I also sent Kerry some "doosies" for her as I couldn't conquerethem and I
hoped, smile that Kerri would take them on.
Actually the Better IEP book is mine and I am so glad that she isattacking
it along with the White House book.
I usually prevalidate my scans and usually submit things peoplehave
expressed an interest in in the past or something that is lackingon the
sight. Am working on animal and craft books right now.
And Boating and Sailing as this is an interest of mine.

I know that Jake and others have mentioned that they would liketo see the
Step 1 page cleared out. It was suggested that some of the bookssubmitted
weren't popular, because of the time they lingered on the Step 1page, and
it was implied that because of this, despite numerous suchsubmissions, the
books weren't all that useful.
First of all, I would prefer never to see the Step 1 page clearedout. To
me, this would suggest that we're not submitting enough books tokeep the
validators busy. I hope that Bookshare never experiences thisfate, as the
majority of the books I now read come from Bookshare. NLS, RFBand other
such sources are distant seconds. Keep submitting books, andhopefully
we'll develop a rhythm, a steady flow that always has booksrolling off the
step 1 page, while others roll on. There are some instances whencompleting
everything on your plate is good, but I'm not convinced that thisis such an
I don't know where Carrie gets all of her books, but at least afew of them
have come from me. They're very specific, books for businessanalysts, and
it's likely that very few people would want to read them. I snagthem when
they come up, and often hold on to them for quite some time,until I have
time to make sure they're in really good shape. If other usersthen submit
very special interest books, and expect others to validate theminstead of
realizing that since they're of such narrow interest they'll haveto do it
themselves, then it's possible that many books Carrie scans wouldlinger on
the Step 1 page. I don't know how many books this applies to, soplease
understand I'm not quoting a statistic, just pointing out apossible
And sometimes books linger for other reasons. I have a LaurellK. Hamilton,
Anita Blake book, sitting on my hard drive. It will probablyonly take a
few hours to validate, as the scan is excellent, but I've notbeen in a
rush. Why? Because I approved Guilty Pleasures, the first bookin that
series, positively ages ago, and it's still in the admin queue.Perhaps
it's my own bias, but I figure, why rush it? People will want toread the
books in order, so I'll do this one once the first book goes up.
As to clearing out step 1, a suggestion, then, would be tooccasionally
validate books you're not interested in. I've validated awestern romance,
a few textbooks, and some Hooked On Phonics Books, none of whichare of any
interest to me. And trust me, the western romance is at the verybottom of
the heap of things I want to read.
And if the books linger, so be it. After all, maybe one daysomeone will be
looking for a book, and discover it hiding on the Step 1 page.
Only my two cents. Everyone's Bookshare experience, andphilosophy, will
