Hi..I have a technical question. I like your Book Index. How did you do this??
Your blog is excellent and so well written. I visit frequently..

Hey Joyce,


Thanks for the good word. I love your blog too!

I think that you will laugh when I tell you about my book index. Blogger allows the user to set up a separate page which I did. Whenever I add a book I just hit the Edit symbol and throw it in where it fits in alphabetical order. This is very inelegant and if you look closely i have not gotten the fonts and sizes exactly correct. I searched for an application or plug in to do this but I could not find anything that works well.

Should you find a better solution please do let me know.

All the best.

Hi Brian,
Occasionally I lurk around on other blogs (linking from Tracy's, in this case) and was interested to see the books listed here. I read both Middlemarch and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress this year and couldn't resist commenting to say I enjoyed reading your take on both.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the good word Kelly.

Both of those are such great books in very different ways!
