Hi Debby,

I do the first thing that you suggest, contact the scanner of the book to
ask if I might proofread, either here on this list, or privately.  Hjust
what I do.

Hi Cindy!

If "The Diplomat's Wife" is held for Deborah H, that's fine.  I just offered
on the list to proofread the book, and I thought that was enough, not
knowing the procedure or where to begin finding out how to put a hold on a
book..

So, do I understand this correctly that, if a person posts to the list and
says he or she is scanning a book and is in need of a proofreader, do I
e-mail the scanist and say I want him or her to put a hold on the book for
me, or do I contact the volunteer coordinator from the web site?  I am still
a little unsure of the proper procedure.
