OK, assuming the book is in RTF format when it's received...did you register 
to become a volunteer? Did you get the instructions for validating books? 
That would be a start and give you some things to look for. In those 
instructions, the bare minimum is listed, but many of us do more than that. 
If you don't have those instructions, I don't have them, but maybe someone 
has a copy they can send you. If you're taking a book from the Step One 
page, where you download books that need to be validated, you check for 
completion to make sure the book is complete with no missing pages. You 
check copyright info and make sure the book is not an e-book. There are some 
university materials that are submitted that throw people off because they 
look like e-books, but those are not to be rejected. <smile> You do a spell 
check and fix any errors you find, or, if you're so inclined, you can read 
the book completely through and correct errors as you come to them. Page 
breaks are a must. Bookshare will no longer accept books without page 
breaks, but usually, that's not something you have to worry about with an 
RTF file. I'm not sure if I've answered your question, but if not, 
definitely feel free to ask more. That's what this list is for and I'm sure 
someone will be glad to help. Take care.
