Thank you, Winston! :thumbs:

Welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Collection, Zana! :clap: Your poetry reading is lovely! Just one tech spec that needs fixing, and that is the bit-rate. If you are exporting to mp3 from Audacity, check the mp3 options and choose "constant" and "128kbps" for bit rate. Then click OK to export, and it saves the settings for all future exports. When ready, upload your new file and we'll check again. :)
By what name would you like to be credited in the Readers Catalogue? Your forum name, or something different?

I knew there was something I was forgetting! :oops:

The new file with the correct bit rate should be uploaded now! https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc201_earthlyparadise_zp_128kb.mp3

Please use my forum name in the Readers Catalogue! Thanks so much :D
