Hi, just checking in! My apologies for not getting my recording in yet. If it's ok, I'd like another couple weeks to get it done. I've been swamped at work :help: I promise I haven't forgotten :)

That would be great! What would you like to use as your catalog name? It can be your forum name, real name, or something else :)

I'd like to read sections 13 and 15, if I may, the selections from Carroll and Kant (hard to resist reading such differing texts in the same collection... love it!)

Section 5 is PL OK! Great reading! Interesting to hear his thoughts on browsing :D Ah, when he talks of the joy of discovering books yourself -- ain't that the truth...

I'd like to claim 14, 17, and 19 :)

For 17, does "The Analects, by Confucius - Section I" mean I should read "Book 1" of this?
