Re: [FULL] Love Stories Volume 3-ag

PL Notes On The Gulls Road Alayna, this was a highly stylized, sentimental story, which you read with great charm and grace. Despite its length, it held my interest throughout. A few things you should attend to on future recordings, is the frequency of "airplane flyovers" which occurred every five ...

Section 12 is PL OK. Can't even tell where you made those edits. Bravo! :thumbs:

Thanks for the offer to PL. I will shortly be putting up another Carnegie project, "Triumphant Democracy". Be on the lookout for it over in Readers Wanted, Books as soon as this one catalogues.

PL Notes Section 12 Wealth, Part 2 I found Carnegie's comments on wealth vs Socialism very enlightening. In his Autobiography , (Episode 15) he introduces his wife and explains how they spent some of his great wealth upgrading and refurbishing the remote, enormous, crumbling Skibo Castle in Scotlan...

PL Notes Mrs. Knolly's PL OK Wow! What a love story! I need to look up that glacier paper, if it is real. Thanks for a great reading, Lisa . Your voice is crystal clear. TIP: A suggestion for future readings, pauses 3.5 seconds or more generally seem too long and by 5 seconds like at 9:11 and 20:25...

The River Stairs is PL OK. Thank you. Talking stairs, how unique! And was that splash at the end what I thought it was?

Re: [group]Coffee Break Collection #29 - DOGS - lt

PL Notes A Dog Day Hi Grant, what an unusual and delightful story! You did a great job bringing out the humor. Alas, I have a few notes for you to attend to: 4:23 missing word: " Memo: to take it out of her kittens later." 9:08 missing text, and two time errors: You read 8:10 and 8:20, but it reall...

Re: [group]Coffee Break Collection #29 - DOGS - lt

Lynne, I found these dates on G. B. Burgen, and presume it's the same author.
G. B. Burgin
(1856—1944)
I don't see anyone else online by that name. He isn't coming up in our database. Should I add these dates to the metadata?

Re: [group]Coffee Break Collection #29 - DOGS - lt

PL Notes on Fuzzles In several instances, you read P_______ as Pblank . It sounds weird. Not sure why authors do this so often but many readers handle proper nouns like this as: My friend P. From the town of H. On the B bridge etc. Not asking you to change it, but you could probably edit out the "b...

Re: When is the Next Zoom Meeting?

You know---and I hate being serious about anything---but balancing LivriVox volunteerism and family commitments and employment would be an interesting topic to add to a zoom discussion. I don't know how people do it. When I was working, 'free time' was spent mowing the lawn. I read at night tucked ...
