Hello everyone,

I have looked at what is required to validate a book. Am I right that what is necessary in the book are these things: all pages present, all copyright information present legible and complete? Am I missing things? I ask, because, if these are the primary things, I'd like to let you all know, and I guess you'd have to take my word for it, but I don't submit a book unless those things are done. Also, I don't submit anything without first editing it for spelling/scanning errors and fixing the unreadable parts, if there are any. And why, you ask, am I telling you this? Because, I thought perhaps folks might like a really easy validation once in a while. There's nothing like feeling like you've accomplished something. And if you have to fix messed up books regularly, it might be nice to see that there are actually people out here who do take real care with the books that we scan and submit.

Until now, I have been submitting my books in KES, but as it has been stated so clearly that RTF is preferred and is what the books get converted to later anyway, I will now convert them first. I hope this makes a difference for somebody.

I'm just curious, and can't seem to find the information anywhere, could someone tell me how much bookshare credit folks earn for what kinds of work?

Thanks for all of your help so far. I'd like to think I might not need much more, but I don't suffer from delusions, so I'm sure, and sorry, but you'll probably be hearing more questions from me. I'm not sure why, but it seems I don't always find the information that I'm looking for when I go looking. Probably I need to be more careful in my looking. Okay, enough.

        Thanks again.

Peace,
Mayrie
