  Hi, Carrie. You may not be paid staff, but you certainly do enough that you 
definitely deserve the recognition. Thanks! Take care.

    You're quite welcome!  I'm not actually a member of the Bookshare staff, 
only a volunteer, but thanks for your kind words anyway.
    I didn't read my email before I went off to the monthly oldies-but-goodies 
book sale this morning.  So I didn't get any gardening books, but there are 
still lots of gardening books left over every month.  I'll get some container 
gardening books next month.  My apologies about not getting them this month!
    I did however get a bunch of books that I hope some people will like, to 
wit:

the World of Music by David Ewen

    Fiction:

    They should all be on the download list in a few weeks.

    I grabbed a book of Agatha Christie plays (The Mousetrap, Ten Little 
Indians, Appointment with Death, The Hollow, Witness for the Prosecution, 
Verdict, and Go Back for Murder) before I remembered that we can't put plays on 
the website.  Rats!  Sure wish we could.  I'll talk to Gustavo about it next 
week. No, wait, he's going to be at CSUN.  I'll do it the week after then.

      Hi, Carrie, and all other Bookshare staff. I know there has been a lot of 
talk about what everyone wants to see on the site and various suggestions for 
improvements. I'm no different in that I have things I'd like to see, too, and 
improvements can always be made, no matter how good it gets, but I'm grateful 
for what we have. I'm grateful for the site and all it has to offer, and I'm 
grateful for all volunteers and in-house staff and all the work you guys do. I 
hope to be contributing more over the summer, but at least for me, right now, 
things are way too busy around here! Take care.

        Yes, there are several projects in the works.  Unfortunately the books 
that will bring in grant money (so Bookshare can stay afloat) are not the same 
books that most members want to read (sci fi, mysteries, romance and some other 
category that I've forgotten - Westerns maybe?). So the staff does a juggling 
act, trying to keep everyone happy - investors, members, volunteers.  It's a 
bit rough on the staff members, since they WANT to make everyone supremely 
happy but they know they can't.  I try to put the books I find (based on what 
everyone tells me in the discussion group) into the submission queue as fast as 
I can, but my time is limited too.  We really do try, we really really do...

        Thanks!  Carrie

          It seems to me that they definnitely  need more staff to approve 
books..  One person can only do so much, and yet Marissa keeps dreaming up more 
projects and bringing in more books, even though she tells us they are working 
on a bunch of donated books.  It seems the gardening books should get some 
priority as well as cookbooks.

          Glad I can help!

          One word of caution: Marissa brought in 5 bags of books on Thursday, 
and I got 2 more bags of books this weekend, so it'll take a while for all of 
the books (probably 80-100) to move thru the queue.  Don't hold your breath 
waiting for them!  I hope we can streamline the process, and get them submitted 
sooner, but you know how it goes...

            Hi all,

            I went to the book sale again today and came away with:

Fleischman

            There were probably 100 gardening books at the book sale, lots of 
them being 
            Sunset Publishing (which is a few miles from the Bookshare office). 
What 
            type of gardening books do people want? I can pick some up during 
next 
            month's book sale.

            Carrie
