Oops!  Looks like I was a bit premature.  Well, the series is at the point 
where no one needs to scan any of them.  How's that?  I'll mention it to 
Gustavo when I see him next week.

  Actually, there?s one of the Robb books which needed replacing because it has 
some missing words.  Naked in Death is sitting in the admin queue if you?d like 
to drop Gustavo a hint to process it so that they will all truely be in 
Excellent shape.  I had planned to notify everyone when it is approved that the 
series is up to date and point them to the series listing on Jake?s website to 
make it easier for them to know in which order to read the books.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] OT: Nora Roberts' pen name

    Discovered a curious thing today.  I was chopping up a book at the office 
and one of the back pages had an ad for a Nora Roberts book.  It said "A 
Berkley Paperback Coming in July 1995. New York Times bestselling author Nora 
Roberts writing as D. J. MacGregor - Naked in Death. Eve Dallas is a New York 
police lieutenant blah blah blah"


    Anyone spot the discrepancy there?  I know Gerald will get it instantly.  
For those of you unfamiliar with Nora Roberts' In Death series, every one of 
them has the author's name listed as J. D. Robb, not D. J. MacGregor.  They 
must have put the ad in the book and then later changed her pen name from 
MacGregor to Robb.


    (By the way, Bookshare has the complete set of the In Death books.)
