Hey you all,

Just asking, as I plan another round of "scanning"  What kinds of animal 
books would be good on the site.

My library has a well limited, but focused supply.  We have predominantly 
books on game animals Deer, bear, wolves, rabbits, and other small critters, 
and the other predators, wolves, lions, carnivores, and the primates.  We 
also have a few on Dolphins, sharks, and other fish. Seals, bats, polar 
bears, squids, clams, and a few others.  We have a fairly small section on 

We have a huge bird section.  Would any bird books be of any use on the 
site.  There is one, it may be a pain to scan, but my brother says the 
information is great called "Lives of North American Birds"  There is also 
one called "Hand feeding wild birds.  And there are ones on particular 
birds, Chickadees, and bluebirds come to mind.

I also have a few, "booklets" from a bird song course, or courses I have 
laying around here, they are copyrighted, and not scripts, so would think 
they are useful.  But let me know.

Also we have a enormous section on domestic animals, pets, and livestock. 
Would be of anyone's interest to have books on Unusual pets like lizards, 
snakes, and the like.  On hamsters, gerbils, guinea Pigs, ferrets, and the 
like, books on raising rabbits, sheep, cows, horses, goats, pigs, ducks and 
other birds.

I am going to be submitting eventually a collection on reptiles, I have

Snakes with hyperlinks
Lizards of the World
Turtles, Tortoises, and Teripans Survivors in Armor

So it covers pretty good that section of animal ness.

Let me know what you are thinking.

Smile.  I love reading this stuff, and will have eventually seven books by 
Joy Adamson, the "born free" series up too.

Born Free
Living Free
Forever Free
Pippa's Challenge
The Spotted Sphinx
Elsa the True Story of a Lioness
Elsa's Cubs

But let me know what you are interested in.  Oh, we have a section on 
domestic birds, and on aquariums. and Attracting wild life, and creating 
wildlife friendly landscaping too.

Let me know O.K. smile, am open to suggestions.

Is there an animal you wanted to read about but haven't because you didn't 
have the book?

Guys I am free till September and then will have to go dormant for a while, 
or so I am telling myself, we shall see, smile.  So let me know o.k.  I like 
reading the science, and animal books, and enjoy doing art and biographies. 
I have a lot to be "edited" but am always looking for other things to scan 
and add to the pile.

Am working on a few on the Great Lakes, my home turf as it were, and should 
have them up soon, and one on Ghosts and Haunting of Pennsylvania.  Am 
working on "lighthouse Tales" right now.

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to
stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs.
