Welcome to LibriVox Jacqueline. :D Good first reading. :thumbs:

The only Feedback to offer is the low volume at 85.5 dB.
You should aim for your waveforms 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 an extra underscore in your filename, before 'love'. :wink:

Just one tiny error in your reading, David. At 00:38, the line reads "...by choice AND conscience."
I heard "...by choice OR conscience."

I'm still getting over a nasty cold so my recording is a little deeper this week. :D

Welcome to LibriVox Aneesha :D Good first reading!

The specs need a bit of adjusting, the file is in stereo, we need mono.
You have an extra underscore in the filename (no underscore before 'love') :wink:
Your volume is too loud at 98.8 dB. You should aim for your waveforms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:
