Ah! I checked my "requesters" list and it was Shelley who requested How the States got their Shapes. It's an interesting history--for grown-ups, not for children, though it sounds like it, doesn't it. It's 352 pages and was just published in May. It doesn't seem to be on the NY TIMes best-seller list which surprises me a little because of its popularity in my library. Ive started to read it. There are numerous gray-and-white maps that probably won't scan and would be impossible to describe but they just illustrate the text rather than elaborate on it. Anyone with a puzzle map of the U.S. with cut-out states like the ones we had as children could feel the boundaries that are talked about in the first chapter. This is a book which, even though I might have already read it by the time it gets submitted and by the time I finish what I'm working on I'd be willing to validate if no one else wanted to, but I'm sure there are history buffs who would be more-than-willing. I definitely recommend it Cindy ***WISH LIST (CALLED REQUESTED ADDITIONS TO THE BOOKSHARE COLLECTION)IS AVAILABLE AT http://people.delphiforums.com/jamiecalton/Book_Requests.htm http://www.friendsofbookshare.org/ http://studentpages.alma.edu/~07jmyate/book_requests.htm A LIST OF BOOKS CURRENTLY BEING SCANNED IS AVAILABLE AT http://people.delphiforums.com/jamiecalton/scanning.html http://www.friendsofbookshare.org/ Jake's site for useful links: http://www.jbrownell.com/bkslinks.html To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
