Ah, yes - I didn't think of trying to stay within the time limit. That would definitely make a difference on a project like this! 8-)

Downloading to spot check. If I don't post about it, assume it's PL OK. ;)

Hi :)

I was thinking of reading a lecture from 'The Chemical History of a Candle'.

The text is here: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14474

Will this be boring enough? :lol:

Maybe, or I might find it fascinating! 8-)

It has been recorded for LV before in its entirety: https://librivox.org/the-chemical-history-of-a-candle-by-michael-faraday/
But that doesn't mean you can't do it here!

Science is not boring just because it has numbers in it... :roll:

Anyway, I wanted to suggest the appendix of this lovely book:
https://archive.org/details/storyofcairo00laneiala

I mean the "Table for converting the Hijra Years into Anni Domini". Numbers. Lots of them. Pages and pages and pages...

(I'm not doing it myself. I have enough to do with the rest of the book. :lol: )
Cheers, Ava.
