OH, oh Bob.
You're so bad.

I swear, I cannot read your messages while drinking soda because you're 
going to be the death of me.

That's it. I'm revoking your internet license.

Amy, I agree with the jist of your message.

However, it got me to thinking of ways bookshare could expand its services.

For example, in the areas of erotica and picture descriptions. If we got the 
right describers, with appropriately sultry voices to do the descriptions in 
mp3 format, we could post these on other sites that cost money (much money) 
to join, or put the descriptions on tapes to be played over the telephone 
for three or four dollars a minute (I'm not sure of the going rate since 
they cancelled my credit card).

But, we could have here the makings of a vast, if slightly illegal, service 
for both blind and sighted patrons.

Oh well, the resultant legal battles might cause the department of education 
to re-think their generous grant. But, wealth is wealth, isn't it?

Sorry for the flight into fantasy, just musing on an early Friday morning.

It's really not my fault, you know, Amy started this thread.

Bob (curmudgeon dreams)

   Why would someone assume Bookshare readers would not want to read 
romance/erotica [which are actually two distinct areas]. From what I have 
seen there does not seem to be any area of interest that some Booksharian is 
not willing to scan and/or validate and there certainly is no field that 
some Bookshare wants to read.  There should be no prudishness in choosing 
books for the collection other than those areas that are illegal, if any, 
for libraries or certainly for mail. The only one I can think of is 
Pedophilia in other than a psychological text.

    When you post the list, may I help out with some of the scanning? Happy

bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Well, I've had several requests to see the 
list, so I'll post it tomorrow. No guarantees about when I can get to them 
for processing though... [Most of the books look like they are the 
soft-core, romance-y books. If anyone is interested in basic erotica, check 
out Ellora's Cave publishers (www.ellorascave.com). If you're into kinky 
stuff, try the Greenery Press (www.greenerypress.com). We have books from 
both publishers already in the collection.] Carrie ----- Original

donation Carrie, I'm wondering what the erotica books are. I'm sure there 
are several of us who would be willing to help out with those. Shannon I am 
only one; but still I am one. I can not do everything, but I can do 
something. And, because I can not do everything, I will not refuse to do the 
something I can do. Everet Edward Hale ----- Original Message ----- From:

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] book donation Hi gang, We just received a donation 
of 38 books, so I took out the ones that I thought would be of more interest 
to people. (The rest of the books are romance/erotica). Question: there are 
3 Jennifer Chiaverini books - The Master Quilter, The Quilter's Legacy, and 
The Sugar Camp Quilt. Is someone else processing these? If so, I'll put the 
books into the 'Sell to a Used Bookstore' pile here in the office. If not, I 
can chop and scan them, and submit them to the download list. The other 
books I took out were: A Portrait of Jane Austen, by David Cecil Payment in 
Blood, by Elizabeth George Halfway to the Grave, by Jeaniene Frost Music to 
My Sorrow, by Mercedes Lackey Bedlam's Edge, by Mercedes Lackey BSO Beyond 
World's End by Mercedes Lackey Will try to get to processing them when I 
can. Carrie
