Farnood:

I had a listen to your recordings of section 9, 10, 11, 12, 20, 21, 22. They all have quite significant background noise, but fortunately this can be fixed. I would recommend running them all through 2 rounds of noise cleaning (I find that running two rounds generally gives a nicer result than running one very aggressive round of cleaning).

Additionally, in the intro of section 9 you say "Read for Librivox" where this should be "Read for Librivox DOT org".

If I can give you one other bit of unasked-for advice; I noticed a few times in your recordings that there was a pause/hesitation before or after words such as "dimplement", "peradventure", etc. What I generally do, particularly with poems with old-fashioned language, is read through them before and make sure I'm familiar with all the uncommon words that might come up, or words/phrases that might be difficult to pronounce.
As an alternative, just go through it, but if you notice that you paused, you can go back and redo that line. After all, if you noticed the pause, a listener will notice that pause too--and it might not always be beneficial to have that in the middle of a sentence. :)
