        I was recently looking for a source to point people to for Smith of Wootton
        Major, and it doesn't seem to be in anything that's currently being
        published; does anyone know if it's available in something I've missed?
        Lots of used copies available, though, of the paperback with Farmer Giles.
        I recently bought a used copy of Mr. Bliss. I hadn't read it for 20 years
        or so and had forgotten how hysterically funny it is (or maybe I just picked
        up more of the humor this time around; definitely one of those books for
        children that has plenty in it for grown-ups, too).

        ----------

        I figured this was the best place to ask a question about the upcoming
        Reader's Guide/Chronology. The write-up on the Houghton Mifflin website
        reads as if each volume is 800 pages, for a total of 1600. Is that right,
        or is 800 pages the total for the two volumes together? Not that it would
        make any difference to whether I buy it or not--just wondering how big of a
        package to expect. 8-)

        (I just realized that I've missed reading several of the latest digests. If
        that question's been asked already, I apologize for my lack of attention.)
