Yes, indeed! A marvelous post from a marvelous woman.

Now, I will go and don my hero's garb and finish preparing another book for submission. <smile>

Isn't that lovely?  I do not feel like a hero, but that is very beautiful!

Dear Booksharian Friends,



Volunteering is a fascinating, fulfilling blessing resulting in my
reading wonderful books, learning new things and getting to know
people I enjoy, care about and admire. I wrote this parody of Paul
Overstreet's song, "Heroes," with all Booksharians in mind.

Booksharian Heroes



He opens up his scanner

In the hours before dawn

So he can finish up this book

Before the day is gone.

He optimizes settings

He holds the book down tight

Scannoes out and page breaks in

The whole book must be right.



You know heroes come in every shape and size,

Making special sacrifices for others in their lives.

No one gives them prizes,

The world don't know their names,

But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same.



She Turns on her computer.

She'll work extra hard today.

Someone wants to read this book,

They need it right away.

She reads the pages word by word.

She doesn't stop for breaks.

She spell checks and double checks,

And fixes the mistakes.



We know heroes come in every shape and size,

Making special sacrifices for others in their lives.

No one gives them prizes,

The world don't know their names,

But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same



You sit down to read e mail.

You've just joined a new list.

You still don't know just how it's done.

You're trying to get the gist.

You're starting to get answers

For questions that you send

And the person who's been helping you

Has now become your friend..



Remember heroes come in every shape and size,

Making special sacrifices for others in their lives.

No one gives them prizes,

The world don't know their names,

But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same.



I can't say I know all of you

But still it's safe to say

Someone out there's read your books

With gratitude today.

They're reading your book avidly

Excusing your mistakes.

There is no doubt about it,

Cause you've got all it takes.



Bookshare heroes come in every shape and size,

Making special sacrifices for others in their lives.

No one gives them prizes,

The world don't know their names,

But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same.



I'm talking about heroes.

Extraordinary Heroes.

Booksharian Heroes!



Always with love,



Lissi
