Sure, that's fine.

I'm afraid we've flooded our DPL :mrgreen:
Take your time, Kristin. My DPL projects just got bombed too.

Reuploaded Section 71 to include outro:

71 is now PL OK!

Jumping on the rest right now!

Hello!

Here are sections 39, 40 and 41. Phew! The Ship Bells and the Solar System chart were pretty tedious, but in the latter I added the units at the end of each number rather than the column title, to try and make it a little less sleep-inducing. I'd gladly take up 56.

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/1000things_41_fowler_128kb.mp3 [00:06:09]
All three of these are PL OK! For what it's worth, I'd have read it the exact same way.

These things are hilarious to read :D I thoroughly enjoyed the section on Time Difference... it's just a seemingly random list of times in different locations (and I didn't realise how much of a mess it was before Standard Time became a thing!)
Sections 50, 51 & 53 are all PL OK!

Section 52 has a repeat at 02:07 of "The value of the tobacco..."

Section 54 has a repeat of the outro.

Very well read!

Just a question, regarding reading the lists. Should I read each block of four cities, repeating the destinations for each block, or would it be ok to read down the list of destination cities, then all the 8/9 distances from/to this city, all in one go?

Happy either way, just figured I'd check before starting :)

Thanks :)

I'd gladly take 39, 40 and 41 if the above are PL OK :)
These three are all PL OK!

I nearly lost it when the one drowning recommendation was that if they're fighting you while you're trying to rescue them, hold them under the water until they pass out.
