If you can send them in email, couldn't just post the list here? I'm sure there are people who'd be interested who don't want to expose their email addresses to spambots and such.

Floyd, You have a good idea here. I might follow your advice later but let's see what response I get with this first.

Why don't you make your email address public then rather than expect others to?

 I would prefer what Floyd said.  Either that or the original poster, Beckers, should give his email address and then people interested can email him.  I would be interested in the titles as well.

Having had my seafaring son home from Florida over the holidays meant that the computer was busy 24/7.

Coming back to the site after over a month it seems to have grown.

Well done Floyd

We should all try and support you as much as we can. I have bought books through this site and find it excellent.

For example:The BBA bought from Amazon (directed by site) cost 30 + dollars including postage.  this cost 16.70 pounds on my UK credit card.  It arrived in 8 days over the Xmas period.

Amazon UK quote 27 pounds for same thing.  BUY WITH FLOYD..
