This is my first time posting a piece on librivox that isn't a test piece. I would like to be listed as reader: Michael Daly

I hope the piece is satisfactory. There is one slightly awkward sentence dropped in but I think it might be OK,

Many thanks and great work everyone.

Please cut the beginning silence to between .5 and 1 second. Other than that, a good first reading :thumbs:

Hello. I would like to contribute.

I'm kicking around "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", short story by Rudyard Kipling. It appears to be in the public domain. Other audio versions appear to be 34 to 36 minutes.

My 1 Minute Test has been approved. However, I assure you, I am a complete neophyte, particularly with technical matters.

Is my understanding correct that I would be expected to download this as 1 file?

Thank you... but next time, even your initials need to be lower case 8-)
