Thanks to two anonymous readers I've been able to cross two books off my list. Thanks so very much!
This time of year a number of internet sites and blogs run lists of gift ideas for "men".
For the record, I definitely don't want a flask or a knife or a pipe.
In years past, some very kind readers have amazingly sent gifts on Christmas. Those gifts have all been helpful and, of course, very much appreciated.
To be honest, I've got a number of academic projects I'd really like to finish this coming year and I require a number of resources to realize those goals. And what I need isn't going to be cheap.
I've put in some links below but a quick check on www.Bookfinder.com is always the recommended way to find books at the lowest possible price. You can also check out my Amazon Wish list - see the panel on the right.
