Hi Cindy, Thank you so very much! And there isn't any rush. I'll submit them with holds on them for you and you can work as slowly or as quickly as you like. Thank you again so very, very much! I'll put a note in the comments section of each what each still needs. Is that all right, or do you want just to provide me the missing chapter titles/headings and their pages and have someone else proofread them? I want whatever you want about these.

Mayrie, The books, including Bermudez Triangle, are in transit . I expect to be able to pick them up next week (unfortunately not this week; we won't be gong to the city where th library is until next week). I'll get to work on them as soon as I h=get the books) Cindy Wish List (i.e., books wanted added to the collection) and books-being-scanned list available at sites below Wish List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Bookshare+Wish+List Books Being Scanned List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Books+Being+Scanned+List --- On Sun, 9/6/09, Mayrie ReNae <mayrierenae@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: From: Mayrie ReNae <mayrierenae@xxxxxxxxx> Subject: [bksvol-discuss] I need a sighted proofreader for several books, please. To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Sunday, September 6, 2009, 1:45 AM Hi Everyone, This last batch of library books that I received have what is for me a common problem. Many of them have chapter headings that did not scan well. I can't get these books up to my standards of what a book should be without sighted help. There will be very little for a proofreader to do on most of these books, but it does need to be a sighted person with a copy of the book in hand to fix what I have not been able to fix. I'll explain about each book. Sucker Punch by David Hernandez ISBN 978-0-06-117331-8 (lib. bdg.) I could not find a single place to put a chapter heading in this book. None scanned and I saw no indication of where to put them. I have proofread and formatted this book thoroughly. All that this book needs is to have chapter headings inserted, or Three asterisks in their stead, if the only indication of where sections begin is white space. The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson ISBN 1-59514-019-0 (hardcover) This book has also been proofread thoroughly. All chapter headings are present and all formatting has been done. However, the first few words of each chapter are in a font that did not scan clearly at all. A sighted proofreader would need to insert the proper first few words of each chapter. But I've done everything else. Lucky by Rachel Vail ISBN 978-0-06-089044-5 (lib. bdg.) This book too has been proofread thoroughly (every single word is what I mean by thoroughly) and formatted properly. However, not all chapter headings scanned. Some I could not figure out where to place, and some I had to guess at. I need a sighted proofreader to make sure that all chapter headings are in the proper places and enlarge and bold those that he/she needs to insert. And finally, Madapple by Christina Meldrum I won't ask anyone to proofread this book yet. I haven't read or cleaned up some junk that I can't identify. I wonder, would someone be willing to get a copy from his/her library and send me a list of chapter headings and the numbers of pages on which each begins? Then I can do the clean-up on this book and read it. Any help with any of these is much appreciated. Thanks for anything anyone is able to help with.
