[bksvol-discuss] Re: Booksharian Heroes

What a terrific tribute to the volunteer spirit!
Thank you Lissi for sharing that with all of us --- I sent it out to the 
Bookshare Team and received a response from Jim saying he'd actually blogged it 
this morning here: 
http://benetech.blogspot.com/2008/08/booksharian-heroes-hit-40000.html

Your poem came at a time when we are celebrating another special milestone: 
40,000 books in the collection as of yesterday!

So many reasons to smile and say thank you ...

Ann,

    Thanks for the explanation. I had tried looking up Filk in the
dictionary, but no go. I then asked my kids if this was a new slang word I
hadn't heard yet, but they were puzzled, too. Thank you for solving the
mystery. Smile.
