[bksvol-discuss] Re: keeeeping books a long timewas Re: Poseidon's Gold

Like many people, I read word for word, even when I know the submitter is one 
who does an excellent job of pre-proofing, but my reasons for keeping some 
books a long time are (1) they're very long books and need work, or (2) I'm 
working on other books or image descriptions at the same time. However, if I 
know a person wants the book done ASAP I do it first and work on it only. 
Another reason is that I have the print book from a library that has unlimited 
renewals or I have it on long-term loan.
However, you make me realize me that I should ask the two people's books that 
I've been putting off doing ( (one because something else is due at the 
library) and the other because it is a tome and I have it from a place from to 
which  it doesn't have to be returned until requested. if they need the 
creddits (of course, I have credits I can donate, I think, though they may have 
ben used up.

This may be a good time to remind people that if they need credits for 
membership they can ask on the list if someone has credits they can give to 
them, or ask Madeleine if there are credits in the credit pool that can be 
given.
