Good Evening,

If I'm allowed to, could I also claim sections 11 - 14?
There were a few more volunteers who signed up to record, and I believe this would be a great reading for them (granted you're okay with having different voices for different recordings - this is an approved group account, but I don't know if having different voices will cause issues).

Thanks :)

That's the thing about group projects, they should have different voices reading the different chapters. You are allowed to claim sections 11-14, thank you for claiming them!
