What should be exciting sure seemed tedious, with all the archaic language. I'm sure I failed to discern what were typos and arcane words I couldn't translate.....

I also wanted to ask -- do you read the endnotes? I haven't run into this as a reader for Librivox yet. I've mainly been reading fiction. Thanks! Marcia

Thank you, 3 and 4 are yours.
As to the notes, usually if it is not specified in the instructions, then it is left to the readers discretion to read them or not. In this book I'd say - just ignore them. They rather interrupt the story, in my opinion.
However, if there is really something useful in the note, some further explanation etc that you think would be really worth giving to the listeners of the book - then you can choose to read it. Say "Footnote"... then read the note and say "end of footnote" and go on with the text in the place where the note interrupted you.
Notes like "from book A" or "see chapter X" really are not worth reading in any case.
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.
