Hello, Bookshare Volunteers,

I am a new Bookshare member and volunteer and just wanted to introduce myself.

I joined Bookshare via a somewhat unusual path.  For Christmas last year, I 
gave my husband a bookshare membership because he was always running out of 
books from NLS.  I figured that as a member of bookshare, he would never run 
out of reading material.  However, not only has he found plenty of books to 
read, but he became a volunteer and began validating books.  I watched this 
process with interest.

When I discovered all the books in the Bookshare collection on the Brontes, I 
realized that I had to join Bookshare in order to access these books as the 
Brontes are a love of mine.

Because of seeing the joy Mike has found through validating books, I submitted 
a book "The Elements of Prayer", signed up as a volunteer, and just got the 
word that Elements of Prayer has been added to the collection, and it is such a 
wonderful feeling.

So, I look forward to submitting books, validating a few, and reading a lot.  
So now you will see two Castners on the list, and my introduction is a 
roundabout way of explaining why.
