Jamie,

 

You have already scanned Family Huddle by the Manning family. I proofread it
and it is in the collection. So, don't try to do it again. *Smile*

The Lego Star Wars book finally came in and it is too big for my scanner,
and laid out in such a way that I might have to scan each page 3 or 4 times
to get all of the text for the page.

 

I suggest that if members want this book (it was a #1 best seller) that
Bookshare should process it on their bigger and faster scanner.

I'm still waiting for Lego Star Wars to come in from the library. Waddle and
Listen to the Wind have been submitted. The Lion and the Mouse is already in
the collection.

 

I couldn't find Family Huddle in the collection. I was able to inter-library
request it though so I will work on it when it gets here.

I could not find Witch and Wizard in the collection. The Hunger Games and
Catching Fire are in the collection. Fallen is not in the collection.
Beautiful Creatures is in the collection. Shiver is not in the collection.
Thirteen Reasons Why is in the collection. Hush Hush is in the collection.
I couldn't find Captivate in the collection, but Tricks is there. I think
Carrie said she would work on the chapter books.
