Thanks Anne :D
I just deleted one from the Wiki that was showing up in Fiction and non-Fiction (two years in the forbidden city).
I was thinking, should we include the total number of M4B projects in the first post and update it regularly?

Thanks - I dithered with a few of them about where to put what - there were some comments that some of the things didn't really happen :( - I meant to check up what Jc had classified it under. I dithered a bit about myths and legends too - it was not as simple as I thought it would be to seperate them
We could , though there are some difficulties getting an exact number .
I quite like posting mile stones though - only 31 to go to reach 500 :D

Anne
re exact number - I should explain . some of the wiki entries are for more than 1 book - like Candide and Zoltaire , some are for a whole series - like the Decline and Fall .. but others like Gray's Anatomy there is one for each part - so I just go on archive entries :D

Thanks Anne :D
There's a problem with the link to the Wiki from the catalog page, on all of these last German ones apparently: the link "Buch auf M4B..." does not work, it is not even clickable. I've tried to go to WP but I cannot see anything wrong. :?:

That was quick work - Gregg only got it catalogued earlier today (my time) - thank you for that, will get the link into the catalogue page. Do you have a secret source of old covers ?

I usually look first at the Gutenburg e-text to see if they included any of the art work. A lot of times there are covers and interior illustrations so I grab those and use them to make the artwork for the m4b. If Gutenburg doesn't have any, I look for wikipedia entries or Wikimedia-commons to find any PD artwork. Else failing to find any associated artwork, I make up something using PD artwork that I like such as pictures from NASA.

Thanks, I've worked out a system to make them so it doesn't take too long now as long as I can find a source for the underlying artwork.

Also, I uploaded Triplanetary by E.E. "Doc" Smith to page 3 and have wikied/linked it.
