  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Remembering Mayrie in Bookshare fashion Tuesday 
evening Dec 4th

  Dear Booksharian Friends,

  I’d like to propose a unified, poetic  gesture I truly believe would have 
touched Mayrie deeply. It honors her love of books. Let’s set aside an hour 
Tomorrow evening, December 4th, beginning at ten o’clock Eastern, nine Central, 
eight Mountain and seven Pacific time to stage a group Mayrie ReNae memorial 
reading in place of a service, wake, or other such remembrance. During that 
time we could read, preferably a book from Bookshare and even better, one that 
Mayrie helped bring to the collection or continue a volunteer proofreading or 
scanning project. at the following link:


  you’ll find a list of 1170 books Mayrie worked on.

  Browse that list, or download and start any book that draws you. Or, spend 
that time scanning or proofreading. If you want to in    corporate a social 
element, Post a note about your observance of this time to the Bookshare 
discuss list at bookshare-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx. This will be our shout out to 
each other, to Mayrie and to the cosmos, “Together we  tip our books to you 
Mayrie, and the reading continues.

  Always with love,
