Hooray! I had not been aware that there was a sequel. Librivox once again introduced me to something I should have been aware of.

Hmm, I think I'll start with section 3 for now?

Edited to add: I'm getting a 404 File Not Found message when I click on the link.

oops... sorry about that... I guess it would help if I had the correct urls posted... they are now all updated =)

I haven't yet finished reading this book, but from what I have read, this will be just as good as Daddy-Long-Legs... Enjoy! =)

I'd like 1, 22, 23, 24. Unless you want first or last or the fire for yourself, and then I will gladly cede these chapters!

You know very well that if I had wanted them especially, I would already have put my name down for them ;)

I just wanted to make certain that you weren't all distracted by the question marks and so on!

Ok.. I have the chapter files sorted out so that the crazy question marks aren't there anymore. Looks like they were placeholding for extra spaces in the html file... so there may be an occassional period without a space following it... I figured that would be easier to deal with than question marks at the end of every sentence.

Let me know if there are any big problems with the text... we can always go back and consult the original PG file too if need be =)

That's what I did with Daddy Long Legs, just found the relevant portion in the text file and read that.

I didn't say I wanted chapter 2, but since you put me down for chapter 2, I will totally take chapter 2! It's not as though I wouldn't be taking more chapters anyway...
