No rush. I know you have a lot of other stuff on your plate. Thanks for the update!

Well, here is Book 1.
I did include footnotes, but nothing else in way of intro or outro or side notes. I think that is what we had discussed, but if I need to change anything, just let me know.

No, footnotes are not necessary. Kevin will read the footnotes, as well as intros and headings. Don't worry about it though. I'll try to PL tomorrow or the next day. If there's nothing else, then I'll just remove the footnotes myself while editing. I'll let you know! Thanks!

Great work, Larry! This was a lot! If I recall rightly, you won't have quite this much of a load again until we get to Book 5, if then. :)

I do have a few notes for you. Mostly spacing, which I would have been happy to take care of if that had been all, but there are a few minor slips here and there to clean up as well.

1:40 Space here to insert section heading.
2:54-3:04 This footnote can be replaced with a space.
4:48 Space here to insert section heading.
5:27 Space here to insert section heading.
6:07 Missing line: "she asked."
6:31 Tiny word change here which changes the meaning. Text reads: "... as your sure resting-place in my house?" I hear "... as your sure resting-place in any house?"
6:55-7:03 This footnote can be replaced with a space.
8:35-8:46 This footnote can be replaced with a space.
10:03 Missing word in this sentence (underlined): "Think you that I have raised up against myself bitter and great quarrels enough?"
15:39 Slight word change. Text reads: "... condemned to death and the confiscation of my property..." I hear "... condemned to death for the confiscation of my property..."
16:44-16:50 This footnote can be replaced with a space.
17:35 This one is optional, but I believe "deserts" here should be stressed on the second syllable, as in the phrase "to get their just deserts." In context, it is "that which one deserves."
19:00 Space here to insert section heading.
21:23 Space here to insert section heading.

EDIT: Oh yes, and somehow you snuck in an extra comma into the file name. As you know, that's not really crucial to a DR reading, as it will be renamed, but I thought I'd point it out anyway. :wink:

Kevin, in case you've already started recording it, please note that I have added a line in your script for Book 5. There is a footnote in Prose 4 that I left out originally, but decided to include after all.

Ok, I have uploaded all of Philosophy's words of wisdom. Maybe when I edit, I will actually begin to understand all of them. :wink:
