Hello to All:

The date is Wednesday October 27 @ 8 PM EDT
The link to access the chat room is below

With the click of just a few keys, we can download books from the National 
Library Service Bard Site and begin reading immediately. Gone are the days of 
waiting for a book to arrive in the mail. Patrons with access are grateful for 
this terrific development. When any significant change takes place, there are 
questions. Dave Bond and Alan Lemly want to answer yours during our next Books 
And Beyond. Together, they moderate the Bardtalk list and have been doing so 
for almost a year. How did this list begin? What types of questions do they 
answer? The website Bardtalk goes hand in hand with the list. How do they 
differ? If you are new to digital players, computers,or other devices to  which 
digital books can be transferred and have questions about downloads, this is 
a show you won't wish to miss. Never in our wildest dreams could any of us have 
envisioned such a momentous change. The digital player means we are reading 
more books than ever before. It is a ground breaking achievement worthy of 
celebration and congratulation. Eager to answer questions  and share 
information to users of the Bard site, Dave Bond and Alan Lemly realized they 
had the same desire. Alan says he is the detail man. Dave sees the bigger 
picture. It is a combination of two men of like minds dedicated to the same 
mission. Through the Bardtalk list they moderate,we all benefit. Founded a year 
ago, with an accompanying website, bardtalk.com, information is dispensed to 
those with any and all questions about everything to do with the bard site and 
digital players.    
Alan Lemly was born in Jackson, Mississippi. He graduated from the University 
of Mississippi with a BA in Accounting in 12/78 and a Master of Accountancy in 
12/79 and worked all his professional career in Memphis, TN until 2007.
Dave Bond received his Associates Degree from Reading Area Community College 
in Technical Illustration in 1976. He went on to receive a BS in Bible with 
minor in Biblical Counseling from Lancaster Bible College in 1995. Dave 
worked in ministry to victims of crime from 1995-2000. He has been involved 
with web design and writing since 2000. Dave enjoys writing inspirational 
fiction. The BARD Talk list is a support and information list for patrons of 
the NLS 
who read digital talking books produced by the NLS. Any topic related to the 
NLS and the BARD site, or the NLS dtbm (digital talking book machine), as well 
as topics related to other players and their connection to the NLS and BARD, 
are welcome.
The BARD Talk list will be one year old on November 20, and the BARD Talk 
web site (http://www.bardtalk.com) will be one year old on January 1, 2011.
