Great job, Larry! Just a few technical notes. :clap:
Chapter 20 - A Hermit's Advice
PL Notes:
1. The volume falls outside of the target range (86–92 dB) at 92.2 dB - 89 dB is the ideal number, so you could just reduce volume 3.2 dB (or at least .2 dB )
2. Since you'll already be in the file, there should be no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording, the beginning is just slightly over 1 second now

That's really odd I ran it through MP3 Gain and it said it adjusted it to around 89, I will check it again

I usually run it through Checker, are you familiar with that program? It's a good way to quickly find out if the technical aspects of your recording are correct for Librivox. Here is the link to read about it if you're not familiar and a download link should you like to use it: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker

MP3 Gain is basically the same as that program, thanks

I use both. MP3 Gain I use for my recordings because it gives me an amplification value that I then do via the Audacity Feature.

I use Checker when I PL because it is is to drop the files in the Checker window, and it gives a true volume in dB, and ALSO checks other LV specs such as bit rate, mono or stereo, format of the file name, etc. That recently caught some of my files with the wrong bit rate. Somehow I had accidentally changed it. Checker was written specifically for LV. They both have their uses.

Well, unexpectedly, the MW has been updated before I could check in this evening.

But, it looks okay, so we are ready for READERS FOUND

Thanks to you two for picking up these sections.
