Yep. Do you want to do that, or should I? And thanks for picking this up. I don't think we've worked together before, but I'm looking forward to it. This book is unlike anything I've done in the (albeit short) past.

I just added a ~ before the book title in the subject line of the first post. That will let everyone know we are looking for a DPL. As we are rather busy right now, an offer may not come in until after you have posted an audio file. An interesting book though.

Thanks much! I'll try to record some things from the book in the next few days and get them posted.

1
I would suggest two different ways one could handle the book/chapter issue (that both should be mentioned) in the intros/outros.

At the beginning of the intros say, Book First, Chapter One (or Chapter One of First Book); then Book First, Chapter Two; Book Second, Chapter One;...; Book Fourth; Book Fifth. At the end of each intro give the title. In the outros give the book and chapter numbers (e.g. End of Book First, Chapter One).
or
Use the section numbers, e.g. Book First, Chapter One would be Section 1; Book First, Chapter Two would be Section 2;...; Book Fifth would be Section 18. At the beginning of the intro you would give the Section # (e.g. Section 1) while at the end of the intro you would say Book 1, Chapter 1 followed by the title. In the outro you would say, end of section #.

In the title field of the MW, the Book # could be mentioned only at the beginning of each book (perhaps the same could be done for the intros/outros). Otherwise just give the Chapter #. I hope this doesn't sound too confusing. These are just suggestions, though providing the book and chapter number seems important.

Another nice read.

Great suggestions. I'll re-record the intros to the sections already posted and tag them for spot PL, and handle the remaining chapters the same way.
Thanks much,
Joanne

I've added the Book number to the intros and outros of Book 1, Chapters 1 and 2, re-uploaded the recordings, and updated the times and tags. I've also loaded the book numbers and chapter titles into the rest of the MW.

Thanks,

Joanne
