Hi to all!

I just want to alert everyone that we have submitted the Fall Quarterly Report. It is attached. Feel free to take a look at it.  Good job to all this fall!  Alexa and I have appreciated all of your suggestions for addition and deletion on our Fall booklists.  Remember that the more you all input, the easier our job is on the editing side before we submit.   :)   We anticipate the next booklist assignment soon -- so stay on the lookout for it.

Have a Happy Holiday Season!
