Chapter 21/22 is finished! It is one, large recording. I read it according to the HTML file, which had no separation for chapter 22, or a designation for it. So, I read the whole things as one chapter and called it "Chapter 21"

Thanks so much! A very fascinating read!
That’s fine... I just wanted there to be the option to break it up.

Hello,

I'd be up for reading these two orphans if they're still available?

My Best,

Malachy

Thank you. Please be sure to check back for PL notes.

Do you still want that last section?

PL note for section 09: Please reduce silence at the end to 5 seconds - currently you have 10. Everything else is good to go.

If nobody else has claimed it (I know someone was floating the idea a couple days ago, so it wasn't clear), I'd be happy to take the last orphan section.
so mote it be

I haven’t heard back from the other reader, so it is yours.

Question: :help:

In reading the old English letters, (I'm working on Section 14) there are some abbreviations I'm not sure how to identify. Should I read them in the shortened form, or is there somewhere I should be making sure I have the correct expansion?

For example, "...he shal have for his Reward C.l of Land in Yerely Value to Hym and to his Heyres or Mil. Lib in Redy money..."


Also, :?:
since we're omitting most of the footnotes which simply reference other pages or cite sources, do we simply say "quote" and "end quote" at the beginning and end of each excerpt that quotes a letter or other manuscript? Or is there another trick to making clear when we are reading something other than narration?
And when there are [brackets] within a quote, is that going back to the narrator's voice mid-quote?

aaaand... :?:

I'm trying to determine when to use the original foreign pronounciation (ie, reading "de par de ça" in my best french accent) or when to use the author's english on words that have been culturally stolen/adopted into english (ie, "a declaration that the fiefs and arrière-fiefs...", where I bolded the word I'm indecisive about.)

Generally I assume that if PG prints it in italics, it's best to be read as close as possible to the original accent, while if it's in normal font alongside other english words, it should be read in english...

IF that makes sense, would you agree?

As the author is citing what I'm sure are arcane and obsolete references to both parcels of land and units of currency, no one expects you to do hours of research to find out what they are. Just go ahead and read them as written. As to the editorial brackets, I always prefer to include them in order to elucidate what is often a difficult point. Finally, as to pronunciation of foreign words, it's always best to pronounce them in the original language if possible, even if there is some English equivalent nearby.

I hope this helps, and thanks.

I do appreciate the responses, Rita, thank you!
Perhaps I get too nitpicky for myself, considering we're all volunteers. But I love literature and audiobooks, and I like to do an excellent job with whatever I'm doing, and I want to make sure I'm doing justice to the rest of the Librivox crew I've just joined.
