Re: ~[SOLO] The Enemies of Books by William Blades - annise

Ava, you'd be most welcome as DPL! Thank you! There's no great rush to PL sections right away. If you take a week or so to get around to listening, that's just fine. I'm going to be working at a leisurely pace, anyway, so I might not get back here to look for PL notes until I'm ready to post the nex...

I've had my chance to BC the Christmas Carol Collection for the past two years, so I'd be happy to surrender the job to anyone else who wants to opportunity to take it on.

If acceptable, may I read it? Shall we end war? : a sermo...
