  2. In anticipation of eye surgery, I received the audiobook version of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It has five readers and I'm anxious to listen to it, but I must wait.

  36. Congrats on your success with so many fine books from publishers.

    Dead End Gene Pool is on my list and Homemade Life is now of interest.

    Last year I toured the Doris Duke estate on Oahu and now would enjoy a glimpse into the Vanderbilt family.

    Take care and good luck with my book raffle.

    Best Wishes,

    Rob
