Hi! Here is a short story of a Little Match Girl. Feedback is appreciated!

https://librivox.org/uploads/m8b1/csw036_thelittlematchgirl_pg_128kb.mp3
The Little Match Girl
Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875)
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/1597/1597-h/1597-h.htm
Time- 7:12

Thanks!
Thank you!

There are a few PL notes:

There is a repeat at 1:18 - from the...from the cold
@ 2:37 there is a stumble/repeat: were st...stopped up with straw and rags.
and @4:06 a stumble: to be...behold was

If you could fix those and reupload, that would be great!
Here is the revised version. I tried to edit it to the best of my ability because I couldn't match my tone. I hope that it is okay! If not, I would be happy to rerecord it.

Alright, I am sure they are fine, but if you are reading from a hard copy, I do need a picture or scan of the copyright page, just for verification. You can put them in a zip file and upload them to my folder.

I will listen to your files shortly.

PL Notes Fairer than a Fairy.

Again, I need a picture of the copyright page. Also, did you remember to edit this one before uploading? There are quite a few mistakes that should have been caught in the editing process.

In the intro it should just be the title of the story, and not include the title of the book it came from so "from the Yellow Fairy Book" needs to be cut out.
@1:28 "However, when af....af an hour’s journey" - should be "However, when after an hour’s journey"
@5:06 surp....surprised
@6:39 did not haste....hesitate
@7:21 stumble - 'The stone which'

Between 10:21-11:02 there is a long repeat that needs to be cut out. Please make sure you cut out this part, not the second reading of it, as there is a stumble and text missing at the end.

"After a time her road led through a wood, full of soft airs and sweet odours, and before she had gone a hundred yards she saw a wonderful silver Castle suspended by strong silver chains to four of the largest trees. It was so perfectly hung that a gentle breeze rocked it sufficiently to send you pleasantly to sleep.
Fairer-than-a-Fairy felt a strong desire to enter this Castle, but besides being hung a little above the ground there seemed to be neither doors nor windows. She had no doubt (though really I cannot think why) that the moment had come in which to use the nut which had been given her. She opened it, and out came a diminutive hall porter at whose belt hung a tiny chain,"

@13:31
"gentle rep...reproaches to her tale"
13:37-13:38 long pause between words in a sentence
@14:23 present her for...to..with his mother
@14:48 virtues....virtues
Needs 5 seconds silence at the end.

PL Notes "The House in the Woods"

Again, I need a picture of the copyright page. :-)

In the intro and the outro, please remove "of the Pink Fairy Book"
@1:41 repeat: "the girl...girl"
@2:31 wrong word/stumble: "then...there you will find"
@5:02 there is a long pause
At the end we need five seconds of silence.
