[bksvol-discuss] Re: February New York Times bestsellers

That is how I find-out what the latest bestsellers are.  However, I do know 
that not everybody does this.  Also, it is easier to store one little email 
which everybody can access and discuss.  It is just a thought.  It would make 
getting these bestsellers *all of them* on Bookshare.

  It would be great if every week's NY Times bestseller list could be posted on 
this list.  That way, if Bookshare does not get the books, we can get them on 
our own.  It would be a money saver and time saver all around.

    If a book is published next week, hits the NYT bestseller list, then falls 
off that list in two or three weeks, it won't make the March list. If such a 
scenario presents itself, will Bookshare be able to make middle-of-the-month 
purchases, so that all books which grace the bestseller list that are not 
already part of the collection, will be added? This leads logically to another 
question. Is Bookshare aiming to get *all* NYT bestsellers into the collection? 
Or is this based on monetary limitations and/or other criteria?

     

    Thanks,

    Scott

      Hi gang,

      Here's the list of the bestsellers.  Instead of putting in a huge order 
once a month, I've been picking the books up as I stumble across them in my 
wanderings around bookstores.  I've included the status of each book after the 
title so you can see where it is in the scanning and validation process.
