Thank you, Victor, Sec.5 is PL OK. I submit to Anya's decision :)
However, after taking another look, I see that the footnote is written by Tolstoy himself, not by an unnamed editor. Therefore I feel it was not right to leave the footnote out. Just my two cents. :)
I enjoy discussions, because smth may be learned) I felt it was written by the author too, but if he included this phrase into the main text, a readers job could be easier. But reading it as a footnote interrupts the flow of the speech. You're perfect in this skill, but I don't demand it from anybody.
Your .02$ are welcome)

Thank you for you observations, Anya and Mark! I was also in doubt about the footnotes, if they should be read or not. I am reading now a historical book (Hinduism and Buddhism, An Historical Sketch) that has at every few sentences very laborius footnotes indicating bibliography and I left them out . I thought it might interrupt the flow of the speech.

My 1-minute test has been approved yesterday, so at long last, here are the recordings:

Section 8: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/detstvo_8_tolstoy_128kb.mp3 ; 04:14

Section 9: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/detstvo_9_tolstoy_128kb.mp3 ; 03:04

Section 10: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/detstvo_10_tolstoy_128kb.mp3 ; 04:47

Section 11: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/detstvo_11_tolstoy_128kb.mp3 ; 06:52

If no one minds and the quality of these recordings is satisfactory, would it be possible for me to do everything including-and-following Section 18?.. I find I rather enjoyed recording Tolstoy's work, so...

Great!
Sec 8 & Sec 9 files have wrong names. Please remove them from the server and rename and reupload back. Please let me know if you get any trouble.
In the instructions we have the following phrase.
Save files as
128 kbps MP3
detstvo_##_tolstoy_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. detstvo_01_tolstoy_128kb.mp3)

Sure! I'm really glad you enjoy this story, but let's wait for the feedback. The editing might be not so enjoyable. And after this four sections are PL OK, I'll ask you for the confirmation. I hold Sec 18 - 28 for you.

Thank you :D

Don't worry about this (only an admin can do this). Just upload them again with the correct name.

Okay, here are the new links for sections 8 and 9:

Section 8: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/detstvo_08_tolstoy_128kb.mp3 ; 04:14

Section 9: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/detstvo_09_tolstoy_128kb.mp3 ; 03:04

Hopefully, these work and I haven't messed anything else up... Thank you for letting me know! I will wait for the notes with bated breath :)

Best,
M.

Yes, those file names are good. Mark will check and give you feedback as soon as he can. Don't worry to much, your narration seems to be pretty good :D

Thank you)

Dear Maria, thank you for the good job! I am glad you want to record more sections, therefore I offering a general suggestion you did not ask for 8-)
It looks like you cut every pause from your recording, therefore it does not sound natural. A listener does not hear you breathing and starts worrying :-)
It is okay here, but for future sections please leave pauses between paragraphs, sentences, and direct speech of different characters.
If you wish to continue receiving this sort of suggestions, please write something like "constructive criticism (or CC) welcome." If you don't want to see any CC then do nothing, and I won't bother you :-)
Here is the feedback that needs to be addressed: 8-)

Sec.8:
0:0 - the pause at the beginning must be .5 - 1 sec
3:33 "не только что убить птицу", I hear "не только убить птицу"
4:04 "А игры не будетъ", I hear "А игры никакой не будетъ"
4:13 - the pause at the end must be 5 sec

Sec.9:
0:0 - the pause at the beginning must be .5 - 1 sec
1:15 - 1:25 - the volume gets noticeably lower, please add ~3 dB
3:03 - the pause at the end must be 5 sec

Sec.10:
0:50 - "онъ не могъ", I hear "онъ не cмогъ"
1:40 - "въ отношеніяхъ со всякимъ", I hear "въ отношеніяхъ со всеми"
3:15 - "слезы показывались", I hear "слезы накатывались"
4:45 - the pause at the end must be 5 sec

Sec.11:
0:0 - the pause at the beginning must be .5 - 1 sec
1:00 - "ПапА́," please stress the last syllable, Tolstoy uses it as a French word
2:44 - "въ рукѣ", I hear "въ руках"
3:14 - "ПапА́," please stress the last syllable
3:30 - "точно привязанъ", I hear "тоже привязанъ"
4:58 - "ПапА́", I hear "папой." Does not inflect / не склоняется :-)
5:00 - "всѣ несправедливости", I hear "всѣ справедливости"
6:50 - the pause at the end must be 5 sec

Honestly, you are doing a great job, my first recording was much worse :-)
