Valerie, about the many books in a row, it caused me to wonder (in a  
general sense) if there could be a symbol that could be used to  
indicate that this sign (whatever it is) is repeated. This approach  
is often used in glossing. If I were glossing this, I might say BOOK++ 
+ to indicate signing book multiple times. Of course, glossing can't  
handle the "in a row".

But if that would make sense, (and if the rest of you agree with this  
idea :), if there are space constraints or if we find it to be  
generally useful, that symbol can help us communicate the duplication  
of a sign without having to write the sign itself extra times. That  
symbol could be placed near movement symbols if we need to record  
that the books were opening in a row or something.

Just a thought.
