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...

  type of gardening books do people want? I can pick some up during next
  month's book sale.
