Please, don't take all that discussion as a cue for what's allowed or
currently scheduled.  We talk about anything and everything that people are
reading, even if it's not related to DWJ.  We also go through dead periods
where it seems as though nobody is even subscribed to the list.  My own fear
is that the reason I'm not getting any mail is that I was accidentally
dropped myself--that happened to me back in 2000 and I didn't figure out the
truth for a good five months.  So please, talk away.  I get most of my new
book recommendations from this list because people like to talk about them.

I've posted about Harry Potter from the purely selfish reason that I had
this project in mind and I had nowhere else to put these reviews.  Creating
my own site or blog is...impractical for me right now, and yes I realize
that blogging these days is easier than sneezing into a hanky, but if I did
it, I'd feel obligated to continue with reviews, and that thought makes me
