Welcome to LibriVox Brett :D Good first reading, just a couple of notes...
- the volume is too low at 76 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)
- please correct the filename when you upload your amplified file, 128kb.mp3-
- could you trim the ending silence down to 5 seconds?

*Please let me know under what name would you like to appear in the LV catalog and if you have one, we can put your personal URL link on your catalog page too.

Can't remember - I copy-and-pasted whatever was in the forum page at whatever time I did it, that's all I know... :)

Welcome to LibriVox Sera, good first reading. :D
Just one comment, the volume is a bit low at 86.3 dB, you should aim for your waveforms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

I did a reread, adjusting my volume and making my voice more consistent. According to the checker, I'm at 89.3 dB
