Monica, I couldn't even find M.C. Beaton on the list, either under authors or where we enter the name under title or author; I didn't know the specific name of any book. Where did you find them? I agree with you about books rated excellent; so many would really benefit from rescanning that I would hardly know where to begin. If anyone would like to rescan a Maeve Binchy book, please contact me and I will tell you which it is. It's one of her best, I think, but I don't want to do it since I have already read the book.

Viji and her project with books from India has been helping with expanding the collection too. As for the publisher quality books replacing ones already in the collection, I'd be thrilled to have mine replaced because I know that no matter how hard I try, there will still be mistakes. A few of you are very careful proofreaders, and we're blessed to have you. You're not in the majority though, so a lot of errors are still getting through in books that are given an excellent rating. I've been reading the Hamish MacBeth mysteries lately, ones that are rated excellent. Trust me, at least three of them have some serious errors going on, ones that the submitter or validater could and should have corrected. They're scannos like tumed for turned and Harnish for Hamish. So I'd love it if PQ books replaced them in the collection. Who wants to hear Harnish instead of Hamish throughout most of a book? He's the main character, for Pete's sake! -- Monica Willyard Visit my blog at http://www.scannersguild.com To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
