Nice job, thank you Craig. The text itself is great! No corrections needed.

However, please double check the intro and outro given. Since this book isn't set up in chapters, I'm not using chapter numbers in the introductions. Simply "Topic 2, second paper," please. (I did just now realize that I forgot to edit the outro in the first post to reflect that, but I've corrected it now.)

Intro is all good! However, "Chapter 8" is still present in the outro here. Remove that and we're golden! :)

I've just finished recording my own section for this, and when saving it, I realized that, by removing section 0, we'll now need three digits in the file names. Luckily only one file has been submitted thus far, and I've just edited the first post to show how files should be named from here on out.

Since section 8 is already PL ok, MaryAnn, could you fix the file name whenever you get the chance?

Also, I'd been thinking of amending the book summary to include a list of the topics, since most of them are far too long to put in the title sections. Some listeners may only want to listen to certain topics, so I'd like to make it easy to see which is which. So I went ahead and added that in. Please let me know if everything looks ok there. I hope it won't make the book summary too clunky.

Devorah,

I mocked up the catalog page with the new summary, and I think it looks fine. Very informative for those who might not understand what the book is about from the title. (When I first read the title, I was expecting fiction rather than academic papers.)

As to the section numbers, 8 is fine as is. I can add the extra 0 when I'm cataloging it. The real worry is if renumbering means that two sections will have the same number - that can't/shouldn't happen, but the extra 0 is not a big deal at this point.

MaryAnn

I've uploaded section 1. I'll need it PLed by someone else, of course, but there's no rush. I'll wait and see who else this project attracts before advertising.

Thanks Craig!

Yes, I'm very interested in hearing the rest of it. It has been slow so far, but I'm confident that at LV, if you launch it, readers will come. :wink:

Edit: And yes, Talks for the Times looks good as well. I think I posted it in Book Suggestions when I recorded this section.

Hello,

May I record sections 23 & 24?
