Hello Sarah! I very much hope that you have a fantabulous time here at LibriVox! Luckily, you don't need to wait long. I have one optional note only:

You do have a bit of background noise that might be nice to clean up. It is not very bad, but if you wanted to elevate this recording to a slightly higher level this might be a way to do so. To do this:
1. Select a small piece of your recording that is pure noise
2. Go into menu items Effect>Noise Reduction
3. In Section 2 on the screen, choose your settings. My settings are Noise Reduction: 12, Sensitivity: 6, Frequency: 0.
4. Select 'Get Noise Profile'.
5. Select your entire recording.
6. Go to menu items Effect>Repeat Noise Reduction.

If you want to try this and get feedback, you can re upload with the same file name, post in the same thread, and I will take another listen. If not, you have the OK to record! I hope to see you around the forum :D
