Tiflolibros sent Bookshare several hundred Spanish books, so two inhouse volunteers have been submitting them recently. I think we're getting close to the end of their books, so the wave of new Spanish books should decrease in the next week or two.

Here is her note. I think it's wonderful if bookshare and Tiflilibros are exchanging books--or maybe, because of our copyright laws, we're only receiving and not sending? I did look at the bookshare home page, and Tiflolibros is not listed as a resource, but maybe that page hasn't been updated. the Volunteer homepage hasn't been updated either, since I think we now have more than the 25m000 plus books that are listed there.
