Now that I've cut my proverbial teeth :)

Thank you, file received. I'll listen to it some time soon and let you know if anything is amiss.

One more thing for future - please always post the length of the recording together with the link.

Thank you very much!
Section 7 (The Deportation of the Acadians of Nova Scotia (1755) by A.G. Bradley) is already assigned. Maybe you would like some other section?

Very nice reading!
Only it would be desirable to do some noise cleaning on the file. It has a noticeable background noise (you can see that in the audacity - in the places between sentences where you do not say anything, the line is not flat, but fluctuating.) A simple noise cleaning of the existing file should easily fix this. Here is more on noise cleaning: https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Noisecleaning_With_Pics

Please try this and re-upload the file.

Thanks!
