Ok, you should be all set to go. I didn't see any mention of your already having a DPL picked out, so I took the liberty of adding a tilde to the subject line to show that you want one. If I am wrong in this, you can always remove the tilde yourself. And do let me know, in that case, so I can add that person in!

Let me know if you need anything more!

Thank you for getting everything set up. Sorry I messed up the link. I don't have a DPL so thanks for the tilde. I will be getting started soon.

No need to apologize. Just so long as we have something usable. :) We can wait here for a day or two to try to pick up a DPL.

Hi InTheDesert ,
It would be wonderful having you DPL for me for this interesting project. Coming in near the end of the volumes, I haven't read/listened to the previous ones but I am enjoying becoming more familiar with her work.

I have the first 4 sections up. Would you prefer to grab them from the Magic Window or would you like me to post the links in the thread here?

Would you please add our new DPL to the MW priviledges, please.

Thankyou! I have a program that checks and downloads them automatically for me so, provided the section is section to Ready for PL, I will know automatically :)

Well, that is a tad embarrassing. I know its been a while since I recorded last, but to miss the disclaimer, that is just downright sad. :oops: :roll: Promise to get in the groove soon.

And just when I've changed the last time and flipped to "Ready for spot PL" my hand slid across my touch pad and it looked for a minute like I had just erased the first four sections. After a minor heart stoppage, I took a breath and noticed I had just moved the rows to the bottom of the MW and I could move them back myself, thank the Lord. :clap:

So you've got the disclaimer in there now which is excellent, but the intro doesn't match the first post. I think Section 2 should go something like this:
"Chapter 1 of Home Education Series Volume 4: Ourselves, Book II. Self Direction, by Charlotte Mason. This LibriVox recording is in the public domain." "Part I Conscience Section I Conscience in the House of Body Ch I The Court of Appeal"
My understanding is that there needs to be some clear numbering at the start so that people can roughly tell where they are in the audiobook without needing to read it from a screen.
