I've found Project Gutenberg and Distributed Proofreaders to be wonderful sources of material for reading, at reasonable prices (you can't beat free). Contributing time and effort to this cause is very satisfying, and this page helps me keep track of all phases of my projects. It does not include any proofing, formatting, SRing or PPVing done for others' projects, which I also enjoy.

Listed are titles and projects that I am processing, or have processed through DP. I'm performing PM, CP, and PP duties on these, unless noted otherwise. This page shows the status of each title. A related page, Book Series contains book series I've worked on and the status of the titles in each series, including those not processed by me or through DP.
