Perhaps I get too nitpicky for myself, considering we're all volunteers. But I love literature and audiobooks, and I like to do an excellent job with whatever I'm doing, and I want to make sure I'm doing justice to the rest of the Librivox crew I've just joined.
I neglected to respond to your question about quotes. I've left it to the discretion of each reader how those are handled: Some people like to say the "quote" and "unquote" while others simply use the inflection of their voice to indicate. For myself, I prefer the latter if at all possible.
Certainly in places where the author is indicating that some quoted text is coming, it really isn't necessary to use either.
Thanks for your diligence and attention to detail. I think it matters, and with such diligence in tow, I'm sure you'll have an excellent result. You are in good company on this project: We have had lots of really great readers
