Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

There is a brief paragraph before and after the story (prologue & epilogue?). Should I include or omit those in the reading? Please include them - this is the commentary section and they make up part of the commentary. The end bit really belongs with the next section, but it was easier to subdivide...

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

There are a few exceptions, but usually p.=page and pp.=pages. So do I have to say page number too while speaking the title or do I have to leave it? The passage should start: In addition to the versions of this amusing story referred to on page two hundred and thirty one — all of which will be fou...

Can I please claim 41, 65 and 70 please?
Of course you can!

Sections 26,27,49,50 and 55 are all PL OK - sounds as if there were some tough names in 55!

I have uploaded section 25,
All good - that's PL OK. I sometimes get caught by how differently Americans and Brits pronounce some words!

Also, would be pleased to read section 40, "Tale of Two Kings...." if not taken.
I'd be pleased to listen to it. :)

Re: [LEGENDS] Book of Thousand Nights & a Night (Arabian Nights), Vol 12-mtf

Any thoughts? Thoughts, but no firm answers. Most of the citations in Rees' Cyclopaedia start with the author, so it's likely that Com. Dict. was penned by Postl. This didn't help me find a suitable entry in our University Library catalogue though - the best match I could find was the Compleat Dict...

I think I did this correctly. Here is the test sample https://librivox.org/uploads/tests/1_Minute_Audio_Test.mp3 Thank you for that - you've got a lovely, clear voice and I'm looking forward to hearing you read. I'm afraid there are a few things that still need to be ironed out in the recording pro...
