Hi Folks,
   I think that this is a wonderful idea.  Please count me in!  And thank you 
Lissi for thinking of this tribute to Mayrie.

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,
