I asked you to read me something.

As part of you must follow me carefully, participants are asked to read a text of their choice aloud – how they like, for as long as they like. Below is a very messy, fragmented list of what has been read and documented so far as part of this series to date.

There are lines from some of these texts which have become a reoccurring thread throughout the series, others have faded the moment they were uttered.
