RE: bookshare.org

Hi John

I am living in South Africa.

Unfortunately no relaxing of copyright regulations here or anything similar
to bookshare.org!

Take care.

Renette

Hello Rynette,
Just curious, where are you from? I suppose the better question is where are
you residing?
Take care,
John

Hi All

I am not an American citizen and therefore am not allowed to join
bookshare.org as a member.

Although I can download very old books for free from bookshare.org, most of
these books are available in Braille or on tape anyway.

There however is another website where I for example can download books that
members have scanned in for personal use and put on this "unknown" website.

From my side I can "deposit" books that I have scanned in for myself, to the
website .

This has the advantage of saving ten people from scanning in the same book
and makes it possible for more people to "read" more or have access to more
books.

Hope there is somebody who can help.

Renette again
