When the publishers started submitting their copies ones that the volunteers had done were deleted from the collection, even though they were perfect (at least I know mine was). I'm not sure how perfect rtthe PQ copies were then. Have any of you downloaded one of each and compared them? Maybe it's now a bad thing to have more than one copie of a title in the collection. YOU can read whichever is better. Except that apparently part of the del with the publishers, at leasst some of them, was thatr the bopy that was not theirs would be deleted from the collection. My proofread copy of Delinsky's The Passions of Chelsea Kane is still in the collection, but my proofread copy of A Womanm Betrayed has been replaced by a PQ copy. Too bad they aren't the same titles so someone could see ow the PQ copy compares. Unfortunately, I can't remember what other of my work might have been replaced, except probably some of the Princess Diaries. We had to do those becuse the PQ copies weren't going to be available in time. I would like to know from some of you if the PQ editions are indeed perfect.. I checked a few other books I remember proofreading but there aren't any PQ versions of them in the collection (except there is a PQ version of The Princess Diaries Diaries (vol. 1)I know it's a good thing for bookshare to have books from the publishers but when one has worked carefully on a book, especially if it was a long one or needed a lot of work , one hates to see one's work be thrown out. smile Cindy Wish List (i.e., books wanted added to the collection) and books-being-scanned list available at sites below Wish List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Bookshare+Wish+List Books Being Scanned List: https://wiki.benetech.org/display/BSO/Books+Being+Scanned+List --- On Mon, 7/20/09, Lynn I <lynnskyi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: From: Lynn I <lynnskyi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: If You See Duplicates To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date: Monday, July 20, 2009, 7:21 AM That's a very good question. I'm finding more and more duplicate books in the collection. One is usually a publisher quality copy and the other is a copy submitted by a volunteer. Blessings.
