Thank you! This is very clear and well read. Two minor PL notes:
Please add 2 more seconds of silence to the ending. (I think the 5-second ending silences are there because some listening apps cut off the last few seconds of audio files.)
I think this recording would also benefit from some mild noise reduction to eliminate the background buzz that I hear, though that's a suggestion not a requirement.
Thank you again.
Joanna

This is just delightfully read! :clap: :clap: Hoping I can learn to read like that after some time and practice...
There's just one issue,at 3:15: I heard "we have actions to weigh, and need that taste *to* conduct that delicate sense of propriety which gives grace to virtue..." and found that sentence puzzling; the text has "we have actions to weigh, and need that taste *in* conduct, that delicate sense of propriety, which gives grace to virtue..."

Dear Leni,

I want to claim sections 10 and 11 of this book. This is my first time ever to record for Librivox. The name I would like to appear in the catalogue is Ejaz Siddiqui. Hope we will have fun doing this,

Thank you for your interest in this project.
We do, however, request that our new readers first complete a one-minute test recording to check out all of your technical specifications and any reading issues.

New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!

Among the useful information there you will find instructions for completing your test recording. Once you have the "OK" on that, post again here and you are free to record for this project.

I thought I had already sent this - maybe i sent it to the incorrect thread ! I have rather a lot of projects going at the one time so that is entirely possible !

Anyway here is it.
