Here's Chapter 11: James Wolfe, ready for PL!

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_11_gordy_128kb.mp3
Length: 10:27

This is my longest recording so far - otherwise I've only done short poems that I could read in one take. If you have any feedback or editing notes I'd love to hear them!

Greetings!
I would like to volunteer to read Section 22- Daniel Webster, the Defender and Expounder of the Constitution 1782-1852
Ann Tracey

:)
First, please read through the Newbie Guide to Recording: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording

Complete your one-minute test recording as outlined there, post it as instructed, and when you have it approved, post your request here again. I will save this for you for a week, unless you need longer. Just let me know.

Looking forward to having you as part of this project. :)

Hi, my test recording has been approved! I will have this section complete by the end of the week if that is ok?

Thank you!

Here's my recording for Chapter 1: https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_01_gordy_128kb.mp3 (22:12)
Nice reading of chapter 1.
A couple of notes:
At 5:43, I heard .....leading by the hand hid little son Diego should be his little son Diego
At 20:18, I heard...he laded on an island should be landed on an island

At the beginning of the recording, I noticed you are at the top limit of space at 1 second. I try to shoot for around a half second.
Thanks for the feedback! Here's the updated one (finally :)): https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/americanleaders_01_gordy_128kb.mp3 (22:12)
