[bksvol-discuss] Re: Admin. Q

I'm perfectly willing to change my text, but as I thought I'd already veted it 
thorroughly before I posted it, I'd prefer to hear from someone else with a 
fresh perspective.  I may be completely overlooking something and would like to 
know what that is not only for this particular book, but also for future 
submissions.
Thanks to anyone who takes the trouble to look at Julian's Cat and let me know.
It's a kid's book and not all that long.

  I agree, though I'd say less than 3 months. I'd say
  one month. In the case of Julian's Cat, remembering
  the discussion about a poem in it here on the list, I
  opened it to see if it was Gary's book, and it is.
  It's been released, probably accidentally, since it
  was by the same person, numerous times, and then also
  by a "bookshare volunteer."

  Gary, I didn't download the book and I didn't see any
  comments, so I have no idea why it's back on page one.
  Cindy Dresden or something like that is the person who
  was working on it, and I don't think she's on this
  list. I think Lissi, who kindly is not using the name
  "Cindy" and I are the only Cindy's here--thouhh now
  that I tink of it, I don't think I know her last name.
