New Ukulele Chord Solo Book under Construction

I’ve tabbed 19-odd old songs to be included in an e-book that I’m hoping to publish before the end of 2012. Its working title is The Social Life of the Ukulele. I intend including some of the stories on this blog (my favourites) and of course tabs for some of the tunes posted here as well. [UPDATE: SEE THIS POST]
The tunes are:

Moonlight Bay by Percy Wenrich (1912)
My Gal Sal by Paul Dresser (1895)
By the Light of the Silvery Moon by Gus Edwards (1909)
Peg o’ My Heart by Fred Fischer (1913)
Rose of Washington Square by James F. Hanley (1920)
April Showers by Lou Silvers (1921)
When You were Sweet Sixteen by James Thornton (1898)
Avalon by A. Jolson, B De Sylva and Vincent Rose (1920)
Second Hand Rose by James F. Hanley (1921)
Poor Butterfly by Raymond Hubbell (1916)
Ball-in’ the Jack by Chris Smith (1913)
Carolina in the Morning by Walter Donaldson (1922)
You Made Me Love You by James Monaco (1913)
If You were the Only Girl in the World by Nat D. Ayer (1916)
Ain’t We Got Fun by Richard A. Whiting (1921)
Pretty Baby by Tony Jackson and Egbert Van Alstyne (1916)
Somebody Stole My Gal by Leo Wood (1918)

Please let me know if you think it is worth my while…. Ta
