Gustavo doesn't show it on Bookshare's home page yet, but I
happened to do a
couple of searches using the Advanced Search page  earlier and
found that
the collection has 23,774 books in English and 274 books in
Spanish.  That's
a total of 24,048 books in the collection.  That leabes three
and a half
months to break the goal of 25,000 by the end of the year.
