[bksvol-discuss] Re: let's decide on the fate of this poor book

Lots of folks had this book after Sarah sent it back to step 1. All I suggest is that given its long history somebody check it out.

Elizabeth and Cindy, there have been several books that Sara Blake held for an extended period of time. Is the book in question one of her holds? We have had 3 different volunteers named Sara, so I'm asking for clarification here. Though unrated, at least 3 of Sara Blake's released books have been quite easy to read and fix up. I worked on those and can only speculate that their long hold period was due to lack of time on Sara's end. I can't speak for this particular book, but I don't think that rejection should be our first course on books Sara Blake has held. One of her long-term holds was a children's book scanned by Jake that was literally flawless. She renewed it each week for 19 months time, and it didn't even have hold for on the title. I know she held it for that long because of the comments on the download form. When I took the book, I was able to validate it in around 90 minutes, reading it cover to cover. So seeing a long history in the comments section of a book doesn't always mean it's a poor scan. This is especially true if the book has been renewed repeatedly by only one person. I think the book deserves to be looked over objectively before being rejected. I have my five books right now. If it's still there when I get one of my current books done, I'll take it and see what it's like.

Well, I would be of a mind to reject it. I might feel differently
about it if it were excellent, but when the thing is good and has no
synopses or particular categories, I think I would just reject it
myself unless somebody can indicate why they didn't finish it. I
suspect, though Sarah would correct me if I am wrong, that her
seminary work has caused her not to have time to do it, but I don't
know about the rest of it.
