When you get to 18 you'll note that a page (252) needs some help...

I've copied the text from Project Gutenberg from the bottom of 251 and all of 252:

"....suit him that Catholic record will have to “go 'way back and set down,” as the ballad says. Listen to the boastful song of Mrs. Eddy's organ, the Christian Science Journal for March, 1902, about that year's revamping and half-soling of Science and Health, whose official name is the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, and who is now the Official Pastor and Infallible and Unerring Guide of every Christian Science church in the two hemispheres, hear Simple Simon that met the pieman brag of the Infallible's fallibility:

“Throughout the entire book the verbal changes are so numerous as to indicate the vast amount of time and labor Mrs. Eddy has devoted to this revision. The time and labor thus bestowed is relatively as great as that of—the committee who revised the Bible.... Thus we have additional evidence of the herculean efforts our beloved Leader has made and is constantly making for the promulgation of Truth and the furtherance of her divinely bestowed mission,” etc.

It is a steady job. I could help inspire if desired; I am not doing much now, and would work for half-price, and should not object to the country."

It seems that you had to draw on your audiobook recording training to go through the long list of occupations for "intelligent people" as he puts it. :lol:

Here are my Chapter 9 notes:

0:33 -> "to be had in the market at ground-floor rates."
door is said instead of floor

1:12 -> "flitting through the desert places of his mind."
Does he mean desert as in a sandy biome or desert as in deserted? These two words would have different pronunciations and I don't know which one fits best.

3:45 -> "competently think out a political or"
of is said instead of out

7:39 -> "and they are all capable thinkers-"
the word all is dropped from the sentence

8:13 -> "would not be a scary apparition. But they don't; they"
There is glitchy audio in this area, it should be re-recorded.

The same thing as above happens at 9:10 -> "it produces its own kind; and not by intellectual"

Once again this audio glitch occurs at 12:57 -> "one hundredths of the human race, and must be reckoned"

That is all,
ELDN

Great job reading Book 2 Chapter 2!

Just one thing:

11:22 -> " placidly by; as placidly as if she did not"
if is dropped from the sentence

That's it for me, for now,
Elias

Chapter 12 has a thing or two:

Book 2 Chapter 3

3:35 -> "should tell me he wrote Mr. Dooley's books,"
Dr. is said instead of Mr.

4:59 -> "in the virgin passages from her pen already"
of is said instead of from

9:14 -> "gathers fresh forms and strange fire from"
form is said instead of forms

9:18 -> "ashes of dissolving self, and drops the world."
itself is said instead of self

I'll be doing a lot of PLing for the next week!

Excellent job with chapter 13, I believe!

Book 2 Chapter 4

3:06 -> "-for her "instruction in Christian Science"
instructions is said instead of instructions

That is all,
