That must be a classical definition of "mixed emotions" David. "Golly, ma'am, you're giving them away (snicker,  giggle). Thank you."  But she had the right attitude about books: they're only useful if someone is going to read them.

Recently gave a teen-aged niece (who does read history) my precious complete set of Will and Ariel Durant's ponderous tomes. As well as another box of assorted, nonCW, history books. Although it was like giving away a much adored molar, I wasn't reading them and would likely never get around to reading them; they now have a home wherein someone might get some use from them.

Booklover: I'll get back to you on Welles' Diaries.
