Have quite a hoard of books on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics lying around at my place. Thought it might be worthwhile to record the audio versions for them. Started recording two weeks ago only to find out that not me really having communicated for the last 2 years (while I'm stuck waiting for the borders with China to open) really did a number on the way I speak. So I decided to practice with reading out the Chinese white papers (starting with the least interesting ones. Having now spent 10+ hours of recording I should probably get someone to listen to it.

Main questions: Is the quality of the recording decent? Do I sound overly affectatious?

Feel free to rip into me. I really dislike listening to my own voice so I can't be a proper judge.
