Hello again and thank you for your reply.
I was only able to open the text for section 21 & the amount of words, 3845, is more than I am comfortable with so that is not one that I will be claiming.
I did look for a few other sections with no luck in locating them.
Therefore I must thank you and bid you an adieu.

The Frederick Poole article only runs ten pages; 3k words is shorter than some short stories.

I realize that some short stories do have more words. I am not comfortable with too many words though. I appreciate your comment.

Hello! Here is my recording for section 2. I hope it's alright, but of course, let me know if it needs any fixing. Thank you!

Sheesh, after all these years I really should have learnt to stay away from 17th century English... :roll:

Here's section 9, with a suprisingly modern approach on libraries:

Thanks but there's a lot of echo beginning this recording. Wait for full DPL.

Also need the length whenever you post these. This one is 39 minutes and 4 seconds.

Great reading Emily, I enjoyed listening! :clap: Well done on such a long section :clap: :clap:
Two notes for section 2:
00:00-00:50 - there is either echo or (possibly) two tracks of recording that has been collapsed into one. I suggest rereading this part, unless you have a raw file that you tweak and can use.
38:57 - extra outro :) You can use either outro, just pick the one you like most.
Everything else is spot on!

Please fix, save with the same name, upload and post again. Looking forward to listen to you again!

Section 9 is PL OK! Nicely read, Ava, doesn´t sound like the 17th century English is bothering you at all :thumbs:
