Chapter 6. Not especially blood-thirsty, notwithstanding the babes being thrown into the pit of snakes and the step-mother being torn limb from limb...

Thank you, Alan!
This is ready for PL

Hope Lomond still has power!
I did some PL this evening by candle light. :shock:
Oh, have you lost power, too, Larry? I was under the impression that it was pretty much just Texas struggling through this storm. We apparently have our own power grid, separate from the rest of the country, because of course we do. :roll: :? And nothing was adequately weatherized, because this is a one-in-a-century type storm for us.

Anyway, I hope things are back on for you, and that you're staying warm.

I still have power and water, which is more than most people in my area. And no burst pipes yet. (Knock on wood) But it's still unsafe to drive anywhere, and we have at least another 24 hours of this to go...

Greetings -

Lomond still has power and he just got phone service back a few hours ago.

Just speaking electricity, here are a few numbers to consider:

Power has been restored to 489,000 customers.
Five substations were knocked out but have been returned to working status.
6,460 reports of down lines affecting roughly 200 miles of line.
3,000 people currently working on the restoration project with some crews in from Montana and Utah.

No power at my church so I have no idea how much food our community food pantry has lost. We had just received 50 boxes of food from a USDA program the day before the storm.

With the pandemic and then the smoke and fires last fall and now the ice storm, people are getting tired of saying, "when things return to normal". What does "normal" mean anyway?

I will get back to PLing this evening.

Stay safe,

God bless,

Lomond

I should have noted that "Rich Peter the Pedlar" is chapter 26.
I wish the best to those who are dealing with power outages!

I recorded some projects in the dark last night. :shock:

This is the same note I posted for your request on Lightfoot the goat:

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. Let us know how you would like to be credited in the LibriVox catalog - real name, pseudonym or other nickname.

Chapter 24:

As usual, mleigh has done an excellent job of reading. I'd love to give it a PL OK rating, but, alas, it has one small thing that needs attention.

TIME: 2:58 TEXT: "And here am I, wretch that I am, shut up to spin all that" Reading has the word "and" repeated.

Thanks for a good reading of this short chapter, TanG. I have marked it as PL OK.

Let's hear some more from you.

Chapter 7:

A first time reading from CalenB for me.

Overall, a good effort. Just one correction needed and a comment.

TIME: 08:21 TEXT: "was that had strewed flowers about the door-sill." Reading has "door-still" instead of "door-sill".

You might consider reading just a bit slower which will make it easier to follow the story.

Thanks much for this reading. More coming?

Welcome to LibriVox, Sue.

After listening to Chapter 5, I have just one question.

How soon will we hear more from you? Chapter 5 was nicely read in a good, clear voice. Definitely PL OK.

Lomond
Ha! Thank you! I'm glad that you found it nicely read and clear!

I'll probably post Ch. 1 either today or tomorrow. I had planned on recording Chapter 1 before now, but we have been battling power outages here in Texas all week. After going most of yesterday and all night without losing power though, I feel confident enough to try recording today without the power suddenly shutting off and losing everything. Ha! :D

:) Sue

That would be fine!
But, let me be sure --- this is a very long section, esp. for your first recording. But, if you think you want to take it on, I more than willing. Also, please let me know how you want to be listed in the LV catalog -- real name, pseudonym or any nickname you wish.

I'd like to try it, I promise to let you know if it's too much. You can list me as Katharina in the LV catalog. I'm excited!

Okay, then, I've put you in for this. (Hint: it is helpful to request by section number - just makes it easier)
Your finished recording should come out to well over 30 minutes, but it will take you longer than that to record and edit, just so you're prepared. Feel free to read a few pages and submit them for an initial review if you like.

Just click on your name in the MW to view your personal catalog page. This is where you can track all of your LV projects of which I hope there will be many.

WELCOME TO LIBRIVOX :clap:
