Section 50 is available for review.

The recording is 22m 10s long.

Note on one of the names: at one point the name "Wierus" appears. I pronounced this WEERus. As it turns out, it's a Latinized form of a Dutch name and should probably be pronounced VEERus. I can correct this if you think it's necessary.

Thanks!

It's probably not necessary to change the pronunciation. The name only occurs once in the book, and most people won't research it to know its origin. ;)

Hey, I was just checking in to let you know that I'm planning to read Track 57 soon and haven't forgotten about it. It's just that my throat is kind of sore right now and I wanted to wait until it clears up. Thanks!

Thanks!

10:29 - "What superiority the mere fact of living-on gives to the dullest dog!" - this sentence has a stumble in it that makes it hard to understand.

If you record further in this project, please note the name is Pisistratus (pih-SISS-tra-tiss). I kept hearing pih-SASS-tra-tiss. :)

Just the one edit. Don't worry about the name pronunciation in that chapter. (There are too many to fix, and often the fix makes the file worse than just leaving it alone.) ;)

I've put you in for section 73. Thanks!
