Welcome to Librivox, Leenaaaa! :D
Your recording sample has all tech specs correct, so you are in fact ready to record as much as you want!!
Do you have a favourite poet or a favourite poem? For this collection, you can choose to record any poem you'd like (up to three actually!) as long as it is in the public domain, which essentially means published before 1925.
http://www.gutenberg.org/ is a fabulous source for public domain works!

Hello,
Here is my final contribution:

Title: Jack and Jill and Old Dame Gill

Q. I tried to find out the date of this publication but struggled, would you be able to help, I'm recording from Liverpool so I don't want to break any copyright legislation? Your help would be very much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Chad
Very amusing! Thank you, Chad! PL OK!

Yes I am a soprano 8-)
Although I had professors in college tease me and refer to me as "the low voiced soprano" :hmm:
Haha My speaking voice may be lower than most sopranos, but my high notes do not suffer because of it!

Seems good! Can you post this in the Listeners and Editors Wanted? Very good recording. Mark it OK, and start recording for other things! Just make sure that you add silence at the beginning of the recording next time.

The Wants of Man by John Quincy Adams

Susan Lamar is the name I recorded by

:clap:
Hello Susan! Your reading is gorgeous! I have some trouble with the volume though. It is very very low, and gradually it zeroes down. I would guess you accidentally used a "fade out" effect or something. Unfortunately it can't be restored by amplifying; it'll have to be recorded again. Or maybe you have kept the original raw recording with full volume?

One wording-related PL note: This poetry project uses a shorten form of the disclaimer (see first post for details). If you could also use that, for consistency, that'd be great! For your recording it would be:

"The Wants of Man by John Quincy Adams. Read for Librivox (dot) org, by your name (optional)" then the poem and end with
"End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." + 5 seconds of silence.
