Re: How to do Librivox as a new parent?

It's worth taking on proof-listening or editing or making CD covers until things settle enough for you to start recording. That will keep you involved and interested.

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Gill, I may have made a mistake (and I have to leave home in 2 minutes, so can't double-check), but I think your section 88 is a reading of a wrong block of text. I have a note that Section 88 should start with "In order to arrive at a correct estimate as to the number of the really ..." Where your ...

Re: SOLO London Labour Volume III -ans

Section 86 PL ok. The interviews, specially the second one, give a good picture of how easy it is to make the shift in the human pattern of thinking, of dealing with life. We accept ours as normal and reasonable, but it's possible to have a very different outlook and feel that that's the most sensib...

Section 85.

Section 84 PL okay.

Re: Pronunciation help: all languages

Could someone speak the following French line for me, please? It's from a Sherlock Holmes story.
Un sot trouve toujours un plus sot qui l'admire.
Thanks,
