    Hi Carrie,

Great, but we could really use some help validating some of your submissions 
that linger on the download list. Since you have the print books it might be 
especially helpful if you could process some of the harder non fiction ones. 
Unfortunately just running the book through the highspeed scanner doesn't 
produce a book that is at the high end of excellent. While it's true that your 
books don't have binding issues, it's still often times necessary to read 
through the entire book if you really want a finished product that is truly 
excellent quality.

It's also unfortunate that so many of your submissions lately people don't seem 
to be interested in. I have noted that your submissions are usually grabbed 
right away if people are interested in the books, but otherwise they are 
grabbed, released quickly, let expire, or are never downloaded.

For instance currently there are 53 books submitted by you on the download 
page, 46 of which have never been downloaded, that's about 87%, and 53/385 
total books is about 14% of the download list. Me thinks we need to get some of 
them processed before we make step 1 grow even more with bulk submissions.

Below I've compiled a list of the books on step 1 done by Carrie so that you 
can see if there are any that tickle your fancy.

Thanks as always for all your volunteering Carrie!
