Please; I would just like to make it clear that much excellent work HAS 
been, and continues to be, published by individuals,  and even works of 
lesser quality can be the equivalent of (so-called) published books.  I

best sellers- can be appalling.  It'll be interesting to see how Mr. 
Potter fares this time...  No; I'm talking about the overall 
performance; and not making any comparisons.  Our mandate must simply 
include continuous improvement.

DP is, I assume, aware that folk with enthusiasm will be more involved 
with a work.  Upcoming books are announced at several stages of the 
process so that anyone with interest can grab stuff that excites them, 
both for processing and whitewashing.  (I have just grabbed /The Old 
Coast Road/, since I'm very interested in historic transportation.)  By 
definition, proofers will, when possible, go for what they enjoy.
