Hi Vic,

Thanks so much for your reply. I was getting an inferiority complex about my work.I never take the time to see if a book is already in the list. I read books as my wife brings them home from the library and then just send them on to bookshare, so It's my own fault for not checking first. It's not that much more trouble to prepare it and send it on after I've read it so I don't mind. I guess I'll be positive after this and assume if it's rejected it's because it's already in the files, and not to my poor scanning and editing. I do some editing as I go so it will ghbe easier for the validators.
Thanks again.

Hi Bud. I was the one who validated your book. There was nothing wrong with
it and the scan was very good. The moment I started checking it, I just had
to read it in whole and could not leave it off since my interest got caught
in the story. I was into the book more than half way correcting some
scanning errors just here and there, when I think Peter wrote to this list
and said the book was already in the bookshare collection. Even then I just
had to check if the one already in the collection is of a poorer quality so
I could submit the one you scanned cause I never like rejecting. I
downloaded the one from bookshare, and As it was, the copy of the book
already in bookshare was already of a very good quality. I hope you

This also happened to me when I scanned a book last month. I put in so much
work into scanning a very long book that I like only to find out that there
is already a copy at bookshare and all my toils just turned to naught. From
then on, I always make sure I only scan books that are not yet in the
bookshare collection.
I hope this helps.

Hi gang,

I just had a message that a book I  submitted was not accepted.  It was the
avenger.  I would be curious if anybody here validated it and what the
problem might have been.  I still think they should tell the turndownee why
it was rejected but I know they say they can't do that so I accept that
with reservations.I won't try to investigate why but was just curious.

Oh well, back to my next book for submitting.My record on rejections has
been pretty good but I always wonder why when one does bite the dust.
