Hi I-Tim!

I have not listened to the selection but I did run it through the Librivox Checker program and see that the volume is just 82.7 dB -- it has to be between 86 and 92, so you would need to run the amplify effect and raise the volume by at least 4 dB. You can do that and reupload the file now, or wait until later today when I've had a chance to listen to the file as well.

I went ahead and knocked this out and it is PL OK!

You don't need to change anything this time but 2 notes for future reference:

1) there were a couple of microphone noises especially in the first few minutes. I wasn't sure whether it was a bump on the table or other object near the microphone, or a plosive sound from sharp exhales near the mike. If it's the latter, if you don't already have a soft foam cover for your mike, or a pop screen, they are not expensive and a good investment. You can even make a pop screen from a wire hanger and some pantyhose.

2) Background noise level is a little high. If you have not done noise cleaning, it's pretty easy to do and a good habit for a first step after completing a recording and getting ready to edit. There are tutorials around the boards here or on video; here's one: https://youtu.be/VFSg9o37HMw

You are off to a good start, I like your voice and you read nice and clearly!
