I am taking a break from validating before I get totally burned out..Often half of the books on the reject list are mine. Perhaps this is part of the reason some of the books on the reject list need a second opinion from a validator who is not me before they will really leave step 1.
I did spend time on all the rejects, and there were many of them. Unfortunately, many were from one or two people. I know it is difficult for staff to send one person ten reject notices.
If more people were willing to clean out books from step 1 by rejecting ones validators simply do not have enough hours in the day to fix up perhaps staff would be more willing to reject books. I will be back validating in a couple of weeks when I feel less burned out. I am staying on the volunteer list just taking a break from volunteering.
