Can I have all from The Cuscuses (whatever animal is that :lol: ) to the end? Sections 64 to 67.
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

I had to find out about those cuscuses... so there is section 64, duration 21:02

By the way, the author of this book has a very nice writing style - easy to read, lively and interesting. Definitely not one of those science books that make you shudder at every page-long sentence.

Thanks, Kristine! Yes, I know, I was pleasantly surprised myself. I am even considering putting the second volume up for reading when this one is done. :)

Leni, in the first post the instructions for filename and the example don't quite match up. I'm thinking you'll want to correct that before more files come in. (The '1' after livinganimals.)

Thanks,

I'm a little confused on how to introduce the recording of Section 2

I was going to proceed as follows:
"The living animals of the world, Volume 1: Mammals,
by Charles Lewis Cornish, editor
Chapter 1 Apes, Monkeys, & lemurs.
Section 2: The Gorilla, The orang-utan, & The Gibbon.

The Gorilla etc as per the book
Is this OK or would you preferr something else?

I also wasn't sure about the intro. So I only said "The octodonts" as this is the beginning of my chapter in the book, even though in the MW the title is much longer. I hope that was correct.

Here is the section on bunny's larger family. The rabbit gets only a few lines as an afterthought as it is apparently "too well known" :lol: what a let-down.

Recording time: 10:13 min.

as promised, I will take the section on foxes next then :) (Section 22)
