Hi All:
The next book I'd like to tackle is Calvin by Bruce Gordon

Any interest out there in discussing this book?

Even if you won't read it, are you around to discuss some of the themes?

Thank you.

Your touchstone, Calvin, goes to the man as an author, not to the book. The touchstone for the work in the upper right hand corner does not work for me at all.

Prof. Bruce Gordon

It appears the author is listed this way, and I unable to get the touchstone to work for the text.

ISBN 978-0-300-12076-9
Published by Yale U P 2009

I wonder why there is no touchstone for the work: Calvin by F. Bruce Gordon.


PS I have put it in my waiting-for-the-paperback list.

Putting in the Touchstone in this way gets the book: Calvin Gordon. Rather unsatisfactory.

I've ordered the book from a nearby library, so I should have it in another day or two.

I have the book, and I was thinking of starting it. Is there any interest in discussing this book --

Calvin by Prof. Bruce Gordon? vpfluke -- would you care to discuss it--post impressions....?

I will be traveling in Canada Oct 4 -11, but I plan on taking it with me, and I could post when I return. Although during the trip, I will not have any Internet access.

I will be traveling to San Antonio 10-16 October. I did get Calvin - Bruce Gordon, but it is a bit hefty, so I'm not sure how much I could read in the short-term.
