Thank you


On behalf of the folks who do a lot of proofreading (but never enough because of all the books in the library), "Thank you" for the kind comments.

I agree that having these books in digital version, rather than page images is much easier. Plus, Harry has established the system by which hovering on a Scripture reference usually brings up the Bible text, and the reader can set his preferred version from among several options. You can't do that in Google page image. However, we do use the Google page images to check to be sure many of the books don't have typos; so I'm glad they are there. By the way, you mentioned poor and misaligned. I'll add that sometimes missing pages occur in Google and we have to search for other sources to get the missing pages. Another advantage to CCEL, IMO, is that frequently one screen page is one chapter. Google page images leaves one figuratively "weeping" trying to find the right page when there are several hundred or sometimes over a thousand pages.

Another value to the library over Google books is the ability to "Browse" to pick authors or titles, which is not so easy unless you know what you are looking for in Google.

Thanks again.

P.S. -- If anyone has the inclination and would like to read with an eye for the typo, we can use all the help we can get. Some folks just can't read without noticing the errors. Anyone reading this who has that "problem" is more than welcome to tell us where the mistakes are in the books.
