I haven't read the entirety of the synopsis thread, so apologies if this
has been suggested before.
Would it be possible to set up a specific bookshare.org email address to which readers could send in synopses? That is, say a reader downloads a book that has no synopsis, or a very generic one. The user reads the book, and can then synopsize the book much better. Do the admins have the ability to change a synopsis once a book is on site?
I can see something like this getting really out of hand with people changing synopses all over the place, but perhaps if there were general rules--you can only suggest a summary if there is none or it gives almost no information, etc. A system of this sort has worked before for online, nonpublished fiction archives I've seen, though they were mostly on a much smaller scale.

Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind; Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave. I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
