[bksvol-discuss] Re: BookShare Party???

I've got some space left in my backpack, but I'm headed to Louisville. I won't be going to Vegas until later in the Summer. Who knows, by then, Pratik might be parolled.

Allison,
Obviously, you already meet the basic requirements for attending a Bookshare function. It's too bad you won't be able to attend one of the Conventions this year. It will be safe as Pratik isn't going. I guess that electronic thing on his ankle is more of an inconvenience than he expected.

Oh, my goodness! I thought the same thing but couldn't bring myself to
mention it. I've just about gotten myself into trouble on one list last
night already so I figured I'd keep my mouth shut. I'm laughing now, though!


Take care.

I have been active in another group that does have an anal meeting. They
move it around that country each year to make it easy over time for
everyone
to make it.


I know for me it has been wonderful getting into the world of digital
books
and scanning. Many books I have wanted to read have been a little off
the
beaten path. Between scanning some and beginning to find some here on
the
site I love it! I am already behind or should have say have a number
books
waiting in my reading queue. So many books and so little time:) Hmmmmm,
I
guess I am going to have to get one of the portable readers and listen
to
book while out paddling on the river!

We really should have volunteer get togethers at a central location at
some
point. Even if we need to split it into different parties depending on
location and transportation, it would be fun! I feel like I know many of
you


so well, and it would be great to meet some of you!

Hi Everyone,

I love this list. I think I'm going to miss out on a fun convention.

You guys just let us know when the party is, and we'll party here with

you! <grin> lol.

I love to sit outside and read a good book on my loving Voice note,
and
drink a cold beer. Cheers to the BookShare Volunteers and staff! One
more
round! lol.

Lovings!

I met up with Pratik, Guido, Donna Smith, Louis, and Gustavo, at the
Pittsburgh ACB convention what was it two years ago, and I honestly
don't
think Cristo's Greek Grill will think of blind people ever the same
way
again.  Was quite a lot of fun, and not a lot of alcohol, not really
smile.
We were their only customers that night but we stayed three hours, and
had
all the courses, including dessert, yum, and talked of a lot of things
including Christian Romances from the nether region, smile.

But it was fun, and getting there was great too, as I think Gustavo
was
the
only one who was normally sighted out of the group.  But such fun, and
Guido, is really that interesting in person.

Kasondra,

As you can probably tell by now, things here on the
list get pretty crazy before conventions. The party
hats and other things that guido probably will bring,
like bottle of wine and stronger stuff to drink to
Marissa's health are probably virtual. Everybody seems
to have so much real fun, ithough, as well as virtual
fun -- and sees so much new and wonderful technology
-- and now IBM is having job interviews.  Wonderful.

Have fun all of you. We atay-at-homes will miss you.
(Maybe you'll find a replacement for Marissa there --
I  nominate Carrie, though,m or doesn't she want a
full-time job.)

Cindy

  What
