Hi Sarah - lovely to see you back here again!  (Though a shame about 
Alabama, if you're feeling stuck in it.)

I was just reminded that I'd re-discovered _Bridge of Birds_ thanks 
to that list (it having previously been 'that wonderful book with the 
cover that looked like that, which was shelved roughly there in the 
library two states ago', which just doesn't help you find a book), in 
a nice bit of serendipity.  And _Cold Comfort Farm_ came either from 
that or the slightly earlier one.  I'd never heard of it before - 
imagine life without 'there'll be no butter in hell'.  Or don't!

Very nice to have you back - and hope you'll have lots to share after 
so long (lots of books, life experiences, music, food ... it's all
