----Actually, Mary, a long time ago the staff did say to leave all that stuff 
in. I?ve been doing it, but it?s 
extremely annoying and boring to have to waste time correcting the scan of 
those pages, and, of 
course, I?m sure the prices on the book offer are out of date. We were told 
that the ads for books by 
other authors might be of interest to the reader of the book.

I admit I don?t know the value of the reviews, but maybe it would help the 
person to decide if they really 
want to read the book. Of course, they?ve already downloaded it and I don?t 
suppose they can return it.  
Anyway, I for one would be very happy to learn that we no longer have to scan 
and validate those pages. 
From the books I?ve validated and not scanned, I think a lot of people don?t 
bother ? and don?t bother 
scanning the covers and flaps of hardbound books that have them, either, though 
I was originally told 
that that was highly desirable, if not mandatory. I?d like not to bother with 
that, either, especially since 
often they don?t scan well and have to be typed in.

BTW, do we still use the word "typing," since we?re not using typewriters? (Do 
you young folk even know 
what typewriters are? My husband mentioned typing in the course of a class 
discussion and his 
college students just stared at him blankly as if they didn?t know what he was 
talking about.
