An excellent recitation! Really very good.
I found two tiny glitches and one foreign pronunciation for which I can give guidance -- and did so at length, maybe too much length.

3:27 heard " put back into [second] place" the word second is missing

12:35.5
This is NOT really an error to your most excellent recitation, but something I'm sharing from my youth:
"Du bist wie eine Blume” is a very famous poem by Heinrich Heine set to music by many composers.
The proper pronunciation of this German phrase is:
Doo beest Vee eye-nuh bloom-uh...

Here is the German continuation:
Du bist wie eine Blume,
So hold und schön und rein;
Ich schau’ dich an, und Wehmut
Schleicht mir ins Herz hinein.

In English:
You are like a flower,
So sweet and fair and pure;
I look at you, and sadness
Steals into my heart.

18:50 heard "Harriet STAYED at the sudden revelation"
s/b "Harriet STARTED at the sudden revelation"

I really enjoyed your reading. DO MORE!

Hello, Htar,
Thank you for volunteering to this project. It is not an easy one. I'm glad to see that you've recorded some other, simpler, sections in other projects. So I am assigning you Section 24. After you've recorded, uploaded and perhaps corrected anything mentioned in PL Notes, perhaps you'll want to take the other 2 parts of that chapter.

I look forward to receiving your recitation.

PL NOTES for section 21

You must have had a rough day yesterday, Brize!
your Section 21 has no INTRO. Gotta have that on every file.

And, sections 24 and 27 are both already assigned, 25 and 26 are not (yet) taken.
It seems logical that when someone asks for the first Section in a chapter that they will also take the other sections in the chapter; however 24 and 27 were asked for by different readers, so that can't happen with Chapter 12. If you'd like to take on Section 25 and/or 26 please let me know.

Section 32 - Chapter 16 part 1 -- PL OK!

This section is quite a different turn from the rest of the book.
We get philosophy and Group Psychology.

And, this excellent reading is definitely PL OK!
Thank you Lisa.

section 33 - PL NOTES.
At the start of the file there should be no more than one half or one second. Please nip a couple of seconds off the start of the file.

This section is a continuation of Chapter 16 part 1 insofar as DHL is still philosophizing.
Example 1 in the first 2 or 3 minutes:
But the greatest of great individuals must have deep, throbbing roots down in the dark red soil of the living flesh of humanity. Which is the bitter pill which Buddhists and all advocates of pure _Spirit_ must swallow.

Example 2 near the end of the file:
Let’s know our own mind. We’ll unite with the World’s Workers.
Which doesn’t mean we’ll take the hearts out of our chests to give it Brother Brown to eat.

Great reading, Lisa! I am thoroughly enjoying this chapter.

Confused about Section 33 remarks - when I just signed on I saw your note about it being the wrong link from July 14 - but below it appears you listened to it. I will trim the start to 1/2 second and reupload.

Thanks.
Lisa

Section 33 - I cut the silence at start to under 1 second and reuploaded.

Let me know if all is well. Will look now to see if there's more to be read on this work.

Thanks!
