Nicely read, but a couple of technical things.

1 The volume is too low measuring 84.6 dB. The LV target is 89dB with a range of 86-92 dB. If you use Audacity, the Amplify feature can be used to raise the volume -- set for 4dB of amplification.

2. While you do this, you can clip of 2 seconds from the ending silence to make it the 5 seconds which is the LV standard.

Upload the corrected file under the same name and post here with the new running time.

Thanks so much.

Thank you,

I'll let Carolin get you set up in the catalog, but I did listen to this section.

What a wonderful voice and expressive reading, Jim!
I hope you'll be recording much more for LibriVox. :clap:
