An interesting story about a book...  There once was a book that I kept
downloading and then sending back to step one.  This was before I worked for
Bookshare.  I started validating it, but I was kind of not interested in the
story.  It was just not turning out to be what I had hoped for.  But I had
already done maybe fifty or sixty pages of editing, so I didn't want my work
to go to waste.  So I kept renewing, even though I didn't really want to
validate it.  Finally I stopped downloading it.  To anyone reading the
book's validation history on the step one, I probably looked like the
biggest flake.  If anyone had tried to base their rejection just on my
download history, they would have rejected it.  So then about two months
later I saw the same book on the step one list and I started feeling bad for
it. Yes, I feel bad for lonely step one books. So I downloaded it and fixed it up and uploaded with a little help from
G Cindy.  Now the book is in the collection and on the most frequently
downloaded list.  So I'm glad I stuck it out.  But my point... and at least
I think I have one is, you can't always base an assessment of scan quality
on the history of validator activities shown on the step one page.

Just a thought,
