For this book, select a chapter that you'd like to read and let me know and I can assign it to you.

Because this will be your first section, I also need to know what name you want to be known by in the Catalogue. It can be your real name, your forum name, or something else.

I have just this very minute assigned section 3, but I can give you section 2. However, we first need you to do your 1 minute test so that we can be sure that your setup is working well. Instructions on how to do this are in the 1-minute thread in the top section of the main forum page.

I'll reserve section 2 for you for a week while you sort out the test.
