Happy New Year to you all. I missed the first part of the last

swimming . . .

We've been doing a giant weed of our bookshelves to try and give
shelf-space to some of the ones on the floor. This hasn't been done for
nearly 30 years, and if you do need to weed your bookshelves, I

WHAT on Earth! we were doing with this book on our shelves. (Does anyone
remember Shere Hite?) And also I no longer feel the need to keep Dr
Spock, though he was a great comfort to me 25 years ago.

Ob DWJ - I was given a lovely hardback copy of 'The Game' for Christmas,

On another note, I think that we may FINALLY be getting a paper edition
of 'The Mislaid Magician', after only two - or is it perhpas three? -
