Hi! Welcome to Librivox!

Lovely voice and accent!
Tech specs are correct, but I think the volume is too low. First check to make sure Audacity is using the correct microphone, and if so, see if you can increase the input volume, from the microphone icons in the Audacity toolbar. Also check the options in the Control Panel for Sounds and Microphone (check if you can increase the microphone volume).

The visual hint in Audacity for a nice volume is when the waveform peaks above the mark:

When you're ready with a new recording, upload and post here again, or ask if there are any questions in the meantime :D
