Cadastra,
You now have MW access ... sorry for the delay, but school goes on and I was down a rabbit hole writing a paper! Back on top now and catching up.

Sections 29, 30, 31, and 32 are PL OK. Have you heard of Checker? You can use the program to check the technical specifications of your files against LibriVox standards - https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker. When I ran your files through Checker, Sections 30, 31, and 32 had +3 to +4 DC bias. The DC bias should be right around 0 (although -1 to +1 is acceptable). Significant DC bias can distort the audio and create clicks in the background of your recording, especially if you process your files using the noise cleaning or amplifying feature in Audacity. Since I didn't notice any audio distortion in your files, you don't need to normalize the files you have already uploaded, but you should normalize every recording before editing from now on. Simply Select All (Ctrl+A), Click Effect | Normalize, and check the "Remove DC Offset" box only, then click OK. Check that there is no DC bias using Checker. Thanks!
