I bet it was #s 1, 7 and 10, right?

I have read none from that list but did once buy a copy of HEART OF DARKNESS.

Fat Ollie Weeks's book was only 40 pages or so. Too bad that masterpiece remains unpublished.

You're right, Jeff. Collect your prize backstage.

I bought a copy of HEART OF DARKNESS, too, Gerard. THE SECRET SHARER was also in the volume, so it was a real bargain.

I had that book too, with both Conrad titles.

Of course, Bill probably still has his copy.

HEART OF DARKNESS and MISS LONELYHEARTS are the only ones I've read from this list. And very likely the only ones I ever will.

Four for me: Heart of Darkness, Miss Lonelyhearts, Ethan Frome, and Not to Disturb. I doubt I'll be getting around to the others, although I think I have Sleepless Nights around the house somewhere.

HEART OF DARKNESS is all I've read as well.
