Ah, I think I get it now. You're using the command line interface or typing
j:books at the prompt, correct? The script assumes that paths are specified in
this format:

drive_letter:\Folder_name

so that there is always a backslash before the name of the folder. The backslash
is always there if you drag and drop, but apparently it accepts a typed path
without the "\" and processes it just fine - except that it doesn't know where
in the path to truncate things to get just that last part of the folder name -
the part that is actually spoken. I can fix the script to check for an entry
like this, but in the meantime just type the path like so

j:\books

and it should work just fine.
