I'll scoop up all your 1 pagers:
8,9,11,15,16,20,24,29,34,38,42 aaaaaaaannnddd 45
I've set a challenge (a stern suggestion to myself) to record something every day (within reason) and this will really get me started (at some point this week). :lol:
a page a day so to speak ? Sounds like a cool endeavour and one that is feasible. Now you have peer-pressure, having so openly set your challenge into the forum :mrgreen:

Welcome to this project, Erin, and thank you for taking part. Looking forward to your bits drizzling in. You have claimed many paintings, so please read the second post carefully, where I pointed out the special instructions for this project on how to correctly say the intro for those.

Thanks and have fun

Sonia
Got it! Thanks for putting the title info in the MW. I was going to ask you where to put the page #... and it was already there!

Also, do I use the short disclaimer for these? "Section [number (the MW number?)] of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, read for LibriVox.org by..."

Lastly, it looks like I completely missed the other half of the one pagers! I'll come back for whatever hasn't been claimed when I'm done with these.
And verily did the chains fall off all manner of things which sorely needed chaining.
I’m ->superpsyched<- for the opportunity to join this community, learn all I can and read all I can.

yes to make it easy, I put the complete "title" in the MW as it should be read

yes for all sections under 2 pages you can use the short disclaimer. It's also marked in the MW in the notes section. (in pink, where the full disclaimer should be read)

Here is Section 3--I am the worst at the Scottish accent, so why do I keep choosing selections requiring a Scottish accent? :hmm:

you acquitted yourself of it quite well, Jim. Good practice with Uncle Adam already :mrgreen: I liked it very much and was able to understand the king.

Absolutely PL ok. Thank you so much !

If you say so. I guess I can imagine what it should be and find mine wooden by comparison. But enough said about that. Thanks, Sonia! Jim

Quick question for section 45 Balaclava. The text reads:

... ground to the Russian batteries was given, there were, as Tennyson says, —

"Cannon in front of them."

There was a battery in front and on each flank, and Russian riflemen on both sides. Every soldier realized the hopelessness of the charge and knew that

"Some one had blundered";

but military discipline prevailed,


Should this be read straight or add "quote" before the quotes for clarity?

Tennyson says, — quote "Cannon in front of them." There was a battery in front ...... charge and knew that quote "Some one had blundered"; but military discipline...

Thx

No need for quotes, it messes up the flow of the text too much. If you wish you can maybe say it in a sort of different voice, but that is up to you. Or a bit of a pause before, but not too much.

thanks for asking :D
