Mark Hey John & Val:
Nice to hear from you guys! But I just have to express my astonishment at the amount of reading you do in a week (since the last time you posted)! I've known fast readers before, but you two take the grand prize. And I didn't realize you'd been lugging all those books around with you to Manila and Singapore....

Valerie There are libraries, even outside the US....Valerie

John Hey Mark! Actually, Val's comment notwithstanding, we do lug around lot of books, and apparently we're not alone; what we get to take overseas is determined by weight, and I've heard other folks at State gently mock the "culture people" for using their weight allowance on books. Of course, they use their shipment weight allowance on things we could never even imagine owning, let alone hauling around the world, so we're even.

We have hardly any weight allowance for the next trip, though. Val's looking into the Kindle.
