Hi, I had noticed the list being around 415 to 445 for weeks even with new additions to the checkout queue, and it's not been down in the 300s for maybe two months, so I was just wondering the reason for the change. Sorry if I didn't make myself clear enough. ----- Original Message ----- From: Valerie Maples To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, May 06, 2010 7:59 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: checkout list shrinking, what's the cause? Not sure I understand your question, Jamie, but there are 392 books on checkout, only 67 with holds, and 215 in process, with 232 waiting for approval. I think those numbers are relatively consistent for lately, maybe a few more on the awaiting approval list. I don't begin to know how Carrie keeps up!

I had been concerned about the amount of books that seemed to linger at the bottom of the list. I'm curious, did the books get taken away or are people proofreading more books actually in the queue as the amounts of books left to proof is shrinking. I didn't read the thread of messages about proofreading Spanish, but does something about this account for the list slowly shrinking or do we have more volunteers whittling down the stack? There are none on the rejection list that haven't been there for a while and I know that books are added every day so I was puzzled and wondered. Thanks and happy proofreading. Have a blessed day.
