I thought at one point recently I had seensomething about if it was so
garbagy that it was impossible to use we could remove it! Could we
please get a definitive answer from someone on the staff on this one?

----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course, I'm sure the prices on the book offer are out of date.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.
