[bksvol-discuss] Re: Number of books

But it doesn't help to scan and/or validate more books
if they don't get approved and into the collection.
Perhaps the 50 books added the other day were after I
counted the 153 in the queue, but that still leaves
103. I haven't checked today. I wish that rule about
having to use employees sisn't exist, or that they
could hire some of us for $1 a year. smile
