The audio says "Scrivo un libro".

Not sure about that, but it is pretty garbled.

When words ending in a vowel lead into a word starting with a similar vowel sound, the ending vowel of the lead word is dropped. Therefore, you hear " Scrivon' un libro."

To me it sounds like the audio is saying "Scrivono libro".
