HI Valerie, I agree completely that books presented as poetry in print absolutely should be that way in bookshare's collection. An asterisk between stanzas for me as both a braille and auditory reader is the absolute best way to present poetry, given the capabilities of bookshare's tools.

I sent this to Carrie, but I also thought I would send it to the list. Before I go to give away some of my children's poetry books like Dr. Seuss, I went to look at some, especially early additions. I notice few to none are formatted as poetry (for visual readers) with lines preserved to show how they are composed. I realize both styles help one group or the other, but unless we can preserve both paragraph and poetry format of poetry, it seems to me it should be presented as poetry in lines and stanzas. Would this be a good use of BSO or not? I know Nichole prefers reading poetry as lines, not paragraphs as do I, but am wondering what others think. How annoying would the asterisk (star) be between stanzas for those who listen instead of reading Braille or text? Thanks as always for your feedback!
