I was thinking of doing a book that would be about 25 sections long if I break up each section into twenty minute reads. So far this has been my favourite method.

However, I could easily do the work in 10 sections if I preferred longer recordings.

Is there any rule on this? Could I hypothetically do fifty sections in 10 minute recordings if a work was long enough?

The limit on sections is 255. Archive cannot handle more than that. :)

If you want to break them into 20 minute sections or even 5 minute sections, you can do so, no problem. Your listeners might get a bit cheesed at the constant LV intro on short sections, but there's nothing to say you cannot do that.
