I got started on the read-aloud, and it's going well enough -- lots of tiny clean-ups, mostly cutting unnecessary words. My style errs on the side of minimalism. But I hadn't anticipated that one obstacle would be this cough that I still have; I'm having to take a lot of breaks even within chapters, or I end up coughing too hard. I've calculated that it'll be about eleven hours of reading aloud overall. This is going to spill over to Monday, I'm pretty sure. But I still have hopes that I can send the book out on Monday anyway.
