TC are not pushy, either, so one is left to one's own thots & pursuits --
Now that is a good recommendation from someone who knows the establishment
intimately! The store is a legend in the bookselling community. Glad to hear
the legend is correct.

We just got some kewl things in from Daedalus on line, whom I've mentioned
before to the list, but maybe should mention again. Unless they are all out
they had the Blackadder book of flower watercolors and some other fine
gardening and truly fine history selections last week.
<<Oh -- every time I've been at the library since you mentioned "The Secret
History" to me, I've looked but it continues to be checked out. Rats. >>
Ah yes! The Secret History, by Donna Tartt. Highbrow academic thriller. Kept
me on the edge, as they say. Keep on trying to get it.

up Walta & the others re the Denver Convention! >>
I think it will be a wonderful convention and do wish we could make it. I'd
like to see Lowell Baumunks' garden with all those fine 'forties historics,
myself. And the irises should be luminous in the mountain air.
