I'm very new to this list, and unfamiliar with all of it's functions.
This post intrigued me and thought I'd inquire.
Is this an open to invitation to all to read these titles and then discuss them
on line?
Please excuse my novice air, or for asking the obvious.
In my brief visits here, I've been tempted to participate and found this a good
jumping in point. Thanks, in advance for tips and advice!
