A terrific job of reading! Very clear and easy to listen to throughout. I have just a few PL notes:

10:15 I heard a phrase and a click, then the same phrase repeated
23:45 I heard "maypole" but expected "Walpole"
25:20 I heard what sounds like throat clearing
27:03 There seems to be missing text: "the butcher seeing..."
32:18 I heard "pantry" but expected "party"
46:45 There seems to be missing text: "We shall never again see..."

I see you did not split sections 5 and 6 at the point called for in the MW. Should you update the MW to reflect what you actually did? Does it matter? I'm pretty fuzzy on what happens once the book is finished so I don't know if the MW descriptions carry forward.
sections 5 and 6 PL OK :clap:

Edit: Very nicely read, by the way. :)

It doesn't matter where chapters are split (it was me who split them anyway 8-) )... There are 2 reasons, 1 technical, the other not. No section can be longer than about 72 minutes (some people say 74)... That is/was the limit of uncompressed cds. Most people seem to use MP3 now and there has been some discussion about changing it, but It's not happened yet.
The other reason is most readers are put off by long sections (after 6,000 words interest plummets), so it is an effort to attract readers. I randomly picked a place to break the sections in case 2 different readers claimed.
As long as the split doesn't lead to passages being omitted or duplicated, I'm fine with readers deciding the break would be more appropriate elsewhere.

Thank you.
Note: You uploaded this as section 5, thereby over-writing the existing section 5. Not a problem, as I can fix it, but just be aware 8-)
