Jim, SInce your renewal date is so close, I suggest you write to volunteer@xxxxxxxxxxxxx (which seems to be a change; I thought we were supposed to write to support@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, but I don't find that on the volunteer home page) or john.g@xxxxxxxxxxxx and ask them to please expedite the approval of those books, giving them the titles, of course, because you need the credits for renewal. They used to be very good at doing that when asked, and I'm sure they still are, since these people seem to be really on the ball.
