One small omission at 4m34s - you miss the title of the second story "The Story of David and Solomon". This also doubles as the end of the previous sentence which is left hanging.

Cheers,
Paul

Hi, if it's still available I'll do section 41, the 15th night.
It's no longer available....because it has your ID next to it. :)

As this is your first chapter, let us know how you'd like to be listed in the catalogue - real name, nick name, id etc. Also note that the volume of your 1-minute test was on the quiet side - each of the sections of the book need to be a similar volume so the listener isn't having to adjust their controls for each chapter! Our yardstick for this is ReplayGain - if you're using Audacity you can find a plug-in at https://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic.php?t=63067 . Adobe Audition (and probably other more commercially focused editors) use the rather catchy label of EBU R-128 for ReplayGain normalisation.
Thanks!, I'd like to be listed as Daniel Chao. I'll fix the volume problem - again thanks!

Sure - I've listened to your 1-minute test and it's great. How would you like your name to appear in the catalogue?

You'd be welcome, but before you start recording with Librivox we like you to record a test piece first. This isn't an audition so much as to check that you can produce a file that meets Librivox's technical specifications. Details are here: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=1-Minute_Test

I'll mark the section as allocated to you pending the 1-minute test.

Cheers,
Paul
