    RonClinton That is a beauty of a building. I have wonderful memories of my home town library as well. The place was magic.

    I can't even imagine how cool it would be to own a Carnegie Library, not only because of the practical utility of the place and the thrill of owning an actual library, but also what it represents, the history of the Carnegie foundation that built over 2500 libraries in small towns all over the world from the 1880s to 1930, likely one of the most generous philanthropic activities in history. My personal association with the Carnegie initiative is that the one in my hometown was the first library I ever visited, and continued to do so for years, until a newer and much larger public library opened up across town when I was probably around twelve. But I'll always hold a special spot in my heart, with the few memories that I still have of it, for the Carnegie library and the children's room downstairs that first exposed me to the wonder of libraries and books. Here's a shot of it:

    That’s awesome. I would absolutely buy that if I lived in Indiana and had 250k to spend.

    Best of luck to you! As I am going to burn through my deductible with my shoulder surgery I am pressing the doctor for a full knee replacement this plan year. I am hopeful he will approve it as everyone I know who has had this done says it's a breeze and relieves their pain.

    I've had my knee worked on twice with little relief so I am highly interested in any feedback. Per the doctor the shoulder surgery is an actual repair where the knee surgeries were more like revisions.

    The real bummer is that it's my right shoulder and I'm very much right hand dominant. I can't think of much I do with my left. This will be interesting for sure.
    I am not familiar with that surgery. I am two weeks removed from wrist surgery and have just returned to work. Looking forward to the wrist getting back to where it was before the surgery and then even better. Tried reading or the first time in two weeks last night. That was the first time I could hold a book. After two hip replacements this one was a breeze. Hope your surgery goes well and corrects the issue!

    It is a strange one. It has all the characteristics of a PS book, Except it's dimensions. It however does not say PS anywhere. Other dual books I have seen list both publishers on the copywrite page and cover. I am guessing that PS could get it out faster so they sent the CD file to one of their printers.

    Received the Cemetery Dance Trade edition of Peter Crowther's 'Things I Didn't Know My Father Knew' today and I am puzzled. The book says that it is published by Cemetery Dance but it is not like any CD book I have every seen. It looks like a grown up PS Publishing book. I say grown up because it is oversized at 7x10. Other than that it is all PS. Art Printed on boards and extremely bright white paper. The binding appears to be glued. There are several pieces of art sprinkled throughout and at over 500 pages looks like a good value at $40.

    I was so excited to add a Rick Hautala lettered.

    The lettered I did receive I have no interest in.


    That sucks! Hopefully they are able to get the correct book in your hands.

    Was able to go to sleep again a little after 3:30. Planning on a lazy day and turning in early.
