I'll be glad to set this up for you. Be right back with the MW.

Update: the MW is ready. We'll move to Readers Wanted when we find a DPL or after a couple of days.

Larry,

As I am just about finished DPLing a totally different kind of book, Theodore Savage, this seems like a nice relief from that down, dark, but very interesting story. So if you will have me, I would like to DPL this.

Thanks,

Wayne

Your are welcome with much thanks!!
This is actually an engaging account, and found myself drawn in as I just tried to scan it. Should be short and sweet.

Michael will put you in for DPL. :clap:

So I did, but if you check the MW the correct file is there.
Another reason I always PL from the MW link.

Is it too much to ask to claim chapters 2-7?

If so, you can assign me however the most chapters I can claim in one go.

Hmmm. That's the bulk of the book, but since you asked and you're such a good reader, I'm happy to have you read these. :9:
