Rather than grumpy, the email makes good sense. I notice there are books duplicated on bookshare now where a set is submitted along with the original books in that set existing as separate books. Such duplication seems wasteful of both submitter's time and validator's time.

Hi, Cindy. I'm a little concerned because some people are submitting wish list requests for books already on Bookshare. I know you're just forwarding, and I'm not blaming you. The request itself doesn't make sense though. Why would we buy the three-pack when all three books are on Bookshare? Two of them, This Present Darkness and Piercing The Darkness, have been on Bookshare for several years and are in excellent shape. Prophet has just been added to the collection and is on the new books page. Even if it wasn't, why buy a 3-pack of books just to get at Prophet? I wouldn't want to see a volunteer waste money and time working on books in the system unless they need a rescan. This email probably sounds a little grumpy. I'm more frustrated than annoyed though. -- Monica Willyard Visit my blog at http://www.scannersguild.com To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
