I think they would be a good idea. They may be reference materials for folks majoring in music.

Does anyone want me to process them and submit them to the download list? I didn't think there were many members who were classical music fans so I haven't touched them yet. The bars of music will certainly be unreadable, but the text should be okay. What do you think?

I'm majoring in music so it looks like an interesting read. MissWings At 01:18 PM 8/18/2007, Shane Christenson wrote: >Hi, fellow booksharians.
