I want to send out a special happy Easter holiday greeting, especially to the sighted volunteers amongst us, whoever you are.

Those of us who are bookshare users get the benefits of being able to read books as they are put on the system, we get $2.50 taken off of our next year's subscription, and we get to converse with like-minded book loving folks.

However, the sighted volunteer has a thankless task. They can't read the books they've worked so hard to get into the system, they don't get any payment/credit for their effort, and they have to listen to us prattle on about our dogs our canes and long dead technologies and NLS readers.

So, I'd like to take just a minute to thank our sighted volunteers. And I ask my fellow bookshare members to join me.

Happy belated Easter.
