Dear Jill and Everyone,

First, I'd like to ask a favor. If you have taken, The Orphan Train from the 
step one page, would you consider putting it back? I have had this book for a 
week and made many little adjustments to improve it. I should have renewed, but 
hadn't marked the day I downloaded it on my calendar as Cindy does. I planned 
to renew it. I expected to finish it during its second week in my keeping. The 
print copy just arrived from the library today. I needed it to understand a few 
things which didn't scan because they appear in print which is very different 
from the text. 

This is my first validation, and I'd love to complete the task I started.

Meanwhile, I downloaded, The Ivy Tree, by Mary Stuart, but even more than with 
my first book, I will need a library book to help me correct it. 

Oh, And, I just got the letter from bookshare telling me they have taken the 
book back today. I checked for it on the step one page and it wasn't there. 
Maybe it takes a little more time to replace a book on that page, so I will 
check it later.

Always With Love,

  Unless I'm missing something here, if someone was taking books to validate 
and then continuing to renew them just in order to read them without paying a 
subscription fee, they wouldn't need to renew them at all since once they 
download the book, they have it in a file on their computer. They could simply 
release the book; that wouldn't remove it from their computer. When I have 
renewed books it is because they need work and I am requesting them from the 
local library. If I then release the book it is because it hasn't come in to 
the library and I don't want to hold it up.  guess I'm a perfectionist too but 
I do want to make a book as good as I possibly can when I am validating it even 
though that isn't required.
