Greetings. Holy moly this week's list of interesting titles is a big list! I have an explanation for that. The list contains so many goodies. At this time of year when I have a lot of stuff to do I really enjoy window shopping online for hours instead of getting anything done. I can't be alone in that can I? So there you are. You have this huge list to enjoy as well as Noah's Holiday Picks. Not to mention all the lovely titles displayed in this very newsletter.
So we are busy gremlins. We are busy as a direct result of your good taste so you have our appreciation for that to be sure. As we are in the holiday home stretch we cannot guarantee anything arriving in time. We do guarantee we will try our best and there are always alternatives if we are out of something. You know, gift certificates that never expire and whatnot. We can send pdfs as well as hard copies of these. Ok, enough persuasion from the bookseller. 

This has been a tough year for so many people. We at Caversham have been extraordinarily lucky and this is not lost on us. All five of us are healthy and safe as are all living alumni. We have isolated meticulously but that was only made possible, in terms of our mental health, because we got to socialize a bit with many of you. A lovely loophole of retail. Whether it was an email, a curbside pickup, or a phone call, you humans being humans saved the day many times over. We are obviously all in this together but, as it turns out, we are spoiled and lucky gremlins. Gremlins who give heartfelt thanks and wish the best for all of you. Stay safe please.

-Newsletter Neil
