About my library"The bibliophile is the master of his books, the bibliomaniac their slave."
--- Hans Bohatta

"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity... we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance."
--- A.E. Newton

“If you cannot read all your books, at any rate handle, or as it were, fondle them – peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them at any rate be your acquaintances.”
--- Winston Churchill

YAY!! GGK is coming to Ottawa on April 28, to the Ottawa Writer's Festival! Guess who's going ;). Have you bought the book yet?
I meant to mention, I'm listening to House of Silk too! I like Derek Jacobi's narration.
Wow, we share a ton of books.
I LOVE Chris Van Allsburg! He is an amazing talent. Harris Burdick is very cool eh? Those two by Nicholas A. Basbanes sound great too.
Happy new year and great reading for 2012! And additional good wishes for your sweet family. I so enjoy knowing you all! - Karen
Yeah, I thought you'd like Memory. The only problem with Bujold's books is that they end too quick - probably 'cause I read them so fast. ;)
*Grin*. Love it! Okay, give plain, ordinary, lovable Jaden a hug for me too ;-)

And HUGE congrats to Ko-san Tameryn, so cool!
LOLOL. Thank the good Lord for headphones, wine and motorcycles!!
LOL! yeah, know what you mean :-)
Yes, I love my edition of the Ancient Mariner. I got it when I joined FS the first time, back in the 90's. I've read it many times. The LE has tempted me too, it looks lovely.
Sandra, thank you so much. It is very kind of you to think of me. I did have a great dinner party and enjoyed myself greatly. I need to master the skill of doing the party nicely and also enjoying the guests. I noticed that I fussed with all the party details and did not have as much time as I'd like to visit with individuals. So, now I want to follow-up and have more dinners!

You two do dinners very nicely and inspire me!

I hope you are looking forward to happy holiday season.

love, Karen
Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries, Sandra. I didn't think you'd mind if I reciprocated! :-)

Hope all is well. See you around the LT campus!

Best wishes - Joe
Hello Sandra

Just in case you thought I'd forgotten I promised you some feedback. A succession of disasters delayed The Day to 26 May. But I was up there earlier in the week, and am assured that the AV guy will be there to record it, so in due course you will get a DVD.

All best
Hugh
Hee Hee! I hope you win!! :-D
Hello Sandra

The score with the 'Raiders of the Lost Larch' presentation so far is:
The gent who's organising the presentation at the Uni is looking into the practicalities of video-recording it. No feedback yet, but as D-day is 28th April we have time in hand.
Plan B is, that today we had a visitation from a remarkably efficient lady who works for IT at head office. I now have a full set of instructions for posting the powerpoint file on our ftp site for you to download -- when I've added some notes I may do this anyway, but be warned that the file already occupies 45MByte, which is more than the whole of the first hard drive I ever had!
Will keep you posted, but in the meanwhile, many many thanks for your interest.

All best
Hugh
