Hi Ann. Good observation.I think proof reading for formatting errors etc. is a great idea. Probably one would not need to format for spelling errors as any errors are the fault of the publisher/author, which we are supposed to leave in anyway.
Thanks. Bob"We know the future will outlast all of us, but I believe that all of us will live on in the future we make,"

Hi all,As reported earlier, the Writers' Market is lacking page breaks. Apparently there are thirty-four chapters and an unknown number of pages, probably something like 600. However the Book Information page lists 34 as the number of pages. This is rediculous! I know that this is not an isolated issue. I've encountered a couple of other PQ books that have this same problem. I recommend that when PQ books are queued for the collection, *somebody* not a machine, but some human person, actually checks the number of pages in the book. Just because they're PQ does not mean that they are error free. They may be scan perfect in the text, but if the page numbering is that far off, then they are not acceptable for Bookshare!Maybe the PQ books need to be proofed just like the volunteer scans?
