Dear all,

below find -- maybe with one or two omissions which may have slipped
-- the list of additions to the Temporary Newton Library
http://www.stillnewt.org/library for the first two quarters of 2005
since it was established). What can I say -- it's a great collection of
stuff, from the informative to the entertaining, from the weird and
to the live-saving, from vintage to hot-off-the-press. All strictly
domain or Creative Commons- or otherwise licensed. Pure gold, brilliant
for reading.

I'm very glad about the good reception this offering gets among my
bookish Newtonians, and even more, I'm glad about every addition that is
submitted to the library (submission guideline here
http://www.stillnewt.org/library/Submission%20Guideline.txt). Thanks,
and thanks especially to Marty in Seattle for hosting us!

So, while you listen to the waves of this-community-is-fading-away
breaking in your mailbox, grab a drink, install a book, and have a good
time, courtesy of Project Gutenberg and Creative Commons and the shine
of our green backlights!
