Two books submitted.

OCR with a Smile
An Operator's Guide To Optical Character Recognition

By Fred Ross

This is the recommended book on OCR.  I did find it fascinating, though the 
book is more focused on OCR for businesses and not for our intentions. 
Books gets one page, and what he has to say about books isn't very 
comforting.  I also see, why Kurzweil and Open book don't incorporate 
particular features.  The book was very visual "Look at the image" and the 
like, but still gives good ideas on maintenance, the scanning and OCR 
process and some tips on how to fix certain errors.

This is a kids book about Dasher a Greyhound.

Both of these are under the .rtf section of the website. and all scannos and 
the like I could figure out got fixed.

The book is about Dasher's fears, mistakes, and triumphs as she learns the 
joy of being in a loving home.

The abrupt transition from the race track to her new home confuses Dasher.
