Hello. I am Maria Georgakarakou and I am new to our list as you can see. I have been a Bookshare member for a couple of years but I just started scanning. So I have a lot of stupid questions. Maybe one of you can answer some of them.

I scanned three books. One was on a txt file and I haven't received any note of rejection. Do we ever know if a book we scanned was rejected? Mr. Turner did tell me as soon as I sent it that as a text file it had no page markers. However I later saw the title among those waiting for aproval. Must i wait for a note or should I go ahead and scan the thing again and OCR it as an RTF? The title in question is Smyrna 1922.

The other two books I scanned are RTF files and as I had more hopes as to their survival, I validated them myself. However, I have not heard about them in over a month. Does that mean they are dead? One is "The Viewer as Poet" and the other is "Single Mothers by Choice."

I don't want to scan anything else before I am sure I am doing this right and the books will not be rejected. But I am new to this and I guess I am still learning...

I am using ABBYY fine reader as an OCR program and I am very happy with it because it can read multiple languages in the same text and has no problem even with Latin.

Thank you all very much for reading those questions.

It is a pleasure being a Bookshare member and I always try to validate books about music as music is my field.

All the best,

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Anyone Interested IN Scanning...?

Hello, all. Would any of you be interested in scanning Slow Burn by Brenda Jackson and or Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night by Kresley Cole? The synopses are at the end of this message. If you are willing to scan them and can't get them from your library, I can by them and send them to you. If I do that, you're free to keep them or share them with someone else once you scan them. All I ask is that you keep the book until it's approved by Bookshare.
I, of course, am willing to validate them.


Slow Burn (Madaris Family Series) by Brenda Jackson

Everything in accountant Skye Barclay's life is fitting smoothly into place until she makes the startling discovery that she was adopted. Not only does she learn that her birth mother has died, but now Skye finds out that she has a biological brother: Vincent. Skye wants to track him down, and her parents, as well as her fiance, Wayne refuse to support or accept her decision. And Wayne takes it a step further and abruptly ends their engagement.

Skye's search for Vincent leads her to his adoptive parents, Dr. Justin and Lorren Madaris, and, lo and behold, Slade Madaris-Vincent's tall, dark, and sexy cousin. Slade is by far the most compelling man Skye has ever met, but she isn't ready to get involved so soon after Wayne's rejection. not even when Slade offers her a job so she can stay in town and get to know her brother better.

Slade is a shrewd businessman, but hiring Skye is one of the riskiest moves he's ever made. Soon their mutual attraction explodes into a steamy summer affair. When Wayne shows up in town, determined to win Skye back, Slade sets out to prove that he and Skye are meant to be together. Because a Madaris man never walks away from a challenge-especially when true love is on the line.

Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night (Immortals After Dark Series number 3) by
Kresley Cole
This one sounds fun and silly but I read the second book in the series and I
thoroughly enjoyed it.

Her breathless kiss haunts him...

Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed -- until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive.

His slow, hot touch is irresistible...

Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. It's rumored that no one can tempt Bowen's hardened heart, but soon passion burns between them. Though a future together is impossible, she fears he has no intention of letting her go.

No deed is too wicked for her seduction...

If they defeat the evil that surrounds them, can Mari deny Bowen when he demands her body and soul -- or will she risk everything for her fierce protector?
