Monica, what I did whenI saw two books that I desperately wanted to read on the step1 page with Amber's name on them, was to email her and ask her if she planned on doing the books. She wrote back and said to take them because she was totally bogged down and did not have time. I think I'd write to whoever had the hold on the books and if there's not a timely response, my idea would be to go ahead and take the books. Now I believe that most of the holds for Lissi are because she either bought the books for Bookshare to scan and has a print copy of the same book to help her validate, or because she owns a copy of a book scanned by someone else and she always validates with a printed copy alongside her if she can. But still, it would seem to me that if the books are languishing on step1 and someone else wants to scan them, I can't see allowing the books to stay on step1.
