I've PL'd section three, and it sounds good. At the beginning (~0:20) the chapter number is not stated, only the chapter title, after "please visit: librivox DOT org" where the reading guide says "Say: '[Title in MW]'". Can I PL section 2?

Whoops, I should have read the instructions more carefully. I also assumed that the end notes were left to the discretion of the reader and skipped them. Should I add the end notes?

Yes, add the end notes where they fit the best for the listener :thumbs:

I've inserted the footnote at 18:17 at the first full stop, only a few minutes downstream. :)

Section 2 sounds good. Make sure the name of the speaker is put after "please visit: librivox DOT org" (~0:20), not between "Contemporary Portraits by William Hazlitt" and "This is a LibriVox recording" (~0:10). Also, at ~0:20 there is no need to mention the book title, only the chapter. At the end of the recording (~40:55), the book title and "this is a LibriVox recording..." is not needed, only "end of chapter 2" and the speaker's name, if you wish.

Thank you, LGroden!

I went back and made those edits to the introduction and the closing. This is all fairly new to me, but pieces are starting to fall into place. I appreciate your taking the time with this. Thank you, again!

Here's the link to the revisions for Chapter 2: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/spiritoftheage_02_hazlitt_128kb.mp3

I've spot-PL sections 2 and 3, and everything sounds good now. I can PL section 18, if that works.

Section 18 sounds good. At ~7:26 "or" is repeated in "reality in his mind; or rather his imagination". End note [A] should be read right after it is mentioned in "quoted some lines[A] from the last-mentioned" (~16:23), rather than at the end of the chapter. At the end of the recording, make sure to mention "end of chapter 18" right before your, the reader's, name.
I can PL section 19.
