[bksvol-discuss] Re: Methods For Listing New Books

Hi, Sue! If you log in to Bookshare first, then go to Jake's page without closing your browser, you should be able to follow the links from his list without having to log in again. I'm very sleep-deprived, so I hope that makes sense. <Smile>

Grace, how does one mark the place on Jake's site. What I mean is, the
instructions say to login to bookshare.org for some of the links to work. I
picked out The House, by Danielle Steel, for example. Now how would I go
about logging in to bookshare.org so that I would be able to get this book
quickly and then return to Jake's Home without logging out of Bookshare??


Thanks.

Sue S.

Once I started to use Jake's page to check new books, I never go on
bookshare's new books page. Especially since there is that one day delay.
