Hmmm. At about 2:08 it sounds like you read "Juniper Hare" and not "Jumper Hare". Do you want to check that? The rest of the chapter is perfect. (See PL notes for the moment.)

Heather -
All three chapters have very close to 1.25 seconds of silence before your first word - this is a bit long. LibriVox says the opening silence should have "no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording" - could you bring your recordings back into Audacity and trim around 3/4 second from the beginning of each please? (When you upload them again your new upload will replace the one that's presently in the Magic Window.)

Other notes:
- I followed along in the Gutenberg text and your reading on all 3 chapters is word-for-word perfect. Good!
- The overall volume of each chapter is in the middle 1/3 of the LibriVox range. Good!
- You are having a good time reading the chapters and it shows in your voice. That's so important, thank you.
- When you export your .mp3 you are adding things like the book title and your name. This info gets removed/replaced by the time LV books make it to the library. There's no harm adding the information, but you can save some typing by skipping it.

I'm marking the chapters See PL notes for now - trimming the 3 files will be a quick fix for you.
