Hi Elizabeth,

Keep numbering the filenames in numerical order based on the section numbers in the MW. When you get to Volume 2, at the beginning of your intros and outros, say Volume 2, chapter 1... ; volume 2 chapter 2...; etc. and similarly when you get to Volume 3, say Volume 3, Chapter 1..., Volume 3, Chapter 2..., etc.

If you wish, you can add "end of Volume 1" and "end of Volume 2" at the end of the appropriate chapters. That is up to you.

More DPL Notes!

Chapter 3 is PL OK!

For Chapter 4 spot check:
22:04 - at the end of the newly inserted line, there a clicky noise that makes it feel edited in. Can you fix this?
Chapter 5:
0:59 - A bit of a clipping transition, can this be smoothed out?

20:58 - "I am sure most of my friends are *more* anxious to stay than go." ["more" was missing from reading.]
Chapter 6:
0:46 - "[...]curtains, and put *by* all the things in the best bed-room ["by" was missing from reading.]

9:17 - disruptive noise similar to a door closing, please edit out!

9:35 - another noise to edit out
Chapter 7:
1:06 - disruptive noise similar to a door closing, please edit out!

4:48 - pause needed between paragraphs

6:45 - Clicking noise between sentences

16:07 - "[...]who if he had *had* to work for his bread [second "had" was missing from reading.]

I'm going through fixing the things right now, thank you for listening! The only thing is in chapter 7, at the sixteen minute mark my second 'had' is in there, it's just spoken quite quickly (gosh dang my Scottish accent!) - my microphone makes it horrendous to try and reinsert sections so I'm hoping it will be okay left as it is!
Also at 1:06 I have tried to quieten the noise of the door as much as possible (I must just live in a house of door slammers!)
Please let me know if this is okay by you, thanks again!

Hurray!

Chapter 9:
4:57 - distracting breathy click

11:12 - "'you shall not be obliged to make martyrs of *yourselves*,' said Miss Osborne" ["yourselves" read as "yourself"]

12:49 - distracting breathy click
SPOT PL for Chapter 8:

Where you replaced "comparison" with "companion" at ~25:12, please make sure you are cleaning up the background noise with your new edits.

I shall get to fixing those, thank you! Sorry about the change of mic quality, for some odd reason it honestly sounds different everytime I try to record anything even with noise cleaning, but I have recorded that section again and have tried to make it as unobtrusive as possible, hopefully I'll learn more editing tricks as I get better! :-)
