About my libraryMy library is roughly two thirds fiction and the rest non-fiction (mostly U.S. politics, (auto)biographies and a few left-leaning polemics). I have a fairly broad reading palate and welcome suggestions. :) Reading Bastard Out Of Carolina has recently stirred an interest in Southern fiction.

Yes it did load.... finally... although not always

Pardon the intrusion, and I don’t want to ask in a message board, but as I see you a regular contributor to Common Knowledge . Where do I find the (all time) overall count in Zeitgeist. It used to be under the 200 Common Knowledge contributors but It seems to have disappeared.
Thanx in advance.
