Hi All:

I am getting ready to validate my first book.  I have been volunteering a long 
time, just haven't validated anything.  I once took a book but reallyd din't do 
anything to it.  
What should all this page break stuff look like?  If I am reading the book on a 
pacmate or notetaker or with a braille display, what should these "page breaks" 
feel like?  I have read many books from Web braille and seen their page numbers 
but don't know waht the page breaks are supposed to look like.  I do not want 
this persons book to get rejected.
Also, if the book is excellent scan, complete, has all the necessary 
information, can I just upload the book to the admmen cue and then read it 
since it is still on my hard drive or is this illegal?  I know some people read 
along as they go and I really want to read this book but I don't want to keep 
renewing it over and over if it is good enough to go ahead and get in the 
collection just so I can read it.  Should I validate it it, wait until the book 
gets approved forthe collection, and then read it when I subscribe?  I guess I 
am asking is it okay to also read the book you validate.

Thanks a lot, and sorry for the ignorant questions.
