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

The volume is 78dB which is too low. We aim for between 86-92 dB but ideally we would like it to be at 89 dB.
In Audacity you will also find the option to amplify under 'effects'.
How to amplify in Audacity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_z607awyLw
If you like you can use the checker tool to verify volume and other settings.

Just for future reference -- all file names must be in lower case only. T

Also adding in a plug in called replay gain will help you to check your volume in Audacity. The link for the video on how to do this is below.


Please could you carry out the edits then upload the file using the same file name. If you need any more help please just ask. Thanks
