I would agree except for for your last sentence. If the book is an interesting one or one worth being in the collection, my advice is to go ahead and scan it anyway, and do at least the basics, i.e., check that all the pages are there and do a spell check, and then note the problems or let me know--I don't mind making lots of corrections or filling in words and sentences while I've validating/reading a good book. I figure if it's a book I'd like to read anyway, I might as well do something useful, like validate it even if it has problems, while I'm reading. The three presumably Christian fiction books that I validated I thoroughly enjoyed, as I did the one Joni Tada book I validated. The only one I started that I released for someone else was by Catherine Cookson, and that had nothing to do with whatever with religion. There was too much dialect for me and it dealt with British lower class or working class people. I like my historical fiction to be about the nobility--fantasy, smile G.Cindy G.Cindy --- Barbara <barbarab65@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: I suggest that > people not scan books that have poor print quality > unless they have an excellent scanner.
