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 everything--grin) Cindy --- Dan Beaver <dbeaver888@xxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > I am releasing this book. > > Why?
