Allison, I commend you and wish you luck. Thanks, too, for speaking up.I also agree with you that page numbers are very tedious and who knows whether any reader will ever know of the work you did.
Frankly, to the rest of the group, until page numbers are a "must" from bookshare, I'm going to use my own judgement. If the book is a manual, or a collection, I'm going to put in the page numbers.
However, if it's the latest thriller or science fiction fantasy that someone is likely to read for pleasure, if it doesn't have page numbers I'm not going to go through 200 or more pages inserting text that wasn't there. If there are some page numbers then I'll complete the task. I'm not trying to be hard-headed, just realistic.
I have a question, what if the page numbers are on the bottom of the page, is that permissible?

Okay okay okay, I'm putting in the page numbers already! By hand! Even though ittakes forever and is one of the most tedious and mind-numbingly boringthings I've ever done. You all made me feel so guilty for not writing them inthat I finally broke down and started doing it. Now this will be the most beautiful darn book ever and you can all worship it for the masterpiece itis because I've hand-written every little numeral. Everyone can rest easier now, and hopefully putan end to this incredibly long list thread. <smile>.
