Hey April,
Thanks for moving this project forward. I am cool with my reader name being bloodtom.
I won't be back in my studio till Monday and I will give it a go then.
Its exciting to be a part of librivox after listening for so many years.

Again thanks for your efforts,

Section 9 - PL OK

There are about 10 places where you breathed into the mic, and there was a subsequent
reduction in volume afterwards (e.g. 32:36.5, 35:59.5, 37:39).
There are a number of places where the volume suddenly dips (e.g. at ... 31:11.5, 31:45, 33:03). I imagine these are
corrections. You also need to set the volume to match adjacent speech.

As this is such a long piece, I'm not going to suggest you correct these.

You are certainly correct in this being a long piece,whew. I can do the corrections by using the compressor effect if you would like for me to and hope the sound is evened out more? I did listen to it after the edits though I evidently did not notice the varied discrepancies.

Hello April,
I think I'd leave it alone. The acid test is whether it is comprehensible - and it is. So I don't think you should
do any more to it.
Best,
Adrian

I have not heard of the acid test though I will do as you have suggested and leave it alone as it is comprehensible.
Thank you for that.
