Hi Jamie, You make a good point, books being scanned is just for that. I think that your idea of the "check out a book to scan" thing is really good. I would like it if that were done because then all bookshare would have to do is put wishes on there and then once a wish has been scanned and moved on to be proofread it automatically goes off of the scanned page.
