And may I say thank you to whoever buys books for Bookshare. I just looked through that list of upcoming books and found a whole handful of books by Leon Trotsky, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. I really did not think I would be listened to that well. This is one of those reasons that I wonder if volunteers are becoming obsolete. It appears that it is a lot more quick to get a book or a certain kind of book in the collection by just asking for it than by scanning it oneself. At least I think it would have taken me years to do those myself and even if I had then how long would I have had to wait for a proofreader? "Can a nation be free if it oppresses other nations? It cannot."
