I believe Sections 24, 25, and 26 are still open? I'd like to give them a try if I could -

Jim D.

Hi William,
Sections 32 and 33 are PL OK. You have such a personable approach to these readings. I think Godwin would be delighted with your narration.
Thanks!

Why, thank you very much for this compliment!
I *am* digging around trying to learn more about Godwin.

Here is a thread I'm following:

Memoirs of the Author of a Vindication of the Rights of Woman by William Godwin
Author‎: ‎Godwin, William, 1756-1836 EBook-No‎: ‎16199 (http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16199)
Downloads‎: ‎128 downloads in the last 30 days I'm thinking that this spurt of downloads of Godwin's book and the starting up of your Godwin project are connected.

That author mentioned in his title was Mary Wollstonecraft.

Mary's Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Wollstonecraft

This article starts with:

Mary Wollstonecraft; 27 April 1759 – 10 September 1797) was an English writer, philosopher, and advocate of women's rights. Until the late 20th century, Wollstonecraft's life, which encompassed several unconventional personal relationships at the time, received more attention than her writing. Today Wollstonecraft is regarded as one of the founding feminist philosophers, and feminists often cite both her life and her works as important influences.

During her brief career, she wrote novels, treatises, a travel narrative, a history of the French Revolution, a conduct book, and a children's book. Wollstonecraft is best known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason.

After two ill-fated affairs, with Henry Fuseli and Gilbert Imlay (by whom she had a daughter, Fanny Imlay), Wollstonecraft married the philosopher William Godwin, one of the forefathers of the anarchist movement. Wollstonecraft died at the age of 38 leaving behind several unfinished manuscripts. She died eleven days after giving birth to her second daughter, Mary Shelley, who would become an accomplished writer and author of Frankenstein.

Section 7 begins with TWO footnotes or quasi-footnotes starting on its first page. Their total length is about a full page. My plan is to read them as one preface to the body of the reading.

Next, the section also begins with a LONG list of topics which will be touched upon in the section. I hope you'll agree that this "preview" of topics is unnecessary to a listener's understanding of the text. I would like to omit it from the recording.
How say you?
