    Oh well done Tree LOL
    I see you figured out that highlighting thing. Good, innit!
    I have several of the books that you’re missing, but they’re mostly on my Permanant collection list. That said, you’d be welcome to borrow them. Fancy having a go at Perfume (brilliant book) and Hitchiker’s guide?
