Looking for someone to read classic novels such as:

Alice in Wonderland
Anne of Green Gables
Pride and Prejudice, etc.

I will do a search and replace of the main character names. For example Anne will be changed to [ANNE].

You will then read the book to see if:
1) the changes are accurate
2) see if there are special situations that a simple search and replace missed (For example when Anne spells out her name A-n-n-e.)
3) make recommendations where important names should be changed. eg. names of parents, pets, last names.

No rewriting or corrections are required since these are Classics that are perfect as is.

Total word count:
Approx 50,000-100,000

Type of review:
Proofreading (a simple grammar and punctuation review), Other or Not Sure
