No , many experienced soloists run 2 solos at the same time especially if one of them is a solid read, and the other more light relief. I wouldn't recommend a new soloist did it, I think with the first solo it's good to get it finished and catalogued ASAP so they know that spot in the middle when most readers think - why did I ever start this, I'll never get it finished
I haven't read Flinders reports - just the stuff we did at school. We seemed to draw maps of Australia with routes of the explorers every year :D

I'm onboard whether you decide to it concurrently or not.

Hi Anne and David -

I've read enough. It looked really boring every place where I dove in, so I won't be reading Flinders Terra Australis.

Thanks for your support.

The only thing I have read about Flinders was "My Love Must Wait" which fortunately is not PD :D

Hi --

More uploads

Section 11 (Chpt 9)
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/queensnecklace_11_dumas_128kb.mp3
6:32.5, 89.6 dB

Section 12 (Chpt 10)
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/queensnecklace_12_dumas_128kb.mp3
8:22.4, 89.6 dB

We are about 24% of the way through the pages but only about 11% through the numbers of Chapters. Must be plenty of short chapters ahead of us.

Thanks for listening.

Hi -

Sections 15-16 are uploaded for listening.

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/queensnecklace_15_dumas_128kb.mp3
4:03.0, 90.2 dB

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/queensnecklace_16_dumas_128kb.mp3
6:52.2, 90.3 dB

This novel was first published in serialised form. These two chapters flow together as though they should have been one; perhaps Dumas was running a little late for his deadline!

Cheers

15-16 PL OK.

I sort of agree. Maybe he intended chapter 16 to go in a different direction.
