Here is an edited section 8 with the time.

On the noise reduction, I think it makes the recording sound a bit "tinny" (metallic?). I may have done it incorrectly if this is not typical.

Let me know if it is ok and I will make the same edits to the other two sections.

Thank you!!

Thanks Crystal! :D
Lots of noise removal can make the recording sound tinny, but background noise can be distracting if it's too loud. So really you just need to decide how you want your recordings to sound - whether you want them noise-free but a bit tinny, or leave a bit of background noise and have your voice sound better. You can also experiment around in Audacity and work out what you think sounds best. Try fiddling around with the noise removal settings. Larry recommended 15 db, which is a lot - if you don't like the way it sounds then start with 7 db and and if you think it needs more run some more. Just make sure you save your original recording so you don't ruin it with experimenting (I've done that).

Thank you!
Rachel

I think this sounds fine. The only issue is that the opening silence is too long and the ending silence is too short. This should be:

At the beginning -- less than ONE second
At the end -- FIVE seconds. (ten if over 30 minutes)

I would like to read section 16 "A Year" if I may.

While I am recording the last three I have, can I also request "section #65 - My Little Ghost" as well?
