Gutenberg has a bunch of formats that you can download. The trick is to download the one that is compatible with your system. Here is something you might want to try. OpenLibrary.org has pretty much everything Gutenberg has except for Gutenberg's public domain magazines. If you are using Bookshare then I would suppose you have a Daisy reader. Open Library's downloadable books are all available in Daisy. Their protected Daisy books, that is, the ones that are in copyright, require an NLS key to read, but all of their Daisy books from Gutenberg are available for reading without any kind of key.

Thank you everybody! I guess that means I don't need to scan this book. But tell me why I couldn't find it by author, title, or subject? I do log in (I am a user) and I don't think I have any filters on. Oh well, I have a whole stack of books to scan. An OT question, has anybody tried to download books fron Gutenberg to their computer? I have had trouble with downloading. If you know how, please tell me.

Thank you.

I'm pretty sure that if you are not logged in all you will see are excellent and publisher quality books. Even if you are logged in, you either have to use advanced search and check all quality levels, or have them set in your profile. I just put case for Christ without any quotes in quick search and the book came up as the first on the list. You also have to have adult content set in your profile or in advanced search. That isn't a problem in this case, but sometimes books accidentally get flagged as having adult content when they don't.

Hi Lori!

Yes, the quotes found it. I don't know if I can think of another time when I had to use them to find what I was searching for. Maybe something is left out of the search without the quotes.

I found it by using advanced search and putting the title in quotes in the title field. Don't know why sometimes books seem hard to find.

I did not find the book "The Case For Christ" in the bks collection either by author or title before I started scanning--a few days ago; or when I looked for it earlier in the year. Where did it hide?

"The Case for Christ" is in the collection, but it has a quality of good. I began reading it several years ago and thought the quality was better than good.
Are you submitting a BSO?

Hi,

I am in the process of scanning "The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel. I plan to scan "Facing the Future, book four of Left Behind the kids" by Jerry Jenkins and Chriss Fabrys, and rescan "I am a Soldier Too, Jessica Lynch" I know this last is in the collection, but it has a lot of errors.
