Hi gang,

I don't often get a rejection slip on a book but when I do I always wonder why. Wouldn't it be a good idea if the person who rejects a book could contact the person who submitted it and either tell them why they rejected it or try to work with them if it can be saved or rescanned.
What are you other guys thoughts on the subject? \

Books without Barriers

Bookshare.org is an online community that enables people in the United States with visual or other print disabilities to legally share scanned books.

Where do the digital books come from?
The Bookshare.org collection is built and shaped primarily by its community of members and supporters. By scanning a book to submit to the collection, a Bookshare.org member can provide all other members access to that book.

Who can access the books?
Copyrighted digital books are available only to U.S. residents who have a disability that affects print reading and have a current subscription. Organizations such as schools can sponsor access for their students through a School or Group Account.

A limited number of books are available to non-U.S. residents because of publisher permission. Visit this link on our website to find out more:

Why is Bookshare.org legal?
In general, it would be illegal to share or distribute copyrighted books. However, Bookshare.org takes advantage of a special exemption in U.S. copyright law that permits the reproduction of publications into specialized formats for the disabled. This project is possible under the law in the United States, as long as the copyrighted digital books are only available to people in the U.S. with bona fide disabilities and the nonprofits and schools that serve them. For more information, please visit our website at

Who is providing Bookshare.org?
Bookshare.org is a project of the Benetech Initiative, a nonprofit organization. The Benetech team originally developed the Arkenstone reading systems, and is now using the power of technology to introduce new projects such as Bookshare.org - www.benetech.org.
