Thank you.

(I have claimed chapter 30. Guess I better see what this book is about before it is all done!)

Rightho - Chapter 29 finished. I really wish I hadn't stopped halfway through. Had a devil of a time matching the sound as my set up was dismantled to fit pressies in the room! Here's hoping one day I'll afford a booth. Aside from the occasional differences in tone I think it's there.

They're super expensive. I've got an acoustic blanket on order though. Hopefully that will help.

Chapter 30 complete. I feel like that one chapter gives me the entire book in a nutshell. Length 55:20.

I’ll start listening to recorded chapters tomorrow. Miz Brunson was a wordy little thing, wasn’t she!

Thank you.

I think some of the wordiness is for "literary redundancy". I really felt that from my chapter 30 alone I knew much of what important had happened in the preceding chapters. Perhaps it was done this way so that people could easily pick up the story in mid-flow, perhaps for reading aloud. Or so that, given how long it is, they would be reminded in every chapter of what happened earlier.
