Just to be a contrarian, I'm not convinced that every book on the download
list is actually worth being validated so am inclined to think that Marissa
was on the right track in this regard.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: renewing books again and again
I think/hope you've started a good trend, E, by doing that, i.e., stating what and why you've released a book --also by releasing it instead of rejecting it right away. If, for example, it was Mike's book, he could read the post, download the book himself and fix it by rescanning pages or whatever. In the case of the Dale Carnegie book, others can cooperate and work on it. I hope others will follow your example.
The books I've taken no one else wanted for more than 9 months, in some cases year. I doubt anyone would bother to rescan them -- they are, except for the most recent one I've taken that I'm working on, and a couple that will be put up when I get the books that need my eyes, are romances. I may reject or I may fix. I didn't want them deleted from the download list, and people were complaining that the list was too long. Marissa had said that books that had been on the list for over a certain amount of time would be deleted, and so I took these. If anyone wants to validate them or wants to know what they are, I'd be happy to release them to you. Just write to me offlist, or if there's enough interest I'll post the titles. There are only 6 left. They are txt with, I suspect based on the ones I've completed, missing and duplicated pages and fractured sentences.

If you find you are working on a book and it is taking a lot of effort and you say something on the list perhaps someone has an idea to streamline it. Also, when I give up and release a book, I have started mentioning the book and what caused me to quit on this list. Since there is no way for successive validators to officially leave one another notes about a book, this is as close to a running commentary as I can get.
I only know for myself rank spelling vastly streamlines what I can do to fix up a book.
