Is  there a place on line, where you can find out things for a book like the 
contents of books that kind of thing
I  know you can wait until you see a sighted person and that is cool but 
wondered if there is such a  place where you can find out things the little 
things without sighted help.
Also Bob thought he heard once, like if it is a text book or an important book 
where things have to be precise but on fiction books if it didn't mess up the 
book some things didn't matter like we've had books before where headings 
weren't there and lots of times the page numbers you don't hear them in a book 
they don't show up when the book comes up and is excepted anyhow because of 
like software or any number of things.
Because he says he has put up books that he was sure he had the page numbers in 
and stuff and when he has looked at them or brought them down none of those 
things are in there.
I know you  have to do a good job that kind of thing
I have even had a person who does not volunteer for bookshare who just reads 
tell me that all that stuff distracts from the book and breaks up the text and 
it bothers him.
Just thought I'd ask.
Cause some books no matter what a blind person does some books are grand but 
some books  especially these tiny ones stuff just doesn't come out and this is 
about the 4th time I've gone through this book in fact got so dilligent on it 
that ended up putting up a partial book not sure how that happened but it did.
I'm ready for some new books LOL these same 9 books LOL have been sitting on my 
table for months and I've redone them so many times that wow they are broke 
*smile*
