And Lelia, in case you don't know, don't be worried about the seven-day time limit. Books can be renewed as many times as is necessary. You'll get a reminder that your book is due in two days and you just go to the upload and hit renew and you have it for another 7 days. I mark the date on the calendar and renew the day before so I have as much time as possible. smile Cindy --- Lynn I <lynnskyi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi All, > > I just want to echo what Elizabeth has said.
