Library of America Subscribers

Ahh, the joy of opening the little white box to see what the good editors sent. Does anyone else rip off the shrinkwrap and deeply inhale the fresh paper and ink, or is that just me? How about untucking the little ribbon so someone else 'in-the-know' could never Sherlock which volumes I've not touched since shelving...

This group is for Library of America aficionados. Please share your ideas for future volumes, or other ideas. Welcome!
