It's absolutely okay and legal to read the book; I do it while I am validating 
to get the best possible copy in the collection. But you certainly can read 
your copy later if you prefer.

  Subject: [bksvol-discuss] validation question


  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.
  Kerri
