Welcome to LibriVox Andrea :D good first reading, but there are a few technical concerns to address..
- your bitrate is 57 kbps (variable) we need 128 kbps (constant) this is set when you save/export your file
- the ending silence should be approx 5 seconds long
- the volume is low at 83.8 dB, you should aim for your waveforms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

You can check your volume using our Checker program - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume in decibels on the Information tab. For your information, we look for around 89 dB (87-91 is OK)

*Please let me know under what name would you like to appear in the LV catalog and if you have one, we can put your personal URL link on your catalog page too.
You can view your brand new LV Catalog page by clicking your forum name in the Magic Window. :)
