Hi Roger.
That is indeed a sad story of heroism. It could go under the headline "book 
gives up the ghost for bookshare."

Thanks.
Bob

And let me say that as the submitter I put this book to its last reading. It
was old and brittle and literally fell apart as I was scanning it. Several
times I had to pick up pages as they flew through the air, but now those
pages are in the Bookshare collection and can be read uncountable times as
the physical copy rests in peace.
