I would just like to thank the three of you for the book lists. <P>And NSR I am truly impressed by how your post looks and all the effort you made making it so user friendly. <B>You get an A++!</B> <P>Have a wonderful and as stress free as possible pre-holiday season there guys. I know my husband hates this time of year big time. We were even discussing the upcoming events today. Still he is a "Scrooge". <P>------------------<BR>God bless you and all of us.<P>Samantha<BR>

NSR, this is such a GREAT list, I am bringing it back up in case someone missed it. I bought a new book today - "The Solo Partner" by Deluca, and it looks really good, tyoo. I also read one called "Infidelity" by Subotnik (can't remember the exact title as H took all my books with him to supposedly read- HA!).<P>I ordered Dr Dobson's Love must be Tough from the library since you have mentioned it several times. Expecting it next week. Thanks!<P>Roll Me Away<P>------------------<BR>"Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things in which smiles and kindnesses and small obligations, given habitually, are what win and preserve the heart and secure comfort."<P>Sir Humphry Davy<BR>
