HI Cindy, I generally leave the information about other books the author has written. I haven't found that front and back covers scan all that well due to stylistic type face.

I also scan the front flap and back flap. I put all these in the frontm, but I know Shelley generally puts them in the back. I add them to books that don't have them when I validate. What people also seem to scan are the pages that have other books by the author; I think that's optional, but the general feeling is that people might like to read those if they like the first book. I know that's how I started reading other Bertrice Small books, and Isaac's Storm after reading The Devis in the White City. BTW, Isaac's Storm is in the collection. It's about the 1900 devastation of Galveston by a catagory 4 hurricane. It's very readable, and with Rita headed toward the Texas coast, it's timely. I understand Galveston this time has been evacuated. Only the mayor and city manager are staying. The 1900 hurricane was the deadliest catastrophic even in the U.S. I read today that so far 1000 have been killed in Katrina; Galveston's dead numbered 6,000--more according to another report.
