Books - Archive Mode On!

I mentioned the books I was purging, but I want to reiterate that I liked most of those authors. Some of them were fun reads, some had a little more substance, etc.

The books by the following authors I will keep - at least until I decide I should get rid of them all! Then it will be library books or e-books here on out!

Actually, some of these probably won't ever go away as they have my notes from high school or college in the margins. I've re-read some of them and it's interesting to see what I thought was important 20+ years ago. For some of the "fun" books,  I remember, during my youth, I would stay up until the wee hours of the morning to read just a few more pages.

      If you look here:
      For an example, the first Man-Kzin war started at 2367, and Louis Wu's (first) journey only started at 2850...
