I added the titles.
Love M. E. Braddon? Try The Lady's Mile. Want to read about children? Try On Angel's Wings or The Ship Of Stars. Want to read about growing up? Try Miss Crespigney.

I'll go ahead and do the word counts now that the chapter titles are posted.

I posted the word count for the chapters in Book 1. I should be able to post the rest of them by tonight.

Mary, I think there was a miss understanding between us. I waited for you to do the wordcounts before posting the titles. The titles are a bonus, nobody really reads them when claiming a chapter. I was very surprised when Jo wanted me to submit them first. It is not a lot of work but next time please outline your expectations more clearly.

I assumed the titles would get posted before the word count is posted. It’s a good thing that you got them posted. I was away from the computer most of the time for several days and didn’t have a chance to do anything on this.

I think it’s nice when the chapter titles are posted, even if the narrator doesn’t read them.

The narrator reads them, but you don't select a chapter by the title I guess. Anyhow they are posted and that's it.

I disagree, Stav. Regardless, the titles must be entered. Word counts are in fact optional and up to the BC if they want to include them.

Even though word counts are optional, I personally like that feature. I think it’s especially good for a fairly new reader who may not be ready for one of the longer chapters. By knowing the word count they can choose one of the shorter chapters.

I was about to post the word count for Book 2 when I noticed that Chapter IX is missing. I didn't post anything because don't know how it's supposed to be inserted, and didn't want to mess up anything.

This is the title:

CHAPTER IX
THE PROBLEM OF THE SOUTH
