Report & help check download problems, corrupted files, badly-named files, bad links etc. (NOT for style & reading complaints)

Hello, I am Eunah.
I downloaded a science fiction entitled "Greener than you think" and greatly enjoyed listening to Lee Eliot's reading.
I first discovered this book through an inserted segment in the Librivox Community Podcast 80, hosted by Cori. The ragtime music right after the reading was a wonderful combination.
Anyway, I have a little request to the admins here about this book. The catalog page for "Greener than you think"
http://librivox.org/greener-than-you-think-by-ward-moore/
does not provide any link for the etext of the book. I first thought that the cataloger for this project did not link to any etext because there was no online text for this book. But after searching for the title "Greener than you think" on the PG Online Book Catalog, it was discovered that the etext for this book has already been released in January, 2008.
You can find the text at the following link:
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/24246
It might be too late to add a link to an etext of this book to the catalog page, but I hope someone can add this link so listeners, especially ESL students, can listen to this audiobook while following along the linked PG etext.
Thank you for reading this message.

Hi Eunah,
Thanks for pointing that out - I've added the link to the Gutenberg text to the catalog page!

Eunah, it may be that when Lee recorded the work, the text may have still ben in the Distributed Proofreading stage at Gutenberg, and not have been available for general readers there. If I'm not mistaken, I think that this was one of the books that was part of the first SFFAudio "Make an Audiobook" challenge, and I believe that the text that was linked to there was from Manybooks.net, not Gutenberg.

Yes, when the project started there wasn't a link to gutenberg, and I didn't think to check when I cataloged it.
