Yes. :D The proof reading I did was on the english Version, my german still isn´t good enough to proofread a german language text. As far as I know, there will be 200 plus photos (I proof read 235 + titels) so even if a few are dropped there will be tons of eye candy :D

As soon as I´ve got info on the books release I´ll let it be known.
