A book that Judy S and I are looking for and can't find is

Midnight Moon by Dorothy Lyons.

Pedantry and mastery are opposite attitudes toward rules. To apply a rule to 
the letter, rigidly, unquestioningly, in cases where it fits and in cases where 
it does not fit, is pedantry... To apply a rule with natural ease, with 
judgment, noticing the cases where it fits, and without ever letting the words 
of the rule obscure the purpose of the action or the opportunities of the 
situation, is mastery. -George Polya, professor of mathematics (1887-1985)

        If you can find any of these G.A. Henty books that are cheap and 
someone is willing to scan them, I think they'd be good additions to the 
collection. It's more likely that they'd be found at a garage sale rf flea 
market or used-book shops.

          Dear Booksharian Friends,

          In a couple of weeks Akron will have an antiquarian book fair with 
over 60 dealers. Often these books, many of which are rare collector's items, 
are too expensive for our Volunteer budgets, but you never know what perfectly 
priced treasure is there.

          I haven't saved all of the exchanges about series or authors some of 
you are trying to cover. If you are looking for any books, write to me off list 
with the book name and author and the highest price you'll pay. If I find what 
you're looking for I'll buy it and the postage to send it to you will be my 

          I could also call you on my cell before buying anything for you, and, 
you can pay me after you get the book. 

          I'm not sure what I'll be looking for; probably something Irish, 
Scottish, Welsh or poetry. The fun is in the search. 

          Always with love,
