[bksvol-discuss] Re: List of the books we're working on

And may I say thank you to whoever buys books for Bookshare. I just looked 
through that list of upcoming books and found a whole handful of books by 
Leon Trotsky, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. I really did not think I would be 
listened to that well. This is one of those reasons that I wonder if 
volunteers are becoming obsolete. It appears that it is a lot more quick to get 
a 
book or a certain kind of book in the collection by just asking for it than 
by scanning it oneself. At least I think it would have taken me years to do 
those myself and even if I had then how long would I have had to wait for a 
proofreader?

nation be free if it oppresses other nations? It cannot." Vladimir Lenin

Carrie, thank you! This at least gives us the info we need to 
avoid duplication.
