Ok, now that I had my settings correct ( :roll: :wink: ), let's give this another shot!

Oh, and I'm using the most recent version of Audacity, and a Rode Mic with XLR connections.

Hi and welcome to Librivox.
Your reading is great there are just a couple of edits needed please.

The bit rate should be 128 kbps.  

The recording should use a constant bit rate rather than variable bit rate (VBR).  

The volume is currently too low it is 75dB. Ideally it should be 89dB but anything between 87-92dB is acceptable.

If you could carry out these edits and then reupload the file using the same filename that would be great thanks.
Off work now for 10 days so lots of recording, editing and PL ing can't wait.

Hi and thank you for your edited test. The volume is just a little bit too high. If you could just bring it down about 3-4dB that would be great.
