Hey Vick and Bud,

Just wanted to make sure that you guys know, I wouldn't automatically say that you shouldn't rescan a book that's already in the collection. For an example, I downloaded a book that I wanted to read on bookshare and its quality was very low, many characters missing etc. Its still warranted a good quality rating so that was fine. Not wanting to deal with this, I got the book from the library and scanned it and it was so much easier on the ears to listen to it. So when I get a chance or teh validation pool goes down (in my next life time :)) I'll upload that book to replace the older copy. So feel free to scan books already on there if you can edit them or make them better.

All the best.

Honestly Bud, I could only wish all the books in the pool are as good as
your scan so please don't be too hard on yourself. Smile!

At least the book was a very good read, wasn't it?

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.
