I think Sarah said that she'd be too busy with the baby for a while to do any validating, so I think it's safe to take them. I did mention to Lissi that there were books on the list for her but I think she was offlist for a while due to problems with her computer. Shannon's idea about writing to each is a good idea, but I think when the subject came up here once before it was decided that if the books stay on too long, or after the person was reminded that the books are there, it's o.k. to take them. Just to be safe -- you've posted here and I'll write to them offlist. Cindy --- "Shannon A.
