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
