Greetings!
Do we still have Ben Franklin's Autobiography as an active project? If so, I would like to request Sections 1 (Ancestry & Early Life") and 9 (Plan for Attaining Moral Perfection). If the project still lives and I learn anything from Chapter 9 I'll step up for more.

Yes, all the projects in readers wanted books & readers wanted dramatic works are active projects that need readers. Some of the dramatic works are in progress though, and have been completed, just need to go through final editing. But yes, there are a lot of active projects, and this is one of them.

I can give you sections 1 & 9, thank you so much for claiming! :D <smile>

In listening to other readers it sounds like we are not reading the footnotes. Correct?

I did. I guess it's kind of optional. I would prefer that you include them, but footnotes I think depend on if the reader wants to read them or if they have value in them.

Thanks Tommy!
