I don't understand why they don't. They're not volunteers, right? As far as I know, they get paid for their time and, if that's true, they should be held accountable for their work. I know that's harsh but I think it's also fair.

I've mentioned here before that there was evidence to show that they didn't, and this just adds to it. Evan ----- Original Message ----- From: solsticesinger To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, January 01, 2010 3:58 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Comments on Impulse by Ellen Hopkins 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.
