That's what I thought I'd have to do. ----- Original Message ----- From: Evan Reese To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, February 21, 2011 11:51 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: BSO-ing 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.

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. Thanks.
