Hi Mike, True, the backlog continues, but what else is new? Tell your friends who are scanning and frustrated that if they'd like to know the status of their books, they are more than welcome to send me an email any time and I'll get back to them with the status of their books.

If there were enough hours in the day and people to do the administrative approving, I'd bet that the books in the queue would get us to that next plateau. We likely also may have lost a few new scanners due to the slow processing time. At least one individual, who I cajoled to submit their scanned books, has complained to me about the untimeliness of approvals and their lack of ability to know where their books stood. The seasoned veterans such as ourselves understand these delays; the newbies likely don't.
