Hi Gwen, I just wanted to compliment your typing. I have friends who have a twelve-year-old daughter and she, too, takes great pride in her typing. Also, thank you for giving Mayrie books to submit to bookshare.org! Good luck with all of your life.

And some questions, please. Hi Gwen, Many more people will be able to validate the books if they are submitted in rtf. Removeing headers but leaving page numbers with global replace is one of the most helpful things you can do.
