Hello all,

Isn't the world wide web great, lots of research materials accessable
almost instantly? Too bad Amazon and other web vendors acn't match the
local bookstores ability to put the book in my hand instantly, as
happened today at the Tacoma Book Center (great place for used books,
with a resonable section of Art and Ceramics books from time to time).
That's why they (Amazon et al) need your snail mail

I might use Amazon, but only after checking with my local booksellers.
You see, I like my money working in my local area before it leaves.
