Well, I can't claim credit for doing ALL of the work with all of those books.  
There were 22 books that had been scanned by other volunteers (and a few by 
me), so I merely OCRed, saved, and submitted most of them.  (There are still 
another 30 books waiting for office volunteers to edit before submitting them.  
Books that are for specific projects have to be edited before submission but 
the books I submitted were just for general usage, which is why they weren't 
edited before submission.)  Some books that I've scanned have been submitted by 
other volunteers, so it all evens out in the wash.  So consider the books to be 
from the Bookshare office rather than just me.  The reason I use my name 
instead of 'Bookshare Volunteer' is so that if there are problems, the 
validator has a name to use to ask questions.  I hope all this makes sense...

Wow Carrie, now I feel like a great big under-achiever!  <smile>.  No, really, 
good for you.  That's a lot of books, and we're lucky to have people to  do so 
much scanning!

I also submitted these but can't find them on the download list, so I guess 
someone has grabbed them already:

The Cutout
The Music Lover's Handbook

All of these books are at the Bookshare office, so if you find something 
garbled during editing, just ask me or Marissa. We can find the book and tell 
you what it should be.
Thx, Carrie
