Hi Phil,

Here is section 13, the duration is 24:11. I hope it's good!

Thank you :)
Hi Amelia, just a couple of things with this chapter that need to be changed.
  • You could use a round of noise cleaning (which the silence at the end is perfect for!)
  • There are a number of stumbles: at 6:29, 13:27, 13:47, 13:52, 17:28, 19:48, and 22:06. These can be hard to find when you're editing so I’d recommend stopping every time you stumble while recording and clapping, so you have a nice clear peak in the recording to indicate something that needs to be changed. Can take a bit of practice but it really pays dividends :wink:
This doesn't need to be changed, but for future recordings you might consider changing the angle of your microphone or using a pop filter (which you can make at home) to avoid the pops that show up from time to time.

Please make these changes, reupload and post back here, and don't hesitate to ask Phil or I if you have any questions :D

Hi! I'd like to claim chapter 14 if possible.

(the last incomplete chapter for my very first recording, ^-^ how delightfully poetic)

You can go ahead and take it. I've suddenly got too much on my plate and the admin hasn't really confirmed the assignment so yeah.

Hello, can I claim chapter 14 please? I have a question: do I need to read words below these illustrations?

Nicely read. Both chapters could use a round of noise cleaning - see the wiki (https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Noisecleaning_With_Pics) and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Please re-upload the chapters once they're done :)

Thanks for the feedback! I made a few passes with noise reduction. Hope it's better now.

Hi! I'm looking to claim section 14, An Early Spring Call on Mr. Bear. This is going to be my first time recording. For the catalog I should probably just have it be my username, correct?
