Hi Carrie,

Great to have you back!  I approved a book of doctor jokes you submitted
after you got back.

I cannot imagine why any member would give out your e-mail address or even
write to you on it unless they had permission.  However, the thoought I had
was I wondered if someone could sign up for these lists without being a
member or volunteer if they knew how..

First, I need to apologize for the garbage in the new Harry Potter book.  I
tried to clean it up, but Gustavo said that there were a lot of people
waiting for it, so I quick submitted it so he could approve it.  I'm
planning on making the copy pretty and re-submitting it this weekend, so
it'll be better looking.

Second, I got an email from someone in Argentina BEGGING me for a copy of
the book.  He swore he wouldn't print it or pass it on to anyone else.  Yeah
right!  He is clearly well-educated, uses excellent English, but has no
money for the book?  Give me a break.  Since only members can see my name as
the submitter, a member must have shown him accidentally (or intentionally?)
my name and email address.  No, I'm not sending him a response of any sort,
and I suggest that everyone else do the same if you get similar emails.  My
2 cents.  [BTW, Gustavo checked his name, and he's not a member.]

Third, hi to everyone.  Gustavo just put me back on the list today.
Anything happen while I was gone the past month?

  Sure, a whole bunch of people considered important to read HP6 on day one;
  many others don't.
  Secondly, even if someone viewed it essential first day reading, they had
  to know that Bookshare had it on day one.
  As most subscribers are cassual rather than inveterate users, they were
  (and probably still are not) aware of the availability.
  I believe that either Janice or Gustavo last week mentioed that BookShare
  has around 3,000 active user accounts;
  given that as a baseline, 260 in a little over a day represents nearly 10%
  which is an amazing number to retrieve anything.
