Very articulate reading of chapter 9
A couple of things:

At the start, please leave only about a half second space. We're not supposed to exceed one second.
Also, there is a loud click

7:09 jumpy
10:44 and 10:55 there is a repeat

Perfect, I will make changes to chapter 9 and then upload it and chapter 10 once I have it mastered. I may take on some more chapters, but have 2 from another book I should get to first. Thanks!

For chapter 10, would you please shave some time off the end? We're supposed to have no more than 5 seconds, and you are close to 7.
Everything else was fine.

Hello and welcome to Librivox.
I listened to your recording and wanted to give you a couple of notes:
The first thing I noticed is that your volume level is extremely low at 73.8. Volume needs to be somewhere between 86-92, although a mid range, about 90, would be ideal. You can check your volume using the Volume Checker (see instructions to recording).

Adjustments to volume can be made 2 ways: Using the Audacity program, you can highlight the passage (or entire text) you want to amplify, click on Effects (at the top) and choose Amplify. Experiment with that a bit and you'll find the right volume. You could try it with a sample text first. The second option to adjusting volume is also within Audacity, but on the left side. You'll see a mute button with a sliding scale. Highlight your text and click on that box. Again, you can check your volume with the Checker until you get it where you want it to be.

As to chapter one:

:58 particular should be peculiar
5:26 should carry her far

At the end of your recording, you have to say: End of chapter one and follow that with 5 seconds (no more) of silence.
Also, when you submit a recording, please make sure to let the MC know the length of the recording.

It's absolutely necessary before beginning a recording to very carefully read the first page for instructions (under the Magic Window). There, it will tell you what is expected in terms of intros, labelling, etc.

Chapter 8 is complete.

As a first timer here, this was more challenging than I had thought it would be, but I enjoyed it!
Let me know if it needs anything.
