Mari,
I don’t remember PLing for you before. I enjoy you reading style. Nice work.

PL notes
0:21 Missing part of the intro – "A Boys' Life of Booker T. Washington, by W. C. Jackson. [Chapter Name]"

The section could use a round of noise cleaning.
Hello Mari,
Unfortunately you correction was put in the wrong place and the intro after your name is missing.

The full intro should be:
"Chapter [number] of A Boys' Life of Booker T. Washington. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Say:
"A Boys' Life of Booker T. Washington, by W. C. Jackson. [Chapter Name]"

Also, in this recording your ending silence has been extended. Please trim to ~5 seconds.

Hi Mari!
Chapter 8 is spot check PL OK! :clap:

Chapter 7
The volume went down on this one. It's too low at 85.9dB. We aim for 89dB with an acceptable range of 86-92dB.
Intro is correct. Ending silence is ~6.5 seconds.

Chapter 9
Intro is close but you missed the last part.

The full intro should be:
"Chapter [number] of A Boys' Life of Booker T. Washington. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
If you wish, say: "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

Hello,

I have uploaded chapter 9 with the intro fixed. If there are any changes, I will fix them tonight when I get home since I don't have a mike here at work. Also, I will fix chapter 7's volume as well and silence section tonight or tomorrow.

Please see below:

Okay, I'll be working on fixing chapter 7, fixing the sound and will use Checker to fix the decibel level, do you have any tips or suggestions on this you can impart?

WE HAVE AN ORPHAN

Section 6 is now open for a new claim.
Would like a short turnaround since we are otherwise fully claimed.

That would be great!
We are still waiting on two other readers, so no BIG rush.
I just didn't want to wait another two months for the last section.
I appreciate your taking this.
