HI Monica, Yes, definitely count me in. I was going to start scanning books from the wish list also. I have said I would scan two and am waiting for them from the library. I am also proof reading The Silmarillion which was a poor scan on book share and will submit it as a bso. IF someone wants to give me some titles I will scan them. I know it is a big, big stretch but it would be nice to see 10,000 new books. Even if we can do 7500 that would be a 50 percent increase. I am also in the process of going through 27 books I have here that I haven't submitted yet. Just making sure they are clean. I am finding some of these I did with Kurzweil 9 and 11 is cleaning them up very nicely:) Happy New years and the best in 2007! Can you believe it! IN numerology this is the earth year 9. This means that all that has happened in the last 8 years will come to a conclusion and in 2008 we will start a new 9 year cycle. I have a feeling this new cycle will bring some amazing changes by 2016 we will be living in a new world. Katie Hill You can learn a lot if you are humble enough to listen.

Hi everyone. I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. I would like to propose a small project for those of us who are able to scan books. Would each of you join me in taking a little time in January to do a fresh scan of a book you've tried to read on Bookshare that has turned out to be in rough condition? If we each just did one rescan, we could make a nice dent in the number of poorly scanned books on the site. For our validaters, would you be willing to make a little time to process some BSO versions of books? Just a little coordinated effort on our part can mean that future readers will get readable versions of books we can't read clearly right now. For my part, I'm rescanning 2 books I submitted last year before I knew how to optimize my OCR programs to get clear scans. I'm going to do fresh scans of The DNA Of Relationships by Gary Smalley and Growing Through Divorce by Jim Smoke. Both books are in rough shape.
