Hi Kim,

Thanks so much for your comments! I know about the volunteer newsletter problem 
and I want to fix this too. We are actually talking about starting the 
newsletter up again. Regardless, that old link shouldn't be there. I'm not sure 
about the slow loading times, but I will see what I can find out about what is 
being done to fix this. It's really frustrating, I agree!

Hopefully we'll be able to straighten out these issues!

Hi, what I've noticed on the Volunteer section of the Bookshare web site: 1. 
The volunteer newsletter is the one dated in January when the site went live 
and it hasn't been changed; 2. I don't know if the engineering geniuses have 
solved the problem of loading pages for the checkout queue. They take a long 
time to load and if I wished to go to another page for checking out a book to 
proofread, the computer didn't seem to be able to handle it very well; 3. If I 
release or reject a book, I'd feel better about my decision if there was a 
means for me to explain my decision for the folks in charge of approving books. 
4. I haven't responded to any blogs on the Bookshare site because I haven't 
figured out how to do it. Regards, Kim Friedman.
