Hello Chrysse! Welcome to LibriVox! Hope you are enjoying yourself. I sure enjoyed listening to your recordings, you have a nice round tone that lends itself nicely to poetry. Chapter 36 is PL OK!

Chapter 35 has two notes, both are easy fixes.
Your beginning silence is a bit long, we ask for no more than 0.5 to 1 second, yours is around 2.
Your ending silence is a bit long too, please cut it down to about 5 seconds.

That's all that needs fixing! I would like to point out, however that I did notice a few minor things in both recordings. I heard some plosives at points. At other points your voice sounded a bit distorted, like the microphone was picking up your voice too loudly. Throughout most of it I heard a crinkling noise, which leads me to think that your microphone might be a bit close to your face. If I were you I may play around with the orientation (move it farther from your mouth, to the side, etc.). Currently you are very understandable so there is no need to rerecord, just something you may want to play around with in the future.

I hope to see more of you in the future!

Hi lymiewithpurpose,

I am enjoying myself! Thanks so much for the feedback - I'll have your notes in mind for future recordings. Here is the edited Chapter 35:

Oh, I couldn't help myself --- recorded these.

Here are just two, because I'm too tired to edit any more tonight.
I hope this is okay....

I loved them! Great readings! 29 is ok :clap:.

19 notes: around 0:50 - the silence between the end of poem and disclaimer is a bit long, maybe cut it down by a few seconds.

I'll be excited to hear the rest!
