You on the Sudbury list realize, but the other two lists didn't until
this message from me, that I just received a list of books from Albert
Lamb. I have just added them to the list.

But my question is: Is there a particular format that they should be
in? Author, title... or as I started the list, title, author, date...

I expect some of you writers know which is the "correct" way and are
irritated when you see the list formatted "incorrectly." Tell me how to
do it and I will pick the format that I like(from I assume will be more
than one opinion) and away we go. Eventually I suppose I will have to
figure out how to order the list one way or another but that is low
priority, on my list of priorities, because it is so easy to find an
author or title or whatever by using the Word Find tool. Dale

Thanks for all the suggested books Albert, and the comments. Dale
