P.S. My sister's bookbinding website is here at Some Odd Pages, if you'd like to take a peek at what sort of things a bookbinder might do nowadays.

Sections 4 and 5 PL OK.

I love books and what I hear you reading is almost painful at times. :cry:
Cheers,
Ava.

Thanks, Ava!

Yes, when I read about antique book pages torn out to use as toilet paper --- :shock:

Thank you Maria! I listened to the last two just yesterday (PL OK of course, had to laugh about some of his opinions on the bookworm!).

I still have a few holey socks that require my attention, so I'll get back to you shortly. :D

Edit: PL OK on section 8 as well! This wasn't as bad as I had imagined from what he had to say in chapter 1. I do like the Dante imagery he is conjuring up though :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

Thank you, Ava! Yes, he seemed to be very opinionated about both bookworms and bookbinders!
I have the last 2 chapters read, just awaiting some free time to edit them.

And Chapter 10 - Servants and Children - (length 19:19)

He does protest too much about curious women meddling with his library to dust it - I wouldn't say Bluebeard's secret was entirely innocent as he claims!

Well, that wraps up this little project! Thank you for helping me through it!

For a moment I was wondering if he was talking about a different Bluebeard... :lol:

Final chapters PL OK! Thanks for reading this, this was fun! :D
Cheers,
Ava.

Thank you, Ava!
It's an hour and a half to midnight here, so we're watching some "Dr Who" and waiting for the stroke of twelve to ring the doorbell, throw some confetti, and shout "Happy New Year". I guess it's already tomorrow morning where you are, so I'll wish you a Happy New Year already!

And Happy New Year to you also in Australia, Anne!

EDITED TO ADD:
I see that this has already begun to go into the catalog! Thank you, Anne! I just posted the cover over in the covers thread.

I had it ready to send and asked Ava to hit the button if it was PL OK - I've now finished and added the cover. It gets us off to a good start for 2019 as it seems to use my time in the catalogue so I have 2 catalogued for this year already :D . Both non-fiction which is good, adds to my listening list. Hope you are having a good celebration and best wishes for the new year :9:

Anne
