THIS IS FOR STORING LISTS TYPED IN BUT STILL TO GO IN CATEGORIES...(ETC) NB THIS PAGE IS NOT LINKED TO FROM OTHER PAGES, SO CAN BE FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY.... First list below is stuff typed - roughly! - ages back, and some of which will be used for the so far unsorted categories; and some is of books that are still to be dug out and allocted/shelved ... so existing typing here can form the basis of that. Though where REMAINDER of the list came from - or at least where remainer of the books have gone to (because there seem more than can be accounted for by long-time stuff in cupboard awaiting sorting) - one wonders... Second list will be of old/classic (as opposed to recent-ish) stock which we no longer have, so there is somewhere to put details of the book if it's taken off the web after the last or only copy is sold. Even if replacement is unlikely, any blurb already written will be useful if it were ever to be available again, and the book details, having been compiled, will in some cases be useful for bibliographies/reference/whatever.
