p.s. you've got some errors in your links, many of the links going to the same book.

Sorry about the links. I have just spent the past hour trying to correct them. For some reason blogger keeps screwing up. It is showing me that the link is correct...then when I go back it isn't. I give up for now. I do have most of them corrected. Thanks for the heads up ;)
