Lewis, Sinclair: Elmer Gantry. v1. 29 June 07
Elmer Gantry...well, well, well. If you want to know what a religious hypocrite looks like - in terms of human nature (or if you already know) - then Gantry will be a "familiar" figure to most of us.
Here's one quote:
"[A] satiric indictment of fundamentalist religion that caused an uproar upon its publication in 1927. The title character of Elmer Gantry starts out as a greedy, shallow, philandering Baptist minister, turns to evangelism, and eventually becomes the leader of a large Methodist congregation. Throughout the novel Gantry encounters fellow religious hypocrites, including Mrs. Evans Riddle, Judson Roberts, and Sharon Falconer, with whom he becomes romantically involved. Although he is often exposed as a fraud, Gantry is never fully discredited."
I hope you enjoy it.
I just found out that navigating through the chapters ONLY works if the toggle switch is moved UP or DOWN, even if the chapter is to the left or right.

I've done a number of books where I've laid out the TOC in the form:
1 2 3 4 5
and, as you say, it is naturally to try to use "cursor right" to go to the next link rather than "cursor down". You soon get used to it, though.
Currently proofreading The Poison Belt, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
