Hey! Welcome to Librivox!

What a lovely voice! And your tech specs are spot on :thumbs:
What I would do is "Amplify", so that the waveform peaks above the 0.5 mark to reach desired volume range

and then use the Noise Reduction for the amplified background noise. Here's a guide: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Noisecleaning_With_Pics#Clean_up_the_Noise:_Audacity_versions_from_2.1.0

So keep tabs on your volume and background noise, and you'll be perfect! :D

If you want, you can upload your file after editing to check if it worked well
