Insecure? Why? Only a few more and you are at 100! And plus, you have a bunch of the early bindings. And at least one of every regular binding. And most importantly a copy of Pickwick Papers and a copy of Tess.

Hesitate? Why? You now have Bill, me, and probably countless others reading Wells along with you.

I am surprised how really good most of these books are.
Bill: Thanks for sending along the Wells blurb.
