Dear Booksharian Friends,

This is mostly for the newer volunteers who are considering the suggestion to read books through as well as use the spell checker or ranked spelling.

For fun, when I have time, I've kept samples of scannoes which wouldn't be caught by the spell checker because they are words. Mistakes like this can only be caught as you read them in context and realize they don't make sense. A couple of short, funny posts are at the bottom. Most of you have seen this before so please skip it.

Always with love,
