[bksvol-discuss] Re: BookShare Question

Let me point out, though, that after having the limit extended that there will be no additional extensions for that month. I think there is a better approach. There is no way that you are going to read 200 books in one month. I would suggest just browsing the catalog carefully and choosing the books you will actually read and download them. The others will still be waiting for you when you are ready to read those and you can download them then. That way you will have a steady stream of books to read and you will never have to worry about the hassle of reaching your limit or getting that limit extended.

Hi Jane, no there would be no problem getting more stuff to download.
The same procedure applies regardless of your student status. I'm not a
student and I can write to the Bookshare folks if I reach a download
limit and request the number count be rolled back. Regards, Kim
Friedman.

Oh, the subscription has been paid for with credits I was given. I meant
would it be a problem for me to get my download limit extended even
though I am not a student?

Hi, Jane, if you are no longer a student, you will have to come up
with the money to pay for your subscription. If you can't afford to do
that, there are folks with credits who can donate them to somebody who
can't afford the yearly fee which is $50. I generally can pay for my
subscription and did so right from the start but you'll have to judge
whether you have the income to do that. If you happen to be a
volunteer who submits books via scanning to Bookshare, proofreads them
or both, every book that is entered into the collection gives you a
credit of $2.50 per book, ergo if you submit ten books and proofread
ten books and all are added to the collection, then you've paid for
your subscription for all intents and purposes. Does this help?
Regards, Kim Friedman.
P.S.: Since I don't scan books, I'd have to proofread twenty books to
pay for my subscription. K.

You do.  Almost as soon as I got the email confirming my subscription
had been activated, I opened up Read2Go and started searching for
books. And I couldn't stop.  I'm not a student now, though.  It won't
matter?

I have already downloaded half of the monthly book limit.  How hard
is
it to get an increase from support?  I read one last night, got rid
of
it, forgetting I should save it, too.  If I have to download the book
later again, it will count, I guess?

I am so loving this Read2Go app.  The trouble is that I go searching
for one book or type of book and find lots, so I just, um sort of
grab
them all.

Jane
