    • In Search of Lost Timex - Marcel Proust (1 slim novella)   Young Marcel loses his timepiece at bedtime, but his mother doesn’t scold him, and gives him his nighttime kiss early, as usual.     Three Men in a Boa - Jerome K Jerome  Calamity and horror for the zoo keepers at the Reptile House.
    • I do feel as though the author chose the page order so that's what I went with. But when the author suggests an alternative reading - especially when coupled with signposts to guide you and a strong implication that the alternative reading is better - it takes some strength of character to resist.    I do remember an Ali Smith book (How To Be Both) that was basically two novellas and you were supposed toke able to read them in either order. And half the copies were printed with one novella first. and the other half with the other one first. Not that I could spot very much connection between the two halves.   
    • Thanks Luna and Meg! Dr Newton and the pack are still going strong! 
    • Really great to have you back with us, Nellie.  Thread in Board Business duly deleted
    • Nellie!  How good to see you again.  I hope that you remember me.    How are your robot dogs?
