Hi Carrie.
Do you know if Bookshare will also be getting Touch of Dead by Charlaine 
Harris?  It's a Sookie Stackhouse supplement so I'm guessing it'll be a 
bestseller at some point soon.

  Hi gang,

  Here are today's bestsellers:

  Hardcover Fiction
  HER FEARFUL SYMMETRY, by Audrey Niffenegger
  THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS, by Debbie Macomber
  JULIET, NAKED, by Nick Hornby
  ROUGH COUNTRY, by John Sandford (in the collection)

  Hardcover Non-Fiction
  HAVE A LITTLE FAITH, by Mitch Albom
  THE TIME OF MY LIFE, by Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi
  THE MURDER OF KING TUT, by James Patterson and Martin Dugard (in the 

  Paperback Fiction (Trade and Mass Market)
  COVET, by J. R. Ward
  BORN OF NIGHT, by Sherrilyn Kenyon
  THE RENEGADE HUNTER, by Lynsay Sands
  RAZOR SHARP, by Fern Michaels
  THAT HOLIDAY FEELING, by Debbie Macomber, Sherryl Woods and Robyn Carr

  I don't know if we can put the recent bestseller ARGUING WITH IDIOTS by Glenn 
Beck into the collection. The text is black on a mottled yellow background, so 
the OCR program will do a horrible job trying to read the text. We'd have to 
type most of the book in. And every page has little comments alongside the main 
text, which means rearranging the text on every page. It's a nightmare. I'm on 
the fence about whether we should try to process it or not. If someone sighted 
wants to try to tackle the book, please let me know. You need to have a copy of 
the book in order to figure out everything on the pages and to be sighted.
