Robin has a good idea she just sent to me with another book suggestion.
I am sure she does not mind if I send it on for your consideration.

<snip>
Another idea for your list, which might take a bit more effort, is to
make it annotated--just a couple
sentences on each book that tells the primary gist. There's no doubt
many books on your list that I'd
LOVE to read,<snip>

THAT would have to be a great big GROUP effort. I do have 30% of the
books on the list and can and do intend to fill in many of the original
dates, etc. but annotation? I doubt if I will ever get to that. But I
am happy to cut and paste a couple sentences that any of you want to add
to any of the titles.

Here is the list as it is right now. And notice I added a URL at the
bottom of another list of books. To be consistent I probably should of
done that to the SepSchool list instead of adding them to this list.
But Emerson had something to say about consistency being the
hoboglobins(sp?) of small minds or something like that. Dale
