stories, Kevin. Let me know if you want the other one! :-)
I'll do these first and then take a turkey story if they haven't been claimed.
Oh Dude! I'm sorry. I just saw this going back through the posts.

Hi Baishali,

You did a nice job! :-)

There are a few things that need to be corrected.
The first correction, is actually my fault! I forgot to change Chapter to Section in the template. So sorry about that! :oops:
@0:40 if you could change it from "Chapter" to "Section" 81, that would be great.
@0:46 after the title, this part should be cut out "L. M. Montgomery Illustrated by Arthur E. Jameson." I understand it can be confusing what to record and what not to in this case!
@3:59 There is a small repeat. "back...backbone"
@21:00 you included the outro that is only used for the last section. This part needs to be removed: "End of Uncollected Short Stories of L.M. Montgomery, by Lucy Maud Montgomery. "
There are also some thumps in the silence at the end. If you could try to make sure there are not any, that would be great! :-)

And last, but not least, when you reupload, be sure to name the file as: uncollectedlmm_81_montgomery_128kb

It might look like a long list, but it really isn't bad. For the actual story, you only had that one small repeat, so that is great! :thumbs:

I have just a couple of questions about fixing this recording. You ask to have the intro completed but there is not enough space in the beginning of my recording to insert more into. I know how to cut something out but not add something to the beginning. Also, the Effects button has Amplify as an option but I don't see how to turn down the volume on something. Any help you have is appreciated. Sparky0506
