A fine reading. Thank you.

There are just a few corrections to be made, all simple ones.

First, please shorten the opening silence to something between 1/2 second and 1 second. Second, you need to provide the closing text for this recording and please remember to include 5 complete seconds of silence afterward. Finally, when you re-upload your recording, please correct the file name. You missed the first letter 'l' in 'littlejourneys.'
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

May I claim Section 15

Andrew Carnegie, Part 1 until "..made an impression on Mr. Carnegie then and there that bore speedy fruit. "

and Section 16: Andrew Carnegie, Part 2
?

I know that he built free libraries all across the U.S., because of a commitment to literacy for "the common man." And that he was Very Very rich. Other than that, he's a mystery.

Thank you!

Have fun! :D

Hi there and welcome to LV and to this project! :D

Thanks for claiming, but section 11 is already complete, so no need to read it again.

In any case, before claiming again and definitely before recording, you should do a 1-Minute-Test. It's not an audition, but a kind of sound check to make sure your equipment is up to scratch and all your settings are correct. You'll find more details about the test in your welcome mail, or, if you don't have that anymore, here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

Have fun on here!
Cheers, Ava.
