Elizabeth's messages about the older books on step 1 got me to look at the step 1 page this evening to see what I could do to help out. Looking at the titles has got me wondering about something. Many of these books are either textbooks, essays, or other heavy nonfiction titles. I think most of us avoid working on books like this. I'm trying to find a solution to this problem. Do you think it might work to give validaters some sort of double credit for working on books that are over a year old? Or for textbooks since that's what many of these titles are? As I looked at the oldest books, my reaction was a groan because validating them would be tedious and boring to me. While some of our members do enjoy that type of material, I don't think I'm alone in my feelings. Would receiving double credit be an incentive for you personally? I'd like to know what you all think of my idea because I will suggest it to John if it has merrit. Does anyone have other ideas for encouraging people to process our more scholarly titles?
