As many or few as you want, Steven. What you don't do, probably I or perhaps Kevin will read. Don't stress.
Me? Stress? Never... :lol: :lol:

No response to my PM. Hasn't logged on since you last suggested avenue of help for her, so it's not looking good.

Hi, Catherine! Glad you're back. :)

Jane will PL your file officially, but I spotted a couple of easy-to-fix technical bugs right off:

1. The file name should use "05", not just "5" for the section number.
2. The volume is a little soft at 81.71 dB; LV wants to see 86-92 dB if I recall correctly.
3. It's a help to the MC if you post the file duration along with the file name. In this case, your file is 39:23 long.

Easy to fix, but if you want help, just ask.

I haven't listened to your recording yet (we're not supposed to peek before publication) but based on your test recording, I'm looking forward to hearing you read about the Zuider Zee.

Steve, thanks for that.
And if you'd like to PL this one by any chance, I'd be happy for you to do it ;-) I've got a couple of yours to do first.

Oy, me and my big mouth! :lol: :lol: :lol: Okay, Jane, but just this once...

I think Chapter 05 is fine now. I fixed the technical issues noted above, and chopped out a few awkward pauses to improve flow. Volume is now 87.95 dB. I took the liberty of uploading the tuned-up file, but you'll have to update the MW--I don't have access.

So...note to Catherine: PL OK! I hope you'll read many more sections for LibriVox. :thumbs:

Thanks Steve. I think you've ended doing much of this book, for which my hearty thanks.
Nice reading, Catherine. I echo Steven's remarks about hoping you'll do more readings.
Steve, all your sections are PL OK. Such easy PL with your files. Thanks so much! I'll have to get onto the final bit and then we're done.
regards
Jane Bennett
