Oh, dear. Yes, the date got away from me and the books were released--and you have eyes that are too sharp. In my defense--the books I have are books that people were going to reject or books that need sight. Or books that were sitting on the download list for a very long time and rather than have them deleted I thought I'd look at them. I haven't been downloading books since except one that is very worthwhile but was in such bad shape that it was going to be rejected--and I'd spent quite a bit of time paginating for the submitter. Some of the books may not be worthwhile saving--If Tammy is a mess I don't think it will be worthwhile for me to fix. Since I'm not fond of westerns, that may be the case of one or two others--and I will reject. I have taken two books of Amber's that no one wanted and that sound like they woule be good books for the collection. The one I'm working on now, and perhaps I should have done others that I've kept longer first, is over 900 pages missing a lot of words but I seriously doubt anyone would re-scan it and even if they did if it wold come out any better because of its size and the way it's bound. I do hope people will read it when it gets into the collection because it is marvelous in its history and very readable. My theory at the time was that rather than having the books sit on the download list or be deleted because no one was taking them, I would and that would keep the list small. I would love to know how many of the books on your or what used to be Rui's rescan list have been rescanned. But after a book is rescanned it then has to be revaldiated. I did some time ago release some books that someone rescanned but the scan, except for one, came out badly because of the print and I had to validate it anyone. BTW, After finishing the book I'm working on, Memoirs of Cleopatra, which I highly recommend, I plan to finish Transit of Venus, which I now own, and then will try Prince of Sinners. I do not have that book and so if the scan is pretty bad I'll release it, but all of Oppenheimer's,it seems, are on PG, and perhaps we can get them from there. They are rare classics. Most of the books I have are txt without page breaks, and yes, some are classics and some seem to be important. Since you were kind enough to post the list, if anyone wants me to release one of them I'll be happy to--either for someone else to validate or if someone promises to rescan. The books I've taken are books, with the possible exception of Oklahoma Sweetheart and Tammy Tell Me True, and possibly the westerns, that I really think should be in the collection and that people have said, as I said before, need sighted help. I know a lot of members really enjoy westerns, which is why I took them to salvage--they may not even be that bad--maybe they just need pagination. I haven't yet had a chance to look.
