From WikiSummaries, free book summaries

Revision as of 10:35, 25 August 2006 by Admin (Talk | contribs) (Amazon's Best Sellers)

Welcome to WikiSummaries

Free book summaries that anyone can edit!

422 articles in English

Open Call to Editors aims to provide free summaries of books. This will compliment Wikipedia, which is already an excellent source of information on authors and brief book summaries. Where Wikipedia leaves off, WikiSummaries will continue with character summaries, detailed chapter summaries, analysis of metaphore and symbolism, etc.

What WikiSummaries needs is go-get-'em style people that are willing to help with this project. We need your help!

Basic Guidlines for Consistency

  • Don't begin pages with articles. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn vs The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
  • When starting a new page for a character, preface the title with a forward slash folowed by the character name. Put no spaces before or after the forward slash. Example: /Huckleberry Finn
  • When starting a page for a chapter, preface the page title with a forward slash followed by the chapter number. Do not include the chapter name in the title. Put no spaces before or after the forward slash. Example /1

Consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
