And while we're at it, let's show how many books in this list are in the 
Bookshare collection.  Once again, this list is from the ALA 
(http://www.ala.org).  Out of the 100 books listed here, Bookshare has 46 in 
excellent condition, 14 in good condition, none in fair condition, and the 
remaining 40 are not in the collection.  So we have 60% of this list!  I'd love 
for all of them to be in the collection! (Well, some will never be in, like 
Where's Waldo, which has no text to speak of.)

Thanks to Maithe for posting the original list, Carrie
