Chapter 3 - Sharp Eyes Hears Something - (I'm only mentioning this because I know this would be an easy edit for you.) Entirely optional - at about 6:27 there is a double thump. It's right between works so should be no problem to edit. It's See PL notes for now - but if you don't want to bother changing it let me know and I'll switch the magic window to PL OK.

Also, I notice that chapter 3 is an ad for other books in this series.

Chapter 4 - Sharp Eyes is Hurt - PL OK.

Chapter 5 - Sharp Eyes Meets Don - PL OK. I love the panting. I bet Don slobbers all over everything as well.

Hello Loon,

Thank you. Corrected chapter 3, same length: https://librivox.org/uploads/philchenevert/sharpeyesthesilverfox_03_barnum_128kb.mp3
The double thump was made by my soft pallette while breathing in. I just zeroed the offending segment

Best Regards,
Adrian

Everything is fine except the silence at the end is just 4 1/4 seconds. I think we can let that go -- If Phil says that's OK.
I'll mark the chapter Check PL Notes for the moment.
A ruling please, Phil?

A note for future chapters. Checker says your average volume was in the acceptable range but almost 2 dB below the LibriVox ideal. You can't just amplify your chapter, though, because some of your peak levels are very near the maximum. A 1.5 or 2 dB amplification would put your loudest syllables into clipping - which sounds horrible. If some future chapter comes in with an average level more than 3 dB below the ideal level but with peaks as loud as you have here you would need to apply some light compression and then amplify the whole chapter a bit.

Check your file name, is it exactly as specified in the first post? There may be some extra little things hidden in there that confuse the uploader.
