Hey, Anne, well said. I don't know why people dwell on things so much and whine and cry about them and dissect them to pieces and all that. If special hold arrangements have been made, great, there'll be something to proof later on down the road. I want to know what's going on with the list, but I feel forced to remain on vacation setting a lot because of the drama. If we spent the time doing what we are on this list for--scanning and proofreading and not dwelling and whining and upsetting the precious sighted and unsighted volunteers who are doing outstanding jobs, then we'd have more in the collection slowly but surely. Some months ago, people were whining that there weren't enough books in the checkout section, and now they're complaining because there are possibly too many books in the collection. After somebody figured it up and gave us the percentages, why should all this have been brought up when there are only 64 out of 438 or more books on hold and some of that by special arrangement. Do I have something to proof every day? No, I wait and look at the list until I find something I like if there truly isn't anything in the checkout queue. I admit I'd do a little more, but page numbering and paragraphing are intimidating to me but I do my part when I can. If we spent time shrinking the checkout pile and growing the collection, we wouldn't clutter up this list needless going around and around mountains we've already been around. I just get tired of folks complaining no matter what the situation whether it be bookshare or anything else for that matter. Just my two cents. Have a blessed day. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ann Parsons" <akp@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi all,I've been reading this thread for the past day. There have been some thirty messages about it. I don't understand. The problem was solved in January. Some books have been kept on the hold list by request. If that's the case, then leave them alone and quit whining. Get a life! Great gobs zucchini, life is too short to spend thirty messages on this topic especially since it's been solved already. <deep sigh>Ann P. -- Ann K.
