Hello Ozi,
Welcome to librivox. You have a nice clear voice, I had no trouble understanding you.

There's one little technical change you could make that will improve the recording.

There is some noticeable background noise, which can distract from the reading. Please perform noise cleaning as shown here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noise_Cleaning. I recommend making this a part of your editing routine. You'll be surprised how much difference it makes. You can also move closer to the mic, this will make a lot of difference - but watch out for those popping "p"s !

Please address this issues and upload a new version. If you quote this message in your reply, I'll get a notification and will go in and re-check.

If you haven't already, you might spend some time browsing through the LibriVox Wiki. It contains a wealth of great information that you'll find useful and informative about who does what, and various technical aspects.

Thank you again for participating in Librivox
