Unfortunately, the reader for sections 01-02,11, 13-16 hasn't been on the forum since June 17, and has not picked my message from July 10. So I will go ahead and orphan the sections.

The reader for sections 12 and 23 hasn't been on the forum since June 26 and also hasn't replied to my message. These sections are also now reopen for claims.

Sections assigned, thanks for claiming.

Yes, this project has already suffered from readers claiming a lot and disappearing so... if you for any reason cannot complete them, please let us know. :)

Hi Leni,

Please can I ask a silly question?

Are the below sentances to signify what is started at the beginning of each chapter? Or is that the chapter names?

Section 12 Book 4, Chapters 21 to 34 BlakeSG Of keeping one's promise
Section 14 Book 5, Chapters 1 to 6 BlakeSG Of being worsted in a contest of benefits
Section 15 Book 5, Chapters 7 to 16 BlakeSG Whether a man can be grateful to himself, or can bestow a benefit upon himself

I cannot seem to find either in the project text? Am I looking in the wrong place?

Hello, Blake

No, those are not chapters names or beginnings of chapters: those are just summaries of what is covered in each section. I add them to Notes so people have a general idea of the topic each section contains. I tend to do that in books that have no titles for chapters, because otherwise you would just get something like

Book 1, Chapter 1 to 5
Book 1, Chapter 6 to 15
etc.

without a hint of what they are. Some Book Coordinators do exactly that but, as a reader myself, I never claimed in projects like that because I had no idea what the chapters were. Knowing what each section contains is a way to inform the readers before they claim, without making them open the book and read the whole thing before even claiming. :) But also that is why it is in the Notes column, not on the Title column, because they are not really titles.

So, you won't find them in the book. There, you should just read the chapters mentioned in the title column. :mrgreen:
