[bksvol-discuss] Re: Poseidon's Gold

Mayrie;

I am with you; usually my delays are with getting or having a book or getting 
10 
holds in a week with books I have already bought for the purpose of 
proofreading.  Sometimes I can do 15 -20 books in a week then it will be 2 
weeks 
before I can work on a book.  With 2 people and four pets dependent on me as a 
sole caregiver, if we have a crisis, the first thing on hold is my books.  
Makes 
me sad, though, since Bookshare is my sanity saver!

I am truly grateful to the scanners who are so very patient with me!

Hi Tracy,

As I am a guilty party, having renewed one of the books that I currently
have checked out for a year, I will tell you why I at least am doing what
I'm doing.

The book that I have checked out needs image descriptions if it is to be
used properly, which I can and am providing.  Unfortunately, because I'm
working and in poor health, I don't get to my volunteering as regularly or
for as large of chunks of time as I'd like.

So, I just hope that folks will be patient with me, and appreciate the book
once I finish with it.

I agree with you, by the way, I've had this book for waaaay too long.
Thanks for the kick in the butt.  In my case, it's warranted.  fifteen
minutes of work three days a week would make a huge difference, and I intend
to give the book that on the weekends, starting this weekend.

I won't presume to speak for anyone else, but I am glad for your reminder
that I personally need to try harder, and that I can indeed do that.

It'll feel great to finish the book that I've been so lovingly creeping my
way through.

Mayrie

Last November, I submitted Poseidon's Gold, a Marcus Didius Falco mystery.
I read it, spell-checked it, fixed the chapter headings and the page
numbers--all the stuff I usually do.  I think someone could have
jiffy-proofed it, and it would have been fine.
It's been checked out since then, almost all the time, but it still hasn't
made it to the collection.  What's the hold up?

Tangentially, I really do not understand why someone faithfully renews a
book, sometimes for a whole year, and then lets it go.  When I grab a book,
it's done in about 3 weeks, usually, though I just had one that took
7 weeks.
Are people just hanging on to things, hoping to get to it, but never
actually making it that far?  It baffles me.
Tracy
