Hi Leni.

Here are the PLing for chapters XVI, XXII and XXIII.
Sorry for taking the PL for Chapter XXIII without warning, but as I saw it was ready for PLing, I did it. And I could see that Donavan was able to manage the sound much better, for it was, before, low and muffled. :)


Discourses on The First Decade of Titus Livius – Book 1 – Niccolò Machiavelli

Chapter XVI – Perfect – Flawless :clap:

Chapter XXII – Sound low and muffled
0:30 – read: What is best to be noted – the word “best” isn’t in the text at Project Gutenberg
Written: What is to be noted

Chapter XXIII – OK
Sound much much better than in the previous chapter (XXII) :thumbs:
I'll redo XXII. Thanks

Hey, Donavan

Please, don't redo it! It is really not necessary! As I said, the word is just a small thing and doesn't fall into the Standard PLing requirements. Only if you wanted to, you could amplify a bit the recording. But you don't need to redo the whole thing, not at all - it is better to use that time recording another section! :D

Ciufi,
Sections 17 and 18 are PL OK. Very nice readings. Thank you.

Leni,
Please check the MW link for section 17. I wasn’t able to download it but picked it up from the thread.

Thanks, merendo!
If you, or the PL, could - I'd appreciate some feedback about my reading. I do feel a bit self-conscious about the emotions which I convey in my speaking. I fear, it all sounds a bit dull and perhaps boring. Any suggestions?

Merendo,
Chapter 14 is PL OK.

I don't find your reading dull or boring. I like the change of emotion and timber. For my ear, you are a little fast but that's me. It takes me a moment to absorb what I'm hearing. I'm sure other listeners would say you are right on target for them.

Hi, I'm new to LibriVox! I'm happy to PL Chapter 14. It seems like it hasn't been PLed yet. This will actually be my first time PLing :) So excited.

EDIT: Whoops, just saw that someone has already PLed it. Never mind!
