  JG - Your suggestion certainly beats a Sunday  afternoon of ESPN -
Actually, my hubs watches the book programs even more than I.  He even
orders C-Span tapes. I encourage him to use the library for the books,
but sometimes he just has to have his own copy.  Thanks for apprising us
of this opportunity. Carolyn Kindle Hughes Center
