I'm sure someone else is answering this too, but I'llput in my two-cents worth. No, it doesn't matter. In fact, many people don't put in cover info. They start with the title page or, in the case of paperbacks, other front page material. When I validate, I put "cover" in brackets and put the cover info. As sighted reader, I like to see the cover first, although some hardbound have the covers mssing. I know "you can't tell a book by it's cover," but still...and I figure, even though bookshare members download books and know what they're getting, they might like to read the cover info--but maybe that's just me. smile Cindy --- Tony Baechler <bookshare@xxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi all.
