Welcome! I'll put you down for sections 15 and 16. Before you start, please make sure to complete a 1 minute test and have it OKed (it is not an audition, just a check of the technical settings etc. of your set-up).

What name would you like to go by in the catalog? It can be the same as your forum name, your real name, or something else altogether :)

Great reading in section 7, John!

PL notes:
the volume of the section is a bit too soft, about 84dB. Please amplify so it gets closer to 89dB.
11:05-10 long pause between sentences, please reduce it to maybe no more than two seconds.
22:46-52 long pause, please reduce it to maybe no more than two seconds.
28:22 - stumble "and there I was... and there was I" The text says "and there was I," but it doesn't really matter which one you delete :)
Please reduce the end silence to only 5 seconds.

Well done on this long section - very enjoyable to listen to! Please edit, upload, and post again in the thread when you're ready
