That definitely calls for an exception to the strip the headers policy."Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, & the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people."

I proofed Identical by Ellen Hopkins. If all her books are set up like that one, and it appears from your comments that they may be, they'll have to be proofed carefully by a sighted person. In Identical, each narrator's story was on a different page, the page of one following the page of the other, with sentences by one person finished on he next page by the other. The only indicatin of a change was the page heading, and the tone of the story. Sometimes several pages continued by one narrator before the next one picked up. I haven't read any of her other books, and maybe the set-up was only because this book was about identical twins. I found the book interesting, and provocative, and well worth being in the collection. I'd be happy to proof any of her books, but at the moment I have 5 to work on.CindyWish List (i.e., books wanted added to the collection) and books-being-scanned list available at sites below https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Books+Being+Scanned+List--- On Fri, 1/1/10, solsticesinger <solsticesinger@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:From: solsticesinger <solsticesinger@xxxxxxxxx> Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Comments on Impulse by Ellen Hopkins To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Friday, January 1, 2010, 12:58 PM I just finished reading Impulse by Ellen Hopkins, which was added to the collection by an outsourcing group in Africa. This is one of the worst outsourced scans I've seen. In fact, I wonder if anyone bothered to proof it at all. The book switched point of view often, and there was no indication of this in the scan. Therefore, it was impossible to know which character was speaking at any given time. In fact, due to the lack of headers, it was impossible to determine how many narrators even existed. I saw several very common scanning errors that could have been fixed, if only the book had been read through. "hail" for "hall" is an example. I really looked forward to reading this book, but was sorely disappointed by the scan. It really does need to be redone, IMO.To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
