As a Matter of Course, by Annie Payson Call (1853 - 1940)
The aim of this book is to assist towards the removal of nervous irritants, which are not only the cause of much physical disease, but materially interfere with the best possibilities of usefulness and pleasure in everyday life.

Source text (please read only from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4385

Target completion date: 2024-12-31

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Your MW is in place. Just a couple of things to keep in mind:
1. The gutenberg page url should be the first page, not online reader page . I have fixed this for you in this project so just note for future projects that you set up.
2. In addition to coming up with a summary, you will need add the Genre and the Keywords for the project. When you do so, please post them in a separate post in this thread as well as editing the first post to add them.
Hope this is all clear. I am here for questions/problems.
As soon as I hear back from you, I will move us to Going Solo!

Did you write the summary or did you excise it from somewhere?

Hi,

I didn’t read the book yet. So took it from Gutenberg.org.
