When Will My Scanned Book be Proofread?

It depends. Proofreaders may choose any book to proofread, just like scanners may choose any book to scan. The time in which your book will be proofread will depend on how well the book is scanned, how long or complicated the book is, and whether or not a proofreader finds the content interesting. If you have double-checked that your scan is very clean and has minimal scannos you have a better chance of having your book proofread quickly. If your book is especially long or has lots of footnotes and endnotes, it may be a bit daunting to a proofreader. If no one is proofreading your scan, you might consider emailing the Volunteer Discussion List to let other volunteers know about the book. Make sure to include a summary!
