Just a week or two back I read some of the poems from this collection to my four-year-old daughter.

My recording – 1:19

I read directly from the PG, which like every edition I checked gives the title as "Picture Books in Winter."

Welcome to LibriVox Wayne, good first reading. :D
However the file name is incorrect, we need initials rather than your forum name , also we require the _128kb as shown in the opening post, this for cataloging purposes. Could you correct and upload again please?

Thank you Eileen, good reading, but you've mis-read a couple of lines..
- at 0:24 you've read "Water is now turned to stoned" text is "Water now is turned to stoned"
- at 0:32 is read "In the story picture books." text is "In the picture story-books." :wink:

Last recording I used my USB mic. This time I just used the computer mic and found there was no background hum with the recording.

Very nice poem

Thank you Deb, if you look at your waveform, most noticeable in the 5 second closing silence, there is an oscillating hum which runs continuously throughout the file. This is very noticeable on speaker, less so with headphones. I have no idea what would cause this, you could try recording without the power cord plugged into the laptop. Or there could be another source of interference close by.
