I have assigned that section to you, but please be aware that it is a very long chapter. As this is your first recording, you may wish to “cut your teeth” on something more manageable. This claim will be held for two months, so you have plenty of time.
Please ask if you have questions.

That is an excellent point. May I please swap to Chapter 5: The Mystery of the Temple (continued)? Once I’ve got a recording under my belt I can reconsider Chapter 1.

Of course… provided no one else has claimed it in the meantime.

Thank you.

We don’t ask for perfection on pronunciation, just “understandable “

Hello! May I please have sections 7 and 8? And, should I plan to split the chapter at a natural point somewhere close to the middle?

That sounds good--otherwise about half and half.
