Dear translator of Boys' and Girls' Pliny: What do you have against short sentences? Pliny didn't have any punctuation. You could've chopped up those sentences any way you wanted to...
On the other hand, thanks for putting in all the punctuation. I can't imagine reading without periods and commas and other ques to tell me when to pause and stop.

Here's section 20, clocking in at a whopping 15:00. https://librivox.org/uploads/mightyfelix/boysgirlspliny4_20_pliny_128kb.mp3

23 is PL OK, just needs the file name changed.
I can take care of that. You can go ahead and mark it PL ok, just leave the note there so I remember to change it.
Thanks! I appreciate you doing that.

PL Notes:

Section 20

The only thing of note here is that the volume is a little low at ~84.5dB. I marked it PL OK because I think this will be repaired on cataloging, but noted it in the MW to be sure it was known.

We do have an automatic process that can normalize volume. But it's only able to do small changes of no more than a couple of decibels. This is why we want it to at least be within that 86-92 range. Since this is the last section, though, I went ahead and downloaded it and adjusted the volume myself to get it in range.

I'll get started cataloguing!
