I was too lazy to jot down my thoughts in full, so I decided to record them instead. Yay, now you get to hear what I sound like when I’m not acting. (Truth be told, I’m not the most polished speech-giver/speaker, so this is actually a good exercise in skill and confidence for me. It’s scary enough sharing my voice with the world when I’m reading other people’s words.)
For context, I marked various points of interest with paperclips as I was reading this section, and flipped through the pages to find them as I was recording. (I’ve done my best to edit out all the page-flipping noises.) Plus, because my hands were full with the book, I couldn’t hold the pop filter over my mic, so #nofilter! 😛
Also, before we begin – this portion of the book deals with a lot of romance and briefly mentions a character’s past affair and the possibility of this character’s illegitimate offspring. This book, while not vulgar, is not for six-year-olds.
For those of you who are worried about how fast I talk without pausing to take a breath, yes, it’s true, I talk pretty fast, but I also edited most of the particularly long, awkward pauses between my sentences.
