Quite happy to give up 54 if Rita wants use her recording for that section 😺
thank you, Alan. I will switch the section to Rita then.

@ Rita: you only need to put the short disclaimer at the beginning, and in the second post you can read how to say the title (including the page number). Basically everything that is written in the MW for that section. Thank you. I haven't PLed that part yet, will do so once it's correctly uploaded in its own section.

@ Kiki: thank you for your sections, will PL soon, but today I am a bit pressed for time.

We are talking about it being surprising to take less than 3 weeks to do a trip that is now a 3 hour drive....
and two more perfectly PL ok sections, Todd :clap: this Wouter guy's story was hilarious :lol: also the extremely calm Dutch captain of the ship in the second story. I loved the Dutch accent you're putting on here, a funny touch, thank you. Extremely entertaining. And we reached the 50% done mark :9:

Sonia
The Dutch accent wasn't hard as it was written phonetically in the English words of the text. (Lottsa swapping of p for d, d for b, z for t or s, etc.) The problem was that I did not know what I was saying as I first read it - which would bring me to a halt. And then as I did figure out what English words were intended, I would start to pronounce the words as in English. My original recording was 2x the final file length, so lottsa editing required.

50%. That me: Average, though not mean.

Thanks, Todd

sorry it was so difficult. But the way you read it, it made perfectly sense. :thumbs: So: excellent job.

And yes, my own recordings also usually get cut in half during the editing phase. :?

I would like to read
No 56 The death of King Philip (1676), by Gideon H. Hollister.
hello Cliona (beautiful name, is it Irish ?) welcome to this project. I'll reserve section 56 for you. Since you are new to this project please read the first two posts carefully, you will find some special rules regarding footnotes and disclaimer in there.

Thanks and have fun !

Sonia
Hi Sonia
Thank you for the lovely welcome. Yes my name is Irish.
Here is my recording of section 56 The death of King Philip. I hope I have done it right.

thanks Kristine and sorry for the long delay :) quite busy this weekend.

All three sections pass muster :thumbs: In section 6 I thought I heard "edit for librivox.org" instead of "read for" but that may be my ears playing tricks on me, so I'll mark them all PL ok. The text itself was flawless. Thank you so much.

After all, the Indians weren't so bad since they didn't attack the women, in this case. The English didn't show them as much mercy. An interesting story again and absolutely PL ok, thank you, Jim :)

Here is the link to Section 25 :)
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/_worldstory_volume12_25_tappan_128kb.mp3
thank you so much, for this wonderfully narrated section, Bella. :9: Lovely recording, lovely voice, and flawless reading. This is your very first section for LV if I am not mistaken, well you did it brilliantly and it was such a long section too. :thumbs: So happy to have you read for this project.

As I said the text was flawlessly word perfect, nothing to change there. I feel almost too picky now, but there is a small technical detail that needs amending.

> At the end we leave a standard of 5 seconds of silence, you are exceeding 7 seconds. Could you only cut 2 seconds at the end and reupload, then all is well ?
> And since you are reuploading anyway, please also correct the filename: you used an extra hyphen _ at the beginning, before "worldstory", which is unnecessary. Thank you

Sonia
