I've removed you from four, sorry.

I'm taking on the Kate Chopin chapter myself.
I only wanted it because it takes place at Grand Isle, Louisiana -- my neck of the woods. Camped there many a time, but I never saw any of the little bathing houses referred to. You are welcome to it.

I see I now have Sections 1, 2, and 3 set up, so I've divided the section in thirds.
In the MW notes you can tell the DPL
Section 1, end after "some guidance in reading well. -JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL
Section 2, begin at THE LIBRARY—PLEASURE AND PROFIT; end after "public library has given the largest share. -JOHN P. BUCKLEY
Section 3, begin at A WORLD WITHOUT BOOKS

The stuff I sent you should be put in the NOTES section of the MW, not in the TITLE area. Thanks.

It's OK, I'll tidy that up before I catalogue. And yes I did add the sections so Michele could start recording.

Michele and Maria added to the project.

Anne, I've altered the title (Part 1, part 2, part 3) per Michele's suggestion of the title work, which is written by various authors and edited by Chalmers Hadley.

I've also pm'd echoism (-responded. File set by July 19th.)

Alithia and notno, as they haven't been on thread in several months.

Okay, I'd like to claim 21, then. And if there is one that talks about where all these library books are procured from, I'd be interested in that. I can't imagine they buy them retail from the book store!

MW updated for msfry, Section 21.

I believe that most library books are remaindered works from publishing houses. Overstock, titles that didn't sell, etc. Also legacy books -- people will their personal libraries to the public library instead of having them liquidated for profit.

Btw, if you know anyone who lives in Florida, there's a bookstore in Tampa that has lost its lease on a storage facility and needs to unload the extra books. They are mostly used books in good condition. I've been in the shop before, they had $4 hardcover vintage editions of people like Fannie Hurst and a more recent volume of the Complete Saki. Both of these would be in my own library today if I had just brought enough cash that day! :( I think this is their website:
http://oldtampabookcompany.com/
