Someone really needs to scan it though. I'd do it, but I'm already behind on my scanning, so if someone else would that'd be great.

Oh yes! I read The Dutchess from Web Braille too. It's a great book! I read it twice and may read it again.

The Duchess is available from Web Braille, but it's not in the bookshare collection. I've read it several times, and wish that everyone could have access to it. Allison

I think it's because her books are older. Additionally perhaps some may
consider her books geared toward adults. The one that comes to mind is All
the Sweet tomorrows. Of course I've only read 3 of her books. By the way,
my library has some of her books.  Is there any particular requests? Is
there a Bertrice Small book that someone is just dying to read?

I don't know. I don't even see many of her books at big book stores.

I think writing to her is a great idea. You might tell
her how many fans she has here (you probably were
already planning t do that) and how many of her books
are already scanned and in the collection. As for our
buying her books -- I get mine from the library, but
I've looked at the bookshelves in the grocery store
and drugstores where they have popular paperbacks for
sale and not one so far has had one of hers, though
they do have other popular authors such as Maeve
Binchey, Sandra Brown, Grisham, etc. I've wondered
why. Is that something she doesn't want?

Hi all!
I wanted to run this by everyone before I went ahead
and did it. I was going to email Bertrice Small and
see if she could provide bookshare with manuscripts
of the books we don't have and whatever new ones she
writes. However, I realize that if she does this for
free, she won't make a profit. But if we agree to
pay regular price for the book in return for the
manuscript she might be more willing. I realize that
bookshare is a non-profit organization, but some
books scanned by the office are store bought, right?
I want people's opinions before I do this. If
someone higher up would rather do it, please let me
know.
