:thumbs: I see there's another Elsie book "in progress" but it looks finished. Is it just the cover incomplete?

A missing cover would not prevent a finished project from being cataloged. Sorry, but I'm not finding the other Elsie book you are referring to - can you post a link?

All the books by Martha Finley in progress or cataloged :

I saw that one, but it looks like it has a ways to go yet. Only 14 out or 23 chapters have been recorded.

Technically they aren't - only the DPL should be listening until the project is complete and in the catalog. :wink:

Hi Jo. I have to apologize here. It's too weird reading this book alongside the witches one! I'd like to open up Elsie's vacation to collaboration. Can you do that? I've recorded up to and including section 4, but find it very hard to go on. I was sorely misled by the title (silly me), and I think the book will be of interest to others to contribute to its reading. I will BC.

Thank you
Czandra

Changing the type of project in the database is simple, Czandra, but the template in the top post wiil need to be changed from the solo one to the group version when I get a chance.

Meanwhile, can you fill in the titles in the section compiler?
