Thanks!

Yes, I would have requested the quotes to be read, so your executive decision stands. :) (And thanks for pointing out my typo/brain fart.) :roll:

32 and 33 are yours. And no, not strange; we choose the chapters that interest us more. ;)
Here is 33: https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/selfhelp_33_smiles_128kb.mp3

Hello! I'd like to claim section 20 please :)

Noticed that the chapter opens with French & German quotes - should I attempt to read these as well? Or are native speakers preferred? Thank you.

You're in for 20!

Yes, please do the best you can on the foreign languages. Google Translate helps a lot, IMHO, to get a good feel for how it should sound.

Hi TriciaG from across the lake,

I've got a chapter from "My Danish Sweetheart" to do,
but if you don't mind waiting a few days, I would be happy to read section 5.

Back in my 40s ( 30 years ago now! ) my then wife and I would try to get to Toronto at least once a year for the great theatre and and opera productions ( not to mention the unbeatable French Onion Soup. )

Best,
wilkie
