Children and teen books, in accessible form, are especially important as
instilling the love of reading both for pleasure and information is best
done at a young age.
And having good quality, both in content and scanning quality, will
instill those values down the road.
A youngster who downloads a BookShare book and sees them almost perfect in
scanning quality will strive for the same when and if they do scanning
So, I am far more concerned that a Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Bailey Kids,
Goose Bumps, Black Stallion, et al book is at near perfection than for a
similar adult book.
So while some might argue that BookShare's collection is somewhat lopsided
with an overweighting of younger reader books,
this will pay handsome dividends down the road for BookShare or any
similar service down the road.
