[bksvol-discuss] Re: The hold discussion

Hi, Jill, please tell me what books you like to read. I'd love to work with
you. Do you think we could work as a team? I can't scan yet worth a damn but
would love to proofread mystery, romance, fantasy, science fiction,
historical fiction, and like stuff having to do with folklore. I'll go to
amazon.com and look around, okay? Also, I'd like to write you off list. If
you wish to write me off list, write to kimfri11@xxxxxxxxxxxx I'd do Erle
Stanley Gardner's stuff as I've read a few of the Perry Mason novels.
Regards, Kim.

Kim, I am looking for a really good book to scan that you would like to
proofread. I have a feeling that our tastes are similar. I both scan and
validate and would be happy to get the book from the library if you have a
suggestion. I would prefer to have you choose the book. Jill
