Just fyi, there is a line in the text "and they run it up and down and pour out the black stuff on the road. And that's all there is to it." that isn't highlighted, but it's clear it is Betsy speaking so I recorded it :)
Thank you for catching that! And thanks for getting your many files in so speedily!

Mrs. Lathrop is PL OK! :thumbs: Great job! Loved it!

Just a note for future recordings -- LibriVox filenames should have only lowercase letters.

PL notes for Annie:

@ 0:59 Needs a pause: "...and sell things! Say ... " [3-5 silences of silence needed here] "you smart young one..."

@ 0:55 Needs a pause: "Well, now!" [3-5 silences of silence needed here] "if she didn't take hold and sell things!"

@ 0:39 Needs a longer pause: You stack the dishes up on that counter." [3-5 silences of silence needed here] "No, you won't."

@ 0:29 Needs a pause: "Wouldn't Momma be crazy!" [3-5 silences of silence needed here] "But she'll never know."

@ 0:07 Needs a pause: "Oh, I wish I could, Dan!" [3-5 silences of silence needed here] "But honest! Momma'd just eat me up alive..."

Also, your volume is just a little too loud at 93.8 dB. Could you de-amplify it about 2 dB to get it within the target range of 86-92 dB?

Excellent reading!!

PL notes for Narrator Ch 1:

@ 8:41 Misread word: "and led her through the busy streets to the big brick school-building where the little girl had always gone to school."

@ 5:24 Long pause: "take care of Elizabeth Ann better and better. [Long pause] Aunt Frances was afraid..." (Could you cut this pause down to about 2 seconds?)

@ 4:59 Long pause: "...keep her happy and strong and well. [Long pause] And yet Elizabeth Ann was neither..." (Could you cut this pause down to about 2 seconds?)

@ 0:10 Intro is incorrect. Some lines are missing and other lines need to be removed. Be sure to read the intro word-for-word:
Chapter 1 of Understood Betsy. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit librivox.org. Understood Betsy, by Dorothy Canfield Fisher. Chapter 1: "Aunt Harriet Has a Cough."
@ 0:00 Missing voice credit. (Please add your voice credit at the very beginning of the recording instead of within the intro.)

There are little plosives throughout your recording, meaning your breath is hitting the microphone when you speak. Next time, try moving the microphone a little farther away and maybe more to the side. Not too much, though, because your volume is already perfect and level of background noise nice and low.

By the way -- bravo! :clap: I loved how you read with animation in your voice!
