Gerald, I assumed that those were the books people were asking about, i.e., books that had been sitting on the download list for a very long time, not ones that had been released. When I clicked on some of the titles at the bottom of the list I found they were submitted in spring and fall of 2006. The Spanish-language book at the bottom of the list is probably in excellent shape, since it was submitted b Dilsia, as native Spanish-speaker. Probably it only needs the basic minimum checking and could then be in the collection.
