That would be great, Herman! I hope to have the first chapter ready for you soon. They're all lovely and short, too. :D

I think, you still need an MC, right?

I hope it's OK if you get your Magic Window on the weekend? I really need to go to bed now and won't be online much in the next couple of days... :)

I do still need an MC, Julia. I'm no good at it here or at LibriVox. :) The weekend would be perfect, I won't have any files ready before then, so there's really no need to hurry. Thank you!
