I agree that you have to look at more than the ranking number to make a
decision. When I use K1000 to check on a book, I look for single letters as
well as broken words. And of course a little spot checking.

The only way I know is to download it and do some spot checking. I suppose
you could do a ranked spelling and see what the percentage is, but that
could be misleading if there are a lot of proper names and special words, as
SF and Fantasy have. If a book is of poor quality, it won't take long to
find out just reading here and there around the book.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] BSO-ing
I'm going through my shelves preparing books to be donated to a local
library.  I don't want to donate a book just to find out that I should have
bso-ed it.  We all know that some books were called excellent when they
aren't by current standards.  Is there a quick way to figure out if a book
needs bso-ing.
