Does anyone use bookshare? Does anyone like it? I think it is really annoying for downloading books and stuff.

so yes i think bookshare is great


Re:Bookshare



oh I want to try it!


Re:Bookshare



Lets look at it's pro's and con's because I think it is useful, but annoying. Yes, the books comes in a .zip extention, and is full of errors sometimes, but it's a great place to find matterials in braille when there isn't another option.

Re:Bookshare



the process of unzipping the files is annoying but when you finally get there it is so useful. I was annoyed though because I wanted to get the new Dan Brown Book "the lost symbol" they had the file but it wouldn't open!


Re:Bookshare



hey rebecka i think it could have ben the file type or maybe the file isn't supported


Re:Bookshare



it was weird-I couldn't extract the file and I didnt have to type in my password like usual


Re:Bookshare



Perhaps you are doing the process in the wrong fashion?


Re:Bookshare



Well, i have been using Bookshare since 2002. I have really enjoyed the use of that particular web page. I have had o issue with extracting books. Have you been using the new site?


Re: Bookshare
