It sounds from your description as if it should be
rejected and rescanned rather than validated.

I went to Amazon and read a couple of
reviews--professional, not readers'. Even if it
weren't 650 pages, it's not a book I'd be interested
in spending a lot of time on. smile

Sometimes I'll spend time on a book the subject matter
of which I'm not particularly interested in if the
submitter is a person on this list whom I like--which
is everyone--and everyone on this list contributes to
the best of his/her ability. And admittedly, I've
learned and found writers or genres I've come to like.

But this submitter is an anonymous Bookshare
Volunteer. It might be better, as has been said about
some others, that he/she learns that his/her efforts,
if careless and sloppy, will not recdeive the $2.50
reward for submission.

I suggest you download and reject it, putting those
reasons in the comments section.

(See, people? I'm learning not to try to save
