I do not quite know how anything here works just yet. If one of you would be so kind as to direct me to the poem you want me to read , where to post it and which buttons to press..., I would be much obliged. Thank you.

Hello! I would love to have you read section 8 though I do wonder if this is your very first recording? I will hold that section for you though please do respond to this question when you have the time. Thank you,
April
I have never read for librivox. No. Here is a sample of my reading skill level if it helps: https://youtu.be/d1E_dcbBZK0
Just listened to your sample of reading and WOW!! Wonderful reading voice you have. Please do follow through with your 1 minute test as it would be a shame to not have you read librivox materials.

Please do a 1-minute test if you have not already done so (https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test), this is to get the details of the technical side sorted. If you're interested in developing your technique, and have the time to spare, I have recorded a number of YouTube videos on this subject.

I would love if you read the section you have already claimed. It is not a poem though & does have 3458 words. I see that Adrian has given a list of helpful areas to pursue if you have the time.
I have already mentioned that it would be shameful for you not to record LibriVox materials. I meant it.
Please also understand that this site has a number of people who can answer questions or help to solve a problem when one may arise.
Happy Easter!!
April

I apologize ahead of time if my breathing sounds out of control. Allergies are terrible right now and seems like I have no breath control at the moment! I tried to edit it the best I could :|

Hello Jenn,
I listened to the beginning of your section & I hear no breathing issues. The pl okay is with the dpl.
My husband also has allergies so I do understand how problematic allergies can be. :( Your voice is pleasant though and not sounding as though there is a problem at all. Thank you for posting.
April

Hello Jenn, this is nicely read and the breathing didn't come over as problematic (at least for the listener!). Thank you. PL OK.
