Hi Megan,
    I think I can help you figure out how to check for the number of hard
page breaks in a book when editing with Microsoft Word.  
    In Word, a page break is denoted when using find and replace by ^m.  So,
If you place that character string in both the find and replace boxes and
take note of the number of replacements made when you execute the
replacement, you'll know how many pages are in a book.  What the
instructions that amber posted are telling you to do is to replace a page
break with a page break and note the number of replacements.  What you're
doing is sort of tricking Word into counting pages for you.  
    If you want to eliminate soft page breaks, you can increase the paper
size in the page setup dialogue.  If you make your paper size something
really long, 22 inches, for instance, then Word is tricked again into not
inserting soft page breaks and confusing you with them.
    I realize I haven't described keystrokes for achieving these things.  If
you want me to do that, I will.  Just hoping that an explanation of what
you're trying to achieve might spark the light for you!
Keep asking if you still have questions.

Hmm. Well, I don't exactly understand how I'd figure out how many hard page
breaks there are, but I'm glad to know they'd accept it. It seemed like they
were getting so picky with everything that they wouldn't. But hey, if
they're okay with it, can you just resubmit it as is and put hold for Megan
in the title? That way I can finish reading it and will mark it for
approval. I'm so confused about the whole page number thing I wasn't sure
what to do. Sorry and thanks for letting me know what they said.

Dear Amber
Thank you for your efforts to prepare a book for Bookshare. We are
contacting you because your submission, Deep Drive: A Long Journey to
Finding the Champion
Within by Rob Bradford, Mike Lowell has been marked for more editing before
publication on Bookshare.org.
We invite you to contact
if you need more information regarding this submission. We appreciate the
time you spend contributing to Bookshare.org, and look forward to continuing
build the collection together.
Below are some of the specific reasons for the request for further editing
of this submission:
To the rejecter: I am returning this book to the checkout queue since there
are 274 hard page breaks in it, which is just fine. In fact, I'd approve the
book as is. The reason you see over 400 page breaks is because your editor
is counting soft page breaks as well as hard. Please ignore the soft page
The only reason they are present is to tell you that if you were to print
the book on a printer, that's where the next page would start. If you want
figure out how many hard page breaks there are, please do a global replace
of page break to page break (which is ^m in MS Word) and look at that
Thank you,
The Bookshare Team
