The List of Lost Books

These are some of the books we lost in the flood. I know there are more, and we'll probably add titles as we remember them; we'll also remove titles as we reacquire them. Again, it's not a wish list--more of a eulogy, really--but anyone who wants to give us a gift in the future can refer to it. Aren't you glad we've simplified your gift giving?

Oh well, the copy of Delicious will stay here with me. Though, I promise to spearhead the rebuilding of the Jane Austen portion of your library. And your copy of Fiddlefarch (mis-spelling intended;).
