Hi Carrie!Thank you for the link! And I intend to pay special attention to the children's books. As I ALWAYS read childrens' books from cover to cover, I think I can guarantee good scans! This is so cool! Thanks.

You want *all* of the bestsellers on Bookshare? I'd love it if people could help out. I put on the top 10 hardcover fiction and non-fiction books, and the paperback trade, mass market and non-fiction books, making a total of 50 books that I ensure are in the collection in tip-top shape. There's a lot more though. If you check the New York Times website (the lists are at <http://www.nytimes.com/indexes/2008/02/02/books/bestseller/index.html>http://www.nytimes.com/indexes/2008/02/02/books/bestseller/index.html), you will find the bestseller lists contain:35 hardcover fiction 35 hardcover non-fiction 15 hardcover advice 10 children's picture books 10 children's chapter books 10 children's paperback books 10 children's series books 35 paperback trade fiction 35 paperback mass market fiction 15 paperback advicefor a grand total of 210 books. You'll notice I ignore the children's books and the advice books entirely. If people want to process those, it would be great! And sometimes there are books that don't quite make it to the top 10 in the other categories. Those would be good too.My one request is to make New York Times books not just excellent, but as close to perfect as possible. No scannos, no junk characters, no missing page numbers or page breaks - you know the drill. Because so many people read them, they really need to be top quality.HTH, Carrie ----- Original Message ---- From: maithe007 <maithe007@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, February 2, 2008 12:21:27 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: February New York Times bestsellersThat 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.Maithe ----- Original Message ----- From: <mailto:pratikp1@xxxxxxxxx>Pratik Patel To: <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, February 02, 2008 2:56 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: February New York Times bestsellersAnyone interested, should check out the <http://NYTimes.com>NYTimes.com web site.

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.Maithe ----- Original Message ----- From: <mailto:scottsjb@xxxxxxxxx>Scott Blanks To: <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, February 02, 2008 2:08 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: February New York Times bestsellersIf 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 ----- Original Message ----- From: <mailto:ckarnos@xxxxxxxxx>Carrie KarnosTo: <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>Bookshare Vol Group ; <mailto:jakeb@xxxxxxxxxxxx>Jake BrownellSent: Friday, February 01, 2008 10:53 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] February New York Times bestsellers Hi gang,Here's the list of the bestsellers.
