Good day to all the members of Community!
I've been long searching for this kind of website, because I'm not a native English speaker, and I know foreign websites less than ours. I am myself a book-scanner and in our country I scan books every day and then upload them to a national torrent-tracker for free - the number of books for 9 months is now fastly approaching the number of 150. I like this hobby of mine, and I also accept book orders and people often ask me for help - so I go to the library and take the necessary book.
Now, why do I adress you? You are the Community of Scanners, as I thought. I've searched the forum, but did not find a thread where one might ask for a book to be scanned. The other day I've been absolutely astonished how many books are being published in America, or Great Britain, or generally in the West. I am myself very fond of literature and literary criticism and everything connected with it, and so, when I see those interesting books, the impossibility to get them drives me mad. So the only chance I could ever see them is in the form of a e-book. But there must be some volunteers, so I thought, who do scan books. And now I seem to have found them - YOU.
Now I'd like to ask you humbly - is there a possibility that someone responds me? There is one I book I hanker for, but there will surely be some others.
Probably there wasn't a thread on requests, because you, Americans, didn't need them, because you've got everything in your libraries. But I am not granted such a pleasure - therefore I ask you for help. Is someone ready to scan the following book:
Baird, James. Ishmael: A Study of the Symbolic Mode in Primitivism. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1956
I'd be extremely happy if anyone agreed.
