Hi Jamie, If you upload that book, it will go directly to the administration queue for approval and addition to the Bookshare collection. If you release it now, all of your hard work will be lost. If you and Cindy want to work on the book together, hang onto it, and you guys will have to talk about what needs fixing either via e-mail or the phone, or some other way.

I fixed some hyphens and a few obvious spelling errors while preserving dialect things, but I'd like you to look at the introductionary material and the material at the end after the actual book is done to see that it's punctuated right. I'll give you a holler when I'm ready to upload so you can grab it and eyeball it before it goes out. I also got all the morns that were mom and fixed those, but there is another bigtime error in the first 25 pages that is a word that the OCR didn't recognize properly or fully that needs a little TLC. Thanks for helping me clean this one up. I'll read it tomorrow straight through and make sure nothing obvious needs to be cleaned before I upload it. My hands are hurting from finding and replacing all the morns and dashes but I did it. Thanks again. Have a blessed day. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, August 21, 2008 9:32 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: still more questions > Jamie, > > The book is supposedly in my branch and I'll get it tomorrow if it is.
