Hi Lilith, Welcome to LibriVox! We're glad that you decided on the Nonfiction Collection for your first recording! I'd never done any recording either when I started out with LibriVox; it is scary at first but gets easier . . . Your choice of the Alhambra is a wonderful topic for a first read . . . a place of mystery and beauty, both to visit in person and to read about. Your technical recording specs looked ok to me. Craig (Soupy on the forum) is our dedicated proof listener, and he will proof listen the text for you.OCTL7 wrote:Hi Sue,
May I offer "The Alhambra" by W. Somerset Maugham? It's chapter 23 in his book of travel The Land of the Blessed Virgin: https://archive.org/stream/landblessedvirg00mauggoog#page/n196/mode/2up/search/alhambra
It lasts 13:06 mins and the url of my recording is: https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/snf044_alhambra_maugham_lb_128kb.mp3
This is my first recording and my name is Lilith Branda.
