No, my concern is that all that work is gone to waste. I'm glad you don't mind--you're more generous in thought and feeling than I. smile. One of the first PQ books replaced one that I had validated, and I was/am angry that that happened. I take great care with my validations--read word for word, and when finished do a final spell-check in case I missed anything (and usually do find something I missed) and a final page check to be sure the page numbers are correct (I've found that sometimes I got so involved in reading that I skipped putting in a page break that wasn't there originally, or mis-numbered). I don't like having my work dumped in favor of a PQ book which, as I understand, still has some problems for brf with extraneous junk and may or may no have other problems like missing page breaks--or has that been fixed, now. I don't see why both books can't be in the collection and the member can have a choice as to which he/she wants to read. Fortunately, I haven't seen any other books that I've validated be added by HarperCollins, and though I know the Princess Diary series probably will be, I did those willingly rather than wait because there was a time requirement. I do have the list and will check before validating. I In the meantime, Mary Anne and I, and, I gather, Allison and others, have been spending time adding short synopses to the PQ books that are being added. I think some of the recent additions are from Random House. I must remember to ask Carrie if there is a list of those so I don't spend time validating any of those.
