Hello! Can I please claim sections 52, 53, 54 56, 59, 60? I think these are the remaining unclaimed sections.

Also, I had a look at the HTML version of the text on Gutenberg and it only seems to go up to chapter 49. Am I missing something?

Regards,
Hypatia
YAY! Thanks for claiming! :)

If you just rolled to the end, you probably went too far: that html has the full three books of the work, and the third book finishes with chapter 49. But here we are doing just Book 1. :mrgreen:
:lol: Yes, that's what I did! Thanks!

Leni, there is some parenthesis in chapter 55. Is there a general rule for how to read that ("Parenthesis - end of parenthesis")?
I enjoy reading, and I want to constantly improve. So please, do give me feedback on my tone of voice, my emotion, everything. It's helpful and it's appreciated.

Hey, merendo. No rule there. Personally, what I do is just change voice inflection, but that only works if the parentheses don't run for too long. Otherwise, yes, stating "parenthesis... end of parenthesis" is a good idea. I think you can judge what would make it more understandable to the reader. :D Thanks again!

Alright, thanks. I'll use my best judgement case-by-case :)

I messaged Donavan to ask if he is still interested in completing the sections in this project.

After a week, Donavan hasn't read my message and he hasn't been on the forum since Nov 10. So I am orphaning sections 24 and 25. Any takers?

Hi Leni--

May I claim your orphaned Sections 24 and 25?

Thank you.
Kind regards,
