Ready for PL:

28 - 4:10 https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/livinganimals2_28_various_128kb.mp3
Notes on section 28:

Very articulate reading :D

A couple of notes:

You correctly labelled your file section 28, but said:

"section 27..." at the beginning
and
"end of section 27..." at the end
Interesting, but baffling mistake! Corrected version: :D

Section 28 PL OK! Thank you

Thank you, Rita.

Here's section 5 -

Track length: 7:58
Good reading Phil! I would just ask you to pare some time off the start. It's currently just over the 1 second mark, and we're not supposed to exceed that. A good half second would be perfect.

Thanks,

Great reading!
One little note:

At 9:14 you said "in color" should be "in contour"

It figures that I would mess up a simple word like that, instead of something like "spheroidal." :roll:

Time still 19:18.

Hello! Here's Section 6 - Grebes and Divers, Penguins and Tube-Nosed Birds. Oh, Professor Moseley...please stop beating up the penguins.

Length: 14:20

Always happy to edit if need be :)

Had a lot of fun with this one - would love to pick up another section if possible.

Think I could also grab #36 - Eels and Cat-Fishes?
