The Donkey, the Table, and the Stick is PL:OK!!! :D

That was a fun story. I know a different version of it with 3 brothers and the youngest is the one who gets all the things back!

Hi Aravis,

I am new to this. I have done the 1 min test and it has been OK'd. I would like to try and do my first recording.
I would like to read The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter from : http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/582/pg582.txt

I am not very good yet with all the noise reduction etc, so would appreciate some contructive feedback on my recording.

Hi SarcasticCam!

Great reading! :D
There are just a few things that need fixing. First of all your recording is in stereo and we require mono. Here is a good tutorial on how to fix that: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Splitting_a_Stereo_File
Also the volume is too low... 71dB according to mp3 Gain ( http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/download.php ) and we aim for 89dB. It would be great if you could amplify your recording. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Amplifying
