Dear Booksharians, Because I had a great surprise guest for Christmas, I got behind validating but will be back to work on the 26th. I had the last 7 pages of the very long index at the end of the book of lost tales volume one to finish validating and two maps to describe before uploading it. If Anyone has this book by Christopher Tolkien, the first volume in the history of middle earth, I'd appreciate it so much if you'd return it to step one so I can cap off this difficult project at last. Before I return to holiday hostessing I send you my heartfelt wishes for a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. It will be a joy catching up with your e mail on the 26th and to dive in to validating again. Always with love, Lissi ----- Original Message ----- From: Jill O'Connell To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, December 15, 2006 8:37 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] submitted I have submitted Crazy in Alabama by Mark Childress, the author of One Mississippi. He has a wonderful ability to mix humor and serious and I think his use of dialog is outstanding. I hope one of you will enjoy validating this book as much as I enjoyed scanning and reading it.
