Re: our website
- What a welcome idea this exchange is! I didn't know about it earlier when I
wrote a rather long (and admittedly pithy) letter to our new MBA president
remarking on the sense of unease I had after reading the previous newsletter
and the implied cattiness among the news reports of Conclaves, etc. Then --
this latest newsletter arrived. What a welcome difference! In its pages I was
fortunate enough to find the web address to this excahnge, and now I have
renewed interest in the whole magical enterprise of miniature books. It has
been more than a little gratifying to see the remarkable improvement in quality
and tone of everything MBA. The note from Pat Baldwin was especially welcome
and the reference to selling our books on the web. If I may, I'd like to add
that if there are any authors or publishers out there willing to autograph
their progeny for buyers on the web, I have a most successful enterprise (no
cost involved) that may interest them. (Forgive a brief commercial.) I've
been an MBA member for at least 20 years, and I consider this latest
development (newsletter, new slate of officers, etc.) most welcome, including
the Vermont site for our next Conclave. Cheers!
