What?? They're missing?  I put all 30 chapter titles on the appropriate pages 
by hand on Saturday morning, since the OCR program ignored them. I can't 
believe they're missing.  Maybe it's that no-blank-line-at-the-top-of-the-page 
problem. Anyway, in my new version, there are blank lines at the top of each 
page including those pages with chapter titles, and there are page numbers at 
the bottom of each page, preceded by a blank line.  I'll let you know when I 
resubmit the book, and if you would be so kind as to download it again, please 
let me know if the chapter titles are in the better improved version of 
HPATHBP.  If not, I will have a word with Gustavo and the 2 of us will put a 
version with chapter titles on the db.  Very frustrating!

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?

Those of you who are surprised at the "260" number are forgetting
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.
