Dear Booksharian Friends, The following list was updated tonight, December 20, 2007.I know Christmas and New Year's Day are coming, but you wouldn't have to scan these until you have the time.
I'll send the following books free to volunteers interested in scanning them. Anyone you like can validate them or you can put them up on step one. When the book is approved, please do anything you like with it.
I hope to mail these to a variety of people who have a special interest in them. I won't be boxing all of them up to send to only one or two people. If I spread them around, maybe they'll have better chances to be carefully scanned and validated and added to the collection.
As usual, please send your request and address off list to airadil@xxxxxxxxxxxxxI'll post which books are claimed and which are still available. Unless the submittor notifies the list of what book I've sent, I don't announce who has what.
I'll ship unrequested books to Bookshare.Thanks in advance for helping me clear out my book overage and for adding new books for all of us.
