Can anyone here read this Chinese text?

I just got finished reading Breaking the Tongue and at the end of the book there is a bunch of untranslated Chinese text… I’d love to know what it says! Can someone read this? I numbered the sections so that it would be easy to reference what is what… (I didn’t realize the scanner was set to such a low resolution until I’d already put everything away, so if it’s too hard to read let me know and I can re-scan it bigger.)
