This should be chapter four, the story of how the binding of feet became popular. Like all good fairytales, it is a little gruesome.
It is my first time recording a piece this long so please let me know if it can be improved.

The Wooden Tablet, Chapter 12. I hope this is all good, it's my first recording (other than the 1 minute test)! Thanks :)

Updated.

https://librivox.org/uploads/kathrinee/chinesewonderbook_11_pitman_128kb.mp3 Here is the redo.

I am trying to track down a decibel checker for iPad because I have not been able to get "checker.dmg" to work on it nor a way on Wavepad to check do. So in the spirit of not holding up production here is a version where I increased do by 5 to bring it in range. If that worked then sweet, but I will continue to find help to get a program to save others work.
perfect!
I could never get the Checker to work when I had a macbook, either. I just relied on the prooflisteners to tell me of any major issues and worked on getting a sense of how the waveforms looked in Audacity when it was about right.

Sweet. Thanks for that insight. I will look at those waveforms too and figure out a way on Wavepad.

Section 6 is PL okay!

I have a few notes for Section 3-- it's a great reading! I just noticed several scratchy/fuzzy noises that interrupt the reading here and there. these are the timestamps I noted where there's a small fuzz:

14:40-14:57
15:12
15:27
15:40
17:16
18:28

for the most part the scratching noises seem to be between words, so you should be able to replace them with a little blank silence to fix it.

I have one PL notes for section 12:

otherwise, it's all very well done!
