Good morning everyone!!! My name is Austin and I am excited to be a part of the Librivox family. I love the service which Librivox provides to the public. I own the rights to books that I want to be cataloged in the public domain. Thank you again for letting me join!!

Hi Austin and welcome.
The best starting point is submitting a one minute test and the team there will guide you on getting your setup right. http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
When you start, it is best to read a chapter or two of established projects, but once you are familiar with the site and the process, you can branch out to any Public Domain text that interests you.
Poetry is also a popular launch point (see the Short Works forum, dropdown menu at the bottom of the page).
Copyright is a legal quagmire, and I am certainly no expert, but before you record any of the works you mention, I'd advise you to contact someone who knows and can guide you through this.
