So, the bad news is that when I sat down to record tonight, I discovered that my mic doesn't work anymore. I spent the past three hours trying to troubleshoot it, but nada. I'm going to contact customer support tomorrow. Hopefully I can get this figured out/fixed soon. Sorry for the continued delay :|

For 17, does "The Analects, by Confucius - Section I" mean I should read "Book 1" of this?
MW updated, thanks.

Quick update on my mic situation: I contacted Blue's customer support last Thursday. They asked me to email them some information, which I did immediately. I have not heard from them in the meantime. I called again this morning to follow up, and they said they would "expedite" my request. Supposedly this whole thing will take 1-2 weeks.

I'll check in again later this month with another update. Meanwhile, if the project progresses quickly, I would understand if you decide to put my section back into the pool. But I'd still love to record them myself whenever I get my mic back to normal :D

Matt, would you like the outro to be "End of [section title]" or "End of section [#]"? Please clarify in the first post ;)

Hi! I was trying to take a look at these additional essays but I'm not finding them using the link provided. Not sure what I'm doing wrong...

Wrong Bostwick book, sorry. Link should be:
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/33494

End of Section #, Kathrinee. I'll change it.

Alithea, that's okay for now.

Hello,
I would love to read a couple of areas for this thread though when I clicked on the "text" all it did was confuse me as it does not appear to be an easy find , i.e. the first section. Please do help me out here so I can claim a couple of sections?
Thank you,
April

The short work about why we need a library, by Walter Besant, in the first book listed would make a good intro to this project. The last six or seven, are here: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/33494
