Hi guys,
    Well I, my Kurzweil 1000 and scanner have been extremely busy and 
productive since I returned home last Thursday night.

    Since coming home I have proofed approximately 1,130 pages. The following 
titles have been submitted and await you on Step 1.

HB Casefiles:
#27 Nowhere to Run
#28 Countdown to Terror
#30 The Deadliest Dare
#31 Without a Trace

HB Mystery Stories:
#15 The Sinister Signpost

Also already submitted but either already on the site or currently in process:
HB Casefiles #26 Trouble in the Pipeline
A Crime for Christmas - A Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys SuperMystery

I've also got Mystery at Devil's Paw (Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #38) the 
original edition scanned and proofread (since Thanksgiving) I just forgot to 
upload it, so look for it in the next day or two as well.

Somebody, I think Shelley, was discussing various projects they were working 
on. A general goal of mine is to keep adding books from series that came out of 
the Stratemeyer Syndicate from the early 1900s. These books obviously include 
the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and Tom Swift. There are others but I think these 
are a pretty good start don't you?...well there are 500+ books that spawn from 
these three series alone.

Additionally I've scanned and would like to scan more Boxcar Children books. 
There's now a sizeable number of them on the site but it would be nice to fill 
in some of the gaps. I'd also like to scan some Inspector West novels that were 
written by John Cresey, but I've got to get good ol' mom or dad to take me to 
the library to pick some up.

Well anyways all, I'm on break, I get my grades tomorrow and I'm inside away 
from the cold! Definitely don't expect the scanner in me to keep up this 
rate...I think after this semester I was having scanner withdrawals, thus the 
approx 200 pages a day.

Good will to all and happy holidays!
