The reality is that somebody is going to have to invest a good deal of time compiling the book. Unless somebody has interest in donating this time for free, their efforts ought to be compensated. We can think about how in more detail but there will be a good deal of compiling and editing involved I suspect.

Hi. You know how we all have been discussing our disabilities, and I believe it was Cindy who suggested compiling a book. Well I think it is a fantastic idea, so I asked a colleague/friend of mine about writing the Preface, and I receivedthis response. In many cases, before the preface is written, the book needs to be written.You need to find someone who can take everyone's comments and organize them intoan outline, then into the pages of a book.Once the outline is written, you all will probably have an idea of how long thebook will be, and what will actually be covered within the books contents. I would suggest designating a person within the Bookshare Readership who would actually do the organization of the text, with the understanding that this book would be a publication by the collective readers of Bookshare, perhaps with any profit from the book going directly to Bookshare or some other organization. At the very least, the book could educate people about resources such as Bookshare, and therefore the credit for the book wouldnot be directed at one individual. You could establish regular meetings, as thebook was being compiled, to make sure that everyone had equal input into the creation of the book. Any ideas? Hope this helps.
