Hi, Cindy!  Unfortunately, you're correct, Bookshare cannot retain pictures. 
Hopefully, Anastasia will have someone who can describe the pictures for her,
as I'm sure they add a lot to the story. <Smile>

BTW, I hope this e-mail comes through.  I am going on a cruise in a few weeks,
so I'm experimenting to see if I'll be able to use the computers on the ship
to check my e-mail.  I'm using FreedomBox, a Web browser designed for visually
impaired folks, and I'm checking my messages through my Web site.  I know
that's clear as mud, but I think this just might work.  I doubt that I'll be
checking my e-mail very much, though. <LOL>  Take care!

Jana
