I proofed "The Garden of Ruth" and finished it just last week. There were quite a number of problems with the original scan, but I cleaned it all up and thought I did a very good job. I would appreciate it if you would download it and try reading it and let me know if you find more problems. I am usually very picky about my proofreading. That was a very difficult piece of work it took me quite a while. I would appreciate any feedback from the final product. The rating of "good" is only a scan, not after it is proofed. At least that is my understanding. I think it should be changed after it has been proofread. It bothers me to think that all of my work went for nothing if nobody is going to read it because of the original rating of the scan. That does not seem right. -- Doug From: bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of solsticesinger Sent: Saturday, April 24, 2010 9:08 AM To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: puzzling question It's funny that you ask this. I saw a book entitled "The Garden of Ruth" that looked like a really great historical. However, it only had a rating of "good", and so, like you, I opted not to read it. I know Carrie often sends books back for further editing, and so, I'm wondering how, in the midst of so many excellent books, we're seeing those marked good.

With some of the typos and scanos in excellent books that I've seen, did this fall into the cracks or are the reasons it only has a good rating minor? I admit I'm a bit intimidated with books only marked good. I'm afraid they'll be unreadable. I'm just curious and thanks very much for your efforts in getting this book into the collection at all. Could somebody give me a heads up on why the rating isn't excellent so maybe I can help or read the book better? Thanks and have a blessed day.
