Hi All--I am recording a book published in 1877 where the beginnings of each chapter have that 19th century traditional "paragraph" of phrases summarizing what is in each chapter. This makes a long chapter very long and I think has a spoiler effect for the chapter. Can I leave this "paragraph" out? Here's a sample of what you would see: (bad formatting, but you get the picture):
CHAPTER ONE
The Memory of my Youthful Days - Early Religious Impressions - I become a Church - Member - My
Pious Admirer - A brief Homily on Feminine Vanities - My first Start in Life - Faithful Counsels of a
Friend - Life in a French School - The Maison - Martin - Preparing my Lessons - Objecting to a Protestant -"Assisting" at Service - My Ghostly Adviser The "instructions" of a Handsome Young Priest - Flirtation and Apostolic Succession - The Blind Leading the Blind - The Scene of Labor Changed - Domestic Life at St. Brieux - An indifferent Young Gentle man - The Presence of an "Icicle" - Quiet Attentions to "Mademoiselle Miss" - The Man who Waits Wins - My Affianced Lover - Reasons why a French Girl Marries - Views of Marriage among the French - Traces of Early Teachings - Mental Struggles and Doubts- I Resolve to Visit England - The Crisis of My Life.

On a solo, you may leave them out.

In a group project, ask the BC. :)

Thanks for your quick reply! It's solo, and I really dislike the summaries, so yay!
