and thank you, April. Super that you are part here as well. You have been reading for every book of the series so far. :thumbs:

Just a question: Section 128 doesn't exist. Did you mean another number ? :hmm:

Here is section 43:
https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume10_043_tappen_128kb.mp3
length: 6.52
wohoo, already one section in, thank you, Ruth :)

interesting report of a contemporary writer about the ceremony and nicely narrated. :9:

I only found one tiny omission in the intro disclaimer, could you add that please ?

> at 0:06: "of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales" – you forgot to include Ireland here.

> and careful with the filename: Tappan is written with an 'a' in the final syllable. Could you change the name please as well before reuploading ?

The rest is flawless. Thanks

Sonia

72 is a good substitute for the imagined, :wink: 128.
I have been & still am pleased to be part of this project.

what a quiet and sensitive reading, Alan. I liked it very much :9: Totally PL ok. This is the first PL ok for this project :thumbs:

Sometimes the pauses between the stanzas were a tad too long for me, but I think, as the poem has such a quiet overall pacing, this is not too disturbing here. So we can leave them in.

Thank you

Sonia

Here is Section 3--I am the worst at the Scottish accent, so why do I keep choosing selections requiring a Scottish accent? :hmm:

uncle Adam all over again ? :lol: thank you Jim. I will listen to it tomorrow, promised. Looking forward to it. And as long as it's understandable, it's fine for me.

Oh and right at the start a word of caution about the file names. They need to have 3 digits this time, we have over 100 sections. So: 003 here. But no need to reupload unless you have other errors. Just careful for your next sections ;)

I have done these changes and have re-entered the file above. And upon re-listening, I am not sure it is clear what is being said. If you need me to orphan this one, I won't mind. Jim

Hi, Kitty!

I'll scoop up all your 1 pagers:
8,9,11,15,16,20,24,29,34,38,42 aaaaaaaannnddd 45

I've set a challenge (a stern suggestion to myself) to record something every day (within reason) and this will really get me started (at some point this week). :lol:
And verily did the chains fall off all manner of things which sorely needed chaining.
I’m ->superpsyched<- for the opportunity to join this community, learn all I can and read all I can.

a page a day so to speak ? Sounds like a cool endeavour and one that is feasible. Now you have peer-pressure, having so openly set your challenge into the forum :mrgreen:

Welcome to this project, Erin, and thank you for taking part. Looking forward to your bits drizzling in. You have claimed many paintings, so please read the second post carefully, where I pointed out the special instructions for this project on how to correctly say the intro for those.

Thanks and have fun

Sonia
