Hi Cindy, I'm the one who scans, OCRs, validates and submits the New York Times books. I've mentioned to Gustavo and Janice that there are a lot of NY Times books with excellent ratings in the collection, but they say please scan and validate these books anyway. Okay, will do. I'm trying to concentrate on NY Times books that are not in the collection or are rated good in the collection for future months though. I try hard to make the NY Times book perfect when I validate them...

Carrie, when you or other volunteers in the office scan the books, are they proofread too? I know you personally do in some case, but I got the impression that you don't always, and I don't know about the others. Bud, maybe you could download the NY Times book and compare it with the one you pre-validated before submitting. Cindy --- Silvara wrote: > Hi Bud: > > I just looked up S is for Silence.
