You may have noticed that these are all non-fiction. Number 37 is the Bible an older brother was given by (?) during World War II. He volunteered for the Army in December 1941 and spent those years in Australia and the campaigns of New Guinea. He eventually retired from the Army after getting out a couple of times to try civilian life. He passed away in 1972 at age 58.

There's more to come, but I keep handy some reference books on writing, e.g., the Chicago Manual of Style, Guides to this and that, a Dictionary, a Thesaraus, Book of Quotations, computer info, etc. It sounds better when I put it it down on paper, but some I haven't had occasion to look at in some time. I've always been a good speller.

Most of them I picked up at swap marts or in used book stores, some by mail order, having to pay full price, some in regular bookstores, and were purchased in pursuit of family history and genealogy.
