I'd like to see that too. And I wish there was some way of seeing how many times particular books are downloaded.

I think your idea for the bibliographies is a wonderful one. Do people have similar theme lists they're working with that they'd like to contribute? Definitely something we should consider formalizing and putting on the website. I'll be sure to copy this email out and put a star on it that says "hey, new person, follow up on this, because it's cool!"
Sarah, I can give you a category count but I can't give you a more specific topic count. Would you find it interesting if I showed you some numbers about how the category counts have changed since we first launched?

I love your idea!
Just yesterday or the day before I was talking about how interesting it would be if someone did some work to find out what topics bookshare has a lot of books about, and then check to see how well a person could do using bookshare to do some hypothetical research assignments. For some reason the word "bibliographies" didn't pop in to my mind, but that is exactly what would be useful.
Not that I would wish to do anything but a strictly hypothetical research project. :-) Well, maybe the research itself could be real, but the paper that is supposed to result would never be produced. LOL

onHere is an idea for bookshare. We can have a place where a list of bibliographies are stored. For instance, there can be a list of booksthe holocust, and lists for other topics or themes. I have begun toputtogether a few tentative lists, one on non-western religion, forinstance,and another on history themes. Ones which immediately spring to mindarebooks about the Civil War, the American Revolution and such. Theselistsmight be valuable to students. The one about the Civil War couldincludeinhistories, plus fiction about the war.
The lists of nominees and winners of various prizes could also be keptthe bibliography section of bookshare. We might be able to get grantstocreate books about particular subjects. By the way, what about theidea ofscanning a few books on grant writing for those of us inclined tolearn theart.
