Section 06 PL notes:

Very lively reading

At 19:40 you said "unconsciously reverent" should be unconsciously irreverent
At 20:22 there is a needlessly long pause. Was that intentional?
At 34:44 the word well is missing

This book is pretty good. Why aren't more readers signing up?

Section 06 is good to go - PL OK!

It's a mystery to me why some books go quickly and others languish for a long time. But this one is certainly heating up, and I was considering taking a couple of chapters for myself :D

I learned not to mind if more or less readers come, as long as people who come enjoy the book.

Yowch. That's very nearly past the limit of how long a section can go. I think it's 72 minutes. Maybe I better double check.

EDIT: Yes, it looks like 72 minutes is correct. So this one is fine. Just squeaked under the wire!

I believe it is 74, the max that will fit on an audio CD. I think chapter 10 will be even longer.

Hmm. That might be a problem. Stav, were you able to check on chapter lengths for this book so we can know if we need to split some?

Actually it’s 9. 7 was 39 pages; 9 is 43. Probably about 88 minutes.

1:11:20. Yikes.

Your work on this was really admirable! Such a looooong chapter but exciting too

Just a couple of tiny things:
At 32:07 by the way should be "by the by" I wouldn't normally point out something like this because the meaning is the same, but the language is more period to say by the by
56:15 quatorze is pronounced cat-torz
56:50 she should be he
1:01:26 should be I only saw him
1:02:44 you said some charming should be such charming
1:09:52 you said my dear Lashmar's should be my dear Lord Lashmar's...
