I can change them at cataloging time; just make sure the final files are the ones in the MW at the end. :)

Chapter 32 is PL OK with one option word change of the narration.

2:02 optional word change – On my left hand walked the Story Girl, her red cap on her jaunty brown head.
Recorded as jauntly

Thanks, Linny. I'll correct that. :D

Not to stress you, Elijah, but to perhaps make it easier for you, I've collected all the corrections you need to make into one post here:

In Chapter 3, could I please get you to rerecord the last line?

"She's just fine," said Felix, enthusiastically. "I never heard anything like her to tell stories."

"She's just fine" is supposed to be a compliment for the Story Girl, so could you please say it with enthusiasm -- to mean "she's great!"
(the way you read it sounds like: eh. she's ok, i guess... :wink: )


Chapter 15:
I have one small request. We have all been pronouncing Cecily with emphasis on the first syllable: SESS-si-ly. Could you please pronounce it that way in the sentence:
"You were pretty glad to leave it all to Cecily then." (0:22)


Chapter 16:
I can't hear the word "of" in this sentence (0:04):
"I wouldn't be much scared of anything REAL. But a haunted house is a different thing."
(Great eerie whisper and shriek in this one!)


In Chapter 19, you left out one line at about 1:06:

"I'm sure I won't sleep a wink to-night," said Felix. (page 13)



Felix, Chapter 22:

00:14
"a menagerie had camped in the orchard and the rhinoceros chased Aunt Janet around and around the Pulpit Stone, but turned into an inoffensive pig when it was on the point of catching her."

"menagerie" is pronounced:
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/menagerie

and "rhinoceros":
https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/rhinoceros?q=rhinoceros+ (I hear plural in your recording)



Felix, Chapter 24:

You are missing some lines towards the end of the chapter. On page 9, please gasp and then shriek:

[THE STORY GIRL, BEV, FELIX, DAN, FELICITY, CECILY: GASP]
[PETER: GIVES A YELP OF PURE TERROR]
[ALL: SHRIEK AS THEN RUN AWAY]

On page 10, please add the line:
"Oh, God, please make Pat better by the morning. PLEASE do."

On page 11, please add the line:
"I wish I knew whether it was the praying or Peg Bowen that cured Pat,"


Felix, Chapter 26:

00:01
"Why, who ever heard of a sermon without a text?"

I can't hear "of".

1:35
But when Peter preaches just such a sermon, it's a very different story."

I can't hear "such".

2:03
Cecily was just as scared as Sara Ray, but she'd more sense than to show it like that."

We've all been pronouncing "Cecily" with a short "e" (sess) and I couldn't hear the word "than", but I did hear two other unclear sounds.

2:22
"Felicity makes enough faces when there's nothing to make faces at,"

We've all be pronouncing the second syllable in "Felicity" with a short "i" (like "lip") -- yours sounded like a long "e" (like "lee").


Felix, Chapter 27:

2:00
Could I ask you please to change the intonation of this sentence for clarity? There should be a pause between "was" and "the":
"The more religious anything was [pause] the more fighting there was about it."


You could put all these corrections together in one file, if that will make it easier.


Plus, I still need your Felix lines for Chapters 28, 29, 30, 31.

Thanks,
TJ

At 0:16 the word "doubtless" is a bit hard to understand. If you'd be willing, I'd like to ask you to re-record the line "But doubtless a fair exchange is no robbery, and Brown Bess is a good mare in her way," It would be best if you just submitted an extra file called "storygirl_bettysherman_extraline" -- as I have already edited your part into the chapter file.

Otherwise, everything else is PL OK. You make a wonderful Betty Sherman.

Thanks,
TJ

Felix Chapter 20 is PL OK

I was able to tweak your recording so that we can hear the "it", so never mind this correction, Elijah.
