This one was a bit too fast for me. Changing tempo -5 % worked for me.

Thank you very much. I've made the change and re-uploaded and changed the time listed. I had done a pre-emptive 5% reduction on that chapter before editing, so next time I'll try 10% at the start and see how that does.

Chapter 4 is rather darker than the others so far, and is largely concerned with the lack of hunting regulations in the Adirondacks at the time. I tried again to read as slowly as possible, and did a preliminary 10% reduction in speed, but this made some parts sound too slow to me, so I put it back up 4%. I also did some spot reductions in tempo for individual sentences during the editing process.

PL OK. Yeah, that was evocative.

The pace was good!

I've uploaded Chapter 5, which is by far the longest of the book. I did slow it down both before and (in spots) during editing, so I hope it will be okay. Thank you very much.

Chapters 6 and 7 are uploaded. I won't be ready to do Chapter 8 for a week anyhow, so please don't feel like you need to PL these right away. I know you must have a lot of things to keep up with as a MC and all.

Chapter 8 is uploaded. I did the same tempo changing as in the last few chapters, so I hope it will be an okay speed. I have written a short summary and put it in the MW. If you have any thoughts on what should be done to it I'd be happy to follow them. Thank you very much for all of your help and especially for introducing me to the Change Tempo option.

I'll listen tomorrow, and if there are no PL notes, will catalog it then as well. :)
