Hi Josh,

Welcome to LibriVox! The Introduction is all yours! Please read the first post of this thread carefully. Also, since this is the introduction, where it says "Chapter" in the intro or outro, please say "Introduction" instead. :-)

Please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. It can be your real name, forum name, or a pseudonym ~ whatever you prefer!

Also, 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!

Section 7

I added the closing chronology to the end of this section. It will be easy for me to eliminate it should you not wish to include it.
