I haven't read a single one of these books (and I may never read any -- so many books, so little time) but I am sending a link to your post to the director of the library in my teeny tiny town (900 souls). The few titles I looked for are none available in the 40+ library consortium catalog here in n.w. Wisconsin. I think I have found an underserved population. (So what else is new...)

Thanks for doing this!
