Hi Chela,

Attached is the list. I have not gone through it systematically yet but you will find some comments about quality issues as well as missing books. For example:

Quality:
48 The Handmaidís Tale - Margaret Atwood
49 Lord of the Flies - William Golding
Missing:
90 The Faraway Tree Collection - Enid Blyton
93 The Wasp Factory - Iain Banks

What titles are left to fill in the gaps, perhaps I could help find them?
Now? Or if someone beat me to it already then have at it!

Thanks, Bob. I will see what can be done to fill the gaps in books on the
list.

How about if I take Thanksgiving off in exchange for overworking Bookshare
volunteers on weekends?

At long last, here's the final list.

In the bottom 2/3 of the list there were only two books that bookshare
didn't seem to have.
90 The Faraway Tree Collection - Enid Blyton and 93 The Wasp Factory -
Iain Banks

Thanks to Mayrie and Jamie for working on this task with me.

Scott, why don't you take weekends off, like normal folks? Just kidding,
thanks for a fun challenge.

Thanks,

Bob (off to bed)

Hi Bob,

But slow and steady wins the race.  Remember?  I'll attach what Jamie and
I have in case anyone is just champing at the bit to start downloading!

I've found two books out of fifteen books so far.

I guess I'm the slow one in the group. Probably won't finish my third of
the list until this evening. When I'm done, I'll attach it and send it to
the list.

Hi Everyone!

So far, with us having gotten through 66 of the books only one is not in
the Bookshare collection, and it's "The Complete Works of Shakespeare", so
I'll bet we already have all of them!  I'll attach the entire list once I
hear from Bob and you all can download to your heart's content.

I'm doing pretty well, have read quite a few more of these than the six
that they say most people have read!

Oh good, I was just up to #40, Winnie the Pooh, so I will stop.

I'll attach what I have.
