      From the list administrator:

      Just for a review: "This list is open to discussion of any topic related to
      the Mythopoeic Society, either of Mythopoeic works and authors, or of
      business related to the Mythopoeic Society." List content was
      discussed and approved by the Stewards, of which I am one.

      Therefore, book discussions are welcome on the list.

      As for list volume, the difficulty here is not a list with too much
      traffic, but too little. When this list has no traffic for one week, as
      happened last week, there is a flurry of people unsubscribing to the list.
      In managing other lists, I find complaints of too little traffic
      outnumbering complaints of too much traffic by about 20 to 1.

      Also, those simply reading the list vastly outnumber those who post
      to the list. Because of that, I would not anticipate this list becoming a
      high-traffic list anytime in the near future, and would therefore encourage
      ideas which might increase the number of on-topic posts, not to make this
      a high-traffic list, but to avoid people unsubscribing because days or
      weeks pass with no posts.

      Thank you for your patience and understanding.
      List Administrator
