Sorry to have made you list so many errors. I knew the guideline for the Greek but just assumed that they were close enough to the translation. I am thankful though that most of it was passable. I will correct these today. Jim :)

sorry for the late reply, but I have not forgotten you, Jim. Both sections excellently edited and now PL ok.

This brings us down to only 10 more outstanding sections, which used to be my starting point to launch the next book in this series. However, so as not to deter prospective volunteers from our ongoing March challenge (see my signature for details), I decided to wait with the launch till April, when the challenge is closed.

In the spirit of the March Challenge, I'd like to appeal to all readers who still have outstanding sections:

> Muna, Kristine, Abbya, Colleen: please remember your outstanding PL notes
> Abbya, Tomas, Amandine: I hope you can meet your upcoming deadlines
> FrigidBones, Adeline: though your official deadlines are only beginning of April, maybe you can give this project the final push to be catalogued in March still :9:

please all let me know any updates you can manage ! Thank you all !

Sonia

Announcement: I haven't heard back from the reader anymore, so Section 52 is up for grabs again.

Hi Sonia,

This is so difficult!!! It doesn't even feel like I'm reading sentences. I'm working on it though.

thanks for the update, Amandine. And I know it's daunting, kudos for all volunteers who made this project happen. :thumbs:

Here's my last section: https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume14_076_ploetz_128kb.mp3 (18:00)
thank you, Tomas, this was an interesting section. I didn't even know Russia had such a turn-around in emperors after Peter the Great :shock: Every few years there's a new one :lol:

Wonderfully narrated again, only one small cut to make still:

> from 2:02 to 2:08: (p. 409) repeat can be cut: "The Cymen made the boundary between Sweden and Russia... (etc)"

thank you for the fast turn-around, Alan :9: Another interesting section about Italy.

Just one small note to add please:

> at 6:31: (p. 263) could you maybe also make the reference to the family tree here: "see the geneaology p. 261". I think this was included in the previous section already, since the table refers to houses of France and Italy, but it can't hurt to include it once more, especially since this is mentioned in the book at this spot.

Thank you

Sonia
