Some folks like a neat and tidy list, I like one with lots of choices. I'd be delighted to validate books that I know are on recommended reading lists that will mean they are read by many young folks.

I have several of the music books here at home, waiting for me to validate them. They are so messed up, I have to do them myself. Since Bookshare got that grant to put textbooks into the collection, Claire gave me a list of books on teacher recommended reading lists (elementary through high school) that are rated good in the collection. I picked up 25 of them (half the list) at a used bookstore this weekend. I was intending to scan the books and submit them as BSOs, but I don't want to foul up your scheme of clearing out the BSOs by Christmas. Want me to wait until after Christmas to submit them? I'm hoping that there will be relatively few books on our December and January bestseller lists, so I can validate a lot of them myself.

Carrrie has been hard at work supplying Bookshare readers with majorly improved copies of a lot of science fiction books that were virtually unreadable before she tackled them. I see a bunch of these that are still on step 1. You can find them quickly if you have your screenreader search for the letters BSO. At our request, she also processed a bunch of books about classical music and some classic mysteries too. Who wants to join me in getting her hard work into the collection? I'm not a sci fi fan, but I know many people enjoy these books. I'm taking a book now. I hope it's interesting. Maybe I'll like it. Whether I do or not, the important thing for me is to support Carrie and improve the quality of our collection. By Christmas, let's have no BSO titles left behind.
