Gerlad, I agree. That's a much better arrangement than having to locate the Web Braille version. <Smile> Thanks again!

Jana,

I've got something just as good for validating: a very sweet wife who will
help check questionable places in the scan. I have to admit, though, that I
had to ask for a lot more help with this one than I usually do. Jan Karon's
books seem to take four or five times more effort to validate than normal
books.

LOL! In the future, one thing that may help is to have a copy of the Web
Braille version, unless you don't have a way to access those. I know that
some people feel strongly about having books on Bookshare that are already
available through NLS, but I think it's perfectly acceptable to be able to
access a book from more than one source. I'm not talking about copying, I'm
talking about comparing, so that you know that it's dialect and not scannos.
If that doesn't make sense, I apologize. I'm still having a hard time
expressing myself right now, with all this pain in my head and everything.
<Smile> Take care!

Extremely hard to validate if you don't just rubber stamp them. <Smile>
Part of the time you don't know if you're looking at scanning errors or
valid words because of her writing style.  As I told Gustavo in my
comments,
"At's jis' th' way 'at th' ol' gal writes."

Hi, Gerald! I was just wondering if anyone had scanned this one. I
haven't
checked the validation list for a while, so I didn't realize it had been
posted. I love the Mitford books, so I'm excited to read this one. I can
imagine that they would be hard to validate, though. <Smile>

I just uploaded the last book in Jan Karon's Mitford series for Gustavo's
approval.  I'll send him a message since it showed up on the New York
Times
Bestseller List for Hardcover Fiction yesterday.  In case you're
wondering,
it's at number two.

You'll find the long synopsis below.  I didn't include it in the
synopsis,
but the book jacket contains the following announcement:

Coming in 2007: Jan Karon's new series, The Father Tim Novels

BTW, I'm working on getting the rest of the books in the series on
Bookshare.  Bookshare currently has all but three.  They're a bit of a
pain
to validate because of her writing style, so I'm not sure when I'll get
them
finished.  I'm about halfway through These High, Green Hills, but I can
only
handle so much of validating her books at a given time and need a break
from
her writing style.

Jan Karon saved the best for last.

"The long-anticipated final volume in the beloved Mitford years Series

Father Timothy Kavanagh has been asked to "come up higher" more than
once.

He did, after all, raise a thrown-away boy, adopt a dog the size of a
Buick,
and recite his wedding vows at the tender age of sixty-something. But
he's
never been asked to do the impossible. While farm-sitting with Cynthia
outside Mitford, the retired Episcopal priest is charged with the revival
of
Holy Trinity, a mountain church that's been closed for forty years. His
bishop's further mandate: "Get it up and running, ASAP." Fortunately,
like
Daniel, he's been given an angel (albeit one with an unlikely talent for
barbering).


Though challenged and often doubtful, Father Tim's soul lifts up as he
gathers the flock that dwells "above the clouds."

Among them is the bedridden Dovey, who lives with the clues to her
mysterious illness in plain view. Robert, who wrestles with the aftermath
of
a crime Father Tim is convinced he didn't commit. And the antisocial
Jubal,
who's trying hard to hold God at gunpoint.


But that isn't all Father Tim is struggling to say grace over:

Louella sends him on a wild goose chase to find Miss Sadie's long-hidden
cash. A windstorm knocks his household winding.  Two beloved Mitford
friends
are also called to come up higher. And answered prayer comes knocking at
his
door. In Light from Heaven, you'll find characters and themes both old
and
new, and answers to questions asked by millions of readers since the
series
began.

You'll also find a heartfelt surprise:

After a debilitating blow to the head, Edith Mallory is speaking
again-and
what she says is shocking.

Whatever you do, don't miss this last-and best-trip to Mitford.
