Needs more differentiation between stories.

My biggest complaint is that there is not enough separation between stories. There is barely even a pause between one story and the next. It seems some stories are read without providing titles or byline information, which does not help in terms of differentiating one story from the next. It might help if stories were alternately read by two different readers, preferably one male and one female, to help distinguish one story from the next. The sports stories and especially the game scores, bore me. What different stocks are doing also seems highly questionable in the Audible format. Some stories are edited heavily, which often detracts significantly from their meaning. The worst part is that it is not clear when a story has been edited. It would be nice if listeners were alerted to stories that are heavily edited for Audible. Some words are misread or mispronounced. Apparently, there is no time to get it right. But on the whole I find this service helpful.
