Hi there, welcome to LibriVox. You have a wonderful recording that almost passed, except on one level. This is the bit rate. We need it at constant 128 kbps, yours is at variable 104. To fix this:

1.Go to export it (menu items file>export)
2. Look under the Format Options section
3.Where it says 'Bit Rate Mode', select 'Constant'
4. In the 'Quality' drop down menu select 128 kbps.

When you do this, please re upload and post in this thread so I can check again :mrgreen:.

PS. I did hear quite a bit of rustling/clicking etc. in the beginnings and ends. If this were a real recording you would probably want to cut that out :D
