Sojourner- Do you have all of Logsdon's books?
-- Elizabeth (email@example.com), August 26, 2001
Almost. I'm missing the new version of "Wildlife in the Garden" and "The Contrary Farmer's Invitation to Gardening". I think I have all the rest, including the collector's edition of his novel (novellete, really) "The Man Who Created Paradise".
I have a goodly number of books containing one or more essays by him as well, and am working on obtaining copies of his hundreds of magazine articles over the years. I expect that will take me QUITE some time, and I doubt I'll ever get close to finding them all.

I have an extra copy of the "Invitation to Gardening" book. I just read it for the first time. I had sort of avoided it for awhile because the title, which I think is misleading, made me think it was just a gardening book and I wasn't all that interested. When I finally sat down with it I was surprised- it is one of his better books. I raced through it but when I have some time I'm going to sit down and read it at a more leisurely pace. Anyway, I would like to send you my extra copy if you would like it. It's a brand new, never been read softcover edition. I haven't seen it in hardback- maybe you'd rather hold out for that for your collection? Whatever. If you want it let me know via email with your address and I'll send it to you. I really enjoy your writing and your enthusiasm and appreciate all the work you put in on the forums.

Well gee whiz, Elizabeth! I'd be happy to accept your spare copy. How'd you end up with a spare, btb? I sometimes end up with multiple copies of books because I forget I already have a title sometimes...
I'll e-mail my contact info separately. Thank you!
