G'Day all, This is my first posting to this list, in
which I have been lurking for a few weeks. I am a high
school librarian and in all four schools in which I've
worked in NSW, Australia over the last 25 years there
has been a copy of "8 days of Luke". The schools my
daughters attended both had it as well (but one of
them came here so that doesn't count).
