Hi Ian,

All yours ~ thank you! I just realized I missed your claim in the other project. My sincerest apologies! I have assigned them to you now!

Since this is your first recording, we ask that you send in a 1-minute test recording. This is not an audition, it's just to make sure the sound quality and the recording settings are all right - often things can be improved at the outset that are difficult to fix later. Please go to https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test to find out what to record for your 1-minute test, and how to upload the recording. In the LibriVox Uploader, please select 'tests - tests' from the MC drop-down, and then post your test recording in the Listeners Wanted forum, rather than in this thread - you'll get feedback more quickly there.

Thanks, and have fun!

Thanks, and you've got it! I already tested my Audacity configuration and new microphone setup, so I can do the test recording tonight and get that submitted.

Much appreciated!

Chapter 3 has one minor PL Note. A 0:21 you said Section instead of Chapter 3.
