Ah, of course. I'd forgotten about the auto generator for those buttons. Thanks for making all those, Alex.

I have the Photoshop files from the guy who designed those little buttons, a friend of mine here in Tokyo. So I used those. But the size has drifted a bit from his design in 2003. Oops.

Here's what I imagine we need (based on previous discussions of and ideas bandied in the forums) Book data: Status (i.e. readers wanted, in progress, completed - I guess this would be a seperate table) Link to e-text Title Author Year published?

Please put me down for 6-7, 24-25, & 30-31 (randomly selected--I don't know what's in any of these chapters!)
