My name is Pat and I live in Florida. My skin will never be smooth again and my hair will never see color. I enjoy collecting autographs and playing in Paint Shop Pro.,along with reading and writing. Sometimes, I enjoy myself by doing volunteer "work" helping celebrities at autograph shows. I love animals and at one time I did volunteer work for Tippi Hedren's Shambala Preserve.

...the Rest of the Books I Had to Have But Haven't Read Yet....

Having just added 3 more books!... (my bookshelves are sagging!)

I went to the used book store.. *slaps hand, "stop that!"..

As you can see I purchased a hardback copy of Bleak House by Charles Dickens for 1.00.  Then I found The Works of Conan Doyle for 4.00 which was published in 1953..note the double columns of writing...and when I came home Wildthorn was waiting for me from Amazon.. along with the last Harry Potter movie!

...note that the Doyle book is written in Columns! (1953 Edition)

Your list is overwheming, Pat....You have enough books on this list to last you about 6 months---maybe less, the way you read. So many of them sound interesting to me---mostly the Biography's/Autobiography type books.....Good Luck, my dear!

That's such a brilliant list of books, Pat. I wish all the time that we were neighbours and could borrow books off each other.

I haven't read Bleak House but have seen the BBC drama from a couple of years ago. I think it must be an amazing book... and do actually own a paperback copy which I'll get to 'one day'.

Those are some nice finds. I'm especially intrigued by the double columns of the Doyle book, something I cannot recall seeing other than in the Bible, and the illustrations in the Dickens book look great.

Carl: Two strange things.. one is that for some reason YOU jumped in my mind when I saw that double columned book..don't have the slightest idea why.. and two.. I can find no publish date on it.. I'd guess in the 50's maybe early 60's but not later so I too was intrigues with the double columns!

Hmmm...maybe because I read my first Sherlock Holmes novel recently? I don't know. I'll have to ask my friend who seems to know everything about books and is a big Doyle fan what he knows about it.
