I don't mind, really. When I started looking up the books the other nght most of them were simple to write a one- or two-line synopsis for. The Garth Nix books' summaries were so detailed, and other than writing that they were horror/fantasy/mystery i didn't know what to do. Anyway, there were so many PQ books that night and I started so late I gave up. smile. Most days, though, there aren't any. The other thing I can do, though, is not include those PQ books on the list I send. Maybe that would be better. Then people wouldn't get frustrated. I think after lunch I'll send out a survey to tose wo receive the lists. smile G.Cindy --- Ann Parsons <akp@xxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi all, > > G. Cindy, you shouldn't have to do that.
