Subject:  Re: Cheaper SW Books?

Books on a "shoestring"?? Here's what we do in Nicaragua -- not real fancy
but lot's nicer than photocopying: Upon completion of a translation, we
print out our translation on 8 1/2 x 11 label sheets and then, with
scissors for cropping, affix the labels right on the page of the book. Of
course, we can't distribute copies for every student that way, but then
that's why we call them "library books". Another advantage is that we
actually have to pay for the original -- so no copyright issues. (By the
way, NSLP obtains copyrights prior to reproducing -- compnaies issue them
pro forma.) Well, this means doing the translations yourselves -- but you
end up with a tolerably nice edition. _- James SK
