Hi Vivian,

Yes, try an easier BTC.

It is best to mark your first book as a "Hold for" in order to get feedback. I 
will track yours down.

Oops, was I supposed to do anything special? As a new volunteer, I just 
submitted 2 books for proofreading:

Good Fortune: My Journey To Gold Mountain by Wong, Li Keng (still in "ready for 
checkout" queue)
Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So: A Memoir by Vonnegut, 
Mark being edited by Tomoko Miles

I did try to pick one book for proofreading Btc-1 Sudden Rides Again  but had 
to return that. My understanding was the btc-1 was for 1st time proofreader. 
That was not a good book for a 1st time proofreader -- to many contractions -- 
"old west lingo." I tried looking for a hard copy of the book, and couldn't 
find one in our libraries or used book store, so I'm sorry -- I returned that.

I will attempt to choose another book for proofreading soon.

But please let me know the procedure.

I see I have thoroughly confused everyone. As a new proofreader, I had to 
change the titles to "Hold for Rick..." I was asking if I had to continue doing 
that (using Carrie's or someone else's name); or just upload the book without 
changing the title to the above way.

Hope that's clearer.     Tim

Hi Tim,

If you checked out the book from the checkout page, and proofread it, then you 
need not put any hold on it at all.  You'll go to the page marked "my checked 
out books" and choose the link that  is for uploading your book.

If you are submitting a book that you have scanned, there is no need to put a 
hold on it either unless someone has asked to proofread it for you.  Even if 
you scan a book and do all of the proofreading steps before uploading the book, 
it still needs to be taken care of by a proofreader before being approved to 
the collection.

I hope all of that wasn't too confusing and answered your question!

Hi Everyone,

I have a proofed book ready to check in. Should I put a hold on it for Carrie, 
someone else, or no one at all?
