Meta-Pile #3 2013-2015 Draft Proposed COOS Book Review Schedule

16 Dec

As my latest Phile (“#4 Bibliographies and Blogs”) stated, I am preparing myself to re-enter the education process. At the same time, in order to meet my commitment to my Episcopal parish for book reviews, I created for myself (and for the editor of our newsletter) a three year schedule of reviews (A fourth, provisional year has also been drawn up, but not finalized), and since I am in the habit of sharing bibliographies, as a symptom of my biblilolunacy, I offer it to my readers, as a way to gauge my progress. (The fact that I intend to adapt these parish reviews for a Pile entry has nothing  everything to do with the sharing. 🙂 )

The following key will help make sense of my entries:  C for  a work from the parish library, P for a work from my personal collection,  L  for a work from the public (or other) library, B for a work borrowed from an individual
