:)  And not only can you join us, you can avail of our pooled DWJ 
libraries, to help fill the gaps!

It is wonderful, isn't it?  Almost better was going into Hodges 
Figgis (across the road from the Waterstones) a while ago and seeing 
the DWJ spot in the children's section almost empty.  I found out 
that it had been full a few days before!  So *why* do the same 
bookshops so often have no DWJs in the adult section?
