Morning, Gwen!

Maybe you could refocus for a while, Gwen, and read some books and see if the 
synopses fit them.  I know there are many books needing better synopses and not 
many people have the patience to take the time to see if they can be improved.  
You could read books that interest you and if you think you can improve the 
long synopsis in particular, sent the title, author and suggestion on synopsis 
to Carrie.  You would be reading books you enjoy, reviewing ways to make them 
more interesting to prospective readers and doing a service all at the same 

Just a thought on another way to help Bookshare!
