  1. Impressive booklist. Considering ourselves average with being well-read, wife Ruthie and I have read (gulp!) maybe twenty percent of those you displayed. Anyway, our local paper publishes my travel pieces and my Andy Rooney-type columns…whenever the managing editor can spare the space. Poor Nancy can never spare any money to pay me for them. OK for now, but I can do better. Meantime, I’ve just now opened a blog as a forum-workshop for me and my fellow writer wannabees. In my prior two experiences with writer’s clubs, not much got written and virtually nothing was ever published. I hope we’ll avoid being Desper-Doodlers with this blog. I see your point, though, about “Writers write…”, et al. In any case, I really enjoy your site and will stay posted whenever I can. All the best!
