Hi, all, I found an easy first book to validate, one I've read twice in 
childhood.  I've been through and cleaned up the elipses, fixed a few spelling 
errors--the quality was excellent and there weren't many, and made sure the 
file was saved once again as a .rtf file.  It was originally an RTF file before 
I made the changes and I made sure there was one again.  There are no 
unnecessary or garbage characters.  A short and long synopsis was already 
included by a previous editor and/or submitter.  Categories have already been 
filled in.  Aside from copyright info and ISBN numbering, what else is left for 
me to do before uploading in a nutshell?  Have I left anything out?  I've read 
over the validation instructions, but they may have me down with a different 
name as I'm not the only Jamie on bookshare.  Is it okay that there seem to be 
two sets of page numbers?  There seem to be a few blank pages in the front 
material but none in the core content in the book and no table of contents to 
worry with.  Let me know if anybody has anymore suggestions for this book, 
please?  It's a brother for the orphelines by Natalie Savage Carlson, and there 
are several more by her I'd love to see available.  She is a great children's 
writer, and I hope and pray that many people will benefit from having access to 
this book.  It was a great pleasure to read it again.  I know I can't read 
straight through every validation, but this was quite fun.  Have a blessed day. 
 Thanks for all the help and suggestions so far.
