[bksvol-discuss] Re: 39,000+ Re: Let's Give The Bookshare Staff A Big Hand!

Hi Shelley and Chris,

Our growth rate has been steadily increasing. We're now adding on average quite a bit more than 100 books a week. For example, it was just about 7 weeks ago that I wrote about reaching 38,000. 40,000 by Labor Day sounds like a sure bet to me, gone are the years when we averaged just 5,000 books, grin.

Why not set a more aggressive goal and see if we can make it? Maybe 40K by
Thanksgiving?

I can almost garantee we will make 40,000 by Jan. 1, even without trying.
On average we do about 100 books a week.

Hi, everybody. Have you all noticed how smoothly things are running
this week, even though Bookshare staff are traveling for the conventions?
Remember how everything used to totally shut down during convention week and for most of the beginning of July? No new books, no customer support, and no communication. Wow! I am impressed this year. Lisa, Carrie, and the rest of the staff have been working hard so that our service isn't interrupted while
they do the conventions. Thanks too all of you for keeping things going.
(big smile) What a wonderful Independence Day gift to wake up to 45 new
books in the collection.
