I think that most often when a book does not get categorized it is because it is a publisher quality book and the publisher just did not bother with that before submitting it. However, I think that can be fixed easily. I just recently downloaded a book that, even though it was categorized, had a paucity of information in the metadata. Specifically it did not have a publisher nor an ISBN there. I did a quality report pointing that out and the very next day those metadata on the book's detail page were filled in. I very much suspect that if you do a quality report saying that such and such category or categories need to be added to the metadata it probably will be.

I got a couple of new books that I was planning to scan and when I startedchecking them out, I was beginning to groan because they weren't going to beeasy scans at all!! Pictures, lots of variety of fonts and colors and who knows what, worse than usual! I'd checked Bookshare a few weeks ago to see if they were available and they were not. But, on a wild hair or some suchthing, I just decided to look again last night. What a nice surprise to findthe books had been added into the collection since the last time I looked. Oh, huge, big sigh of relief!!! The "Pioneer Woman Cooks" was really going to be a big drag, but it's kind of a fun book, now I can just sit back and enjoy!! "Southern Plate" might not have been so bad, but, hey, I'm just as glad as the next person to just be able to pick up a book and read it and not have to work so hard first! I downloaded the brf file of Pioneer Woman Cooks and there are issues with the way the fractions come through probably because of the symbols and I'mgoing to check out the daisy as well to see how things come through, but thebook is very usable. There are places where's no space betweens the commaand the next word and fractions do come through pretty strange at times butcan figure them out. Oh, and also, am just curious why some of the books don't get categorized, like these two books, for example. Anyway, thanks, Bookshare! Charlene
