Everyone I've heard of having the upload problem has had highspeed Internet of 
some type.  I think only because dialup users don't even try to deal with huge 
books.  One of those people even had a business's connection with unusually 
fast upload speeds, so I am absolutely sure that the problem is a bookshare 
one.  Too bad they are in denile about it.  The lack of acknowledgement has 
really discouraged people.  I hope zipping helps in this case.  People at 
bookshare always suggest sending the file as an attachment, but most people's 
E-mail provider won't allow the sending of big enough attachments to send any 
book large enough to be a problem. They are also always saying that they 
experience no trouble uploading the book to the system, so the problem must be 
on the user's end, but of course that is silly since they are pretty much right 
there and wouldn't be uploading to the system in the same way as someone 
accessing bookshare over the Internet.

BTW, the percentages blabbed by JAWS come from the explorer progress bar, which 
is not entirely connected with reality in the case of uploading and page 
loading progresss.  It is only accurate when you are looking at a file download 
dialog.  This is all to say that you really don't know at what point the upload 
fails, but since it never ends you do know that it does fail, so the point of 
failure doesn't really matter to the sufferer.
