I've seen publisher quality books with no page numbers or page breaks, and have 
wondered the very same thing. I know for a fact that a volunteer submission 
would be rejected if it lacked page breaks. So, like you, I am curious to know 
why publisher quality submissions, or submissions by bookshare staff, are not 
held to the same standards.

  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Question about a book

  Hi All,

  I am reading The Simple Truth by David Baldacci.  The copy I am reading is 
publlisher quality and the submitter is listed as bookshare staff.  (There is 
another copy submitted in 2002).  Well, this copy has no page breaks or page 
numbers in the BRF file.  The quality of the text is really good.  

  Now what I am wondering is this:  If one of us submitted a book with no page 
breaks (horror of horrors) and no page numbers, the book woould be rejected.  
So why is it permissible for bookshare staff to submit books without page 
numbers/breaks?  I must say that the quality of the book as far as being free 
of scannos, is very excellent.

  I hope I'm not stirring up a hornet's nest.  (smile)  

  Sue S., who has been there, done that.  (smile)
