[bookshare-discuss] Re: More books than I know what to do with!

the flaws to me are.

1. warped tapes
2. Tapes where one was recorded over the other so you get ghosting in the 
background.
3. The wrong tape.
4. The missing tape.
5. The missing book, side, or cassette

That is what I consider flawed, smile.

Still fantastic readers but these minor flaws are really aggrevating me 
right now and I do know how to fix them.

But it still frustrates me to no end.

This is honestly a matter of opinion.
I prefer a human reader to a computer any day, and cannot understand why
some feel the tape structure is flawed.

I can sit by the ocean and read in comfort and with the kind of vocal
seasoning only a human ca produce.
I think the suggestion that a book produced today could likewise be
available today.
Still my point is that each individual has personal tastes.  Both services
have their place, and I trust both will remain for those who want to
savor them.
