With New York Friends ~ Books

An interesting comment made about books: America doesn't have a national literary culture. About the only book that we have in common is the Bible and we use it as the key to all literature, art, to living. It is the book that offers us vision of the whole.

It is a shame AARP decided to make it impossible to reply to your great articles "First Love" and "Days Passing By". But it was their decision to shut down the site and force us to go to the new site which is called BETA. I have found it is necessary to register again but then it is necessary to become a group member before it is possible to reply to a topic listed in the group. I am very anxious to see whether my comment will reach you and if it will be possible for me to see any reply from you. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you may be wondering why there were no replies to your two fine messages. But AARP has decided to take drastic measures to close that wonderful old site. Hope to hear from you. My old ID was Miltyq and I closed my messages by signing off as HTee.

It's funny, tho' --I've never been in a bookshop--with either new or used stock--or in a library anywhere in this land, that wasn't absolutely filled with people! It is a great solace to me, as I am ever fearful that writers (and readers!) will place too much importance/longevity in the internet. Should all the lights go out, we should have tangible books at hand near the candles.
