Welcome to LibriVox Nan, good first reading. :D
There are a few technical things to clear up though..
- your volume is too low at 77.9 dB, we look for approx 89 dB
- the background noise level will increase with amplification, so some noise reduction may be needed. :wink:

You should aim for your wave forms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

You can check your volume using our Checker program - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume in decibels on the Information tab. For your information, we look for around 89 dB (87-91 is OK)
There is also a 44.7 dB background noise level that will increase with amplifying, so you will have to apply some Noise Reduction to the file.
Please experiment with amplifying and Noise Reduction and upload a new file (same filename please).

*Please let me know under what name would you like to appear in the LV catalog and if you have one, we can put your personal URL link on your catalog page too.
You can view your brand new LV Catalog page by clicking your forum name in the Magic Window.

Thank you Robin. :thumbs:
One note, you do have a few plosives (breath noise on the mic) mainly on the "P" and "TH" sounds,. backing off the mic or angling the mic so your mouth is not facing directly may help. :wink:
