Harry Potter Boxed Set -- Chamber of Secrets, Sorcerer's Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling ($55.85) "A great book and series, leaving you wanting more.  I'm 52 and am loving the Harry Potter story.  The whole "magical idea" and series is incredibly imaginative, creative, refreshing and fun to get lost in.  The only downside is I don't think this should be promoted as just a children's book.  It's such a pleasant escape from reality I think it should be listed as reading for ages 9-99.  I'm sending all three books to my mother for her 80th birthday."  (A Reader from San Francisco, California USA)

2000 Writer's Market : The Electronic Edition with CD-ROM by Kirsten C. Holm (Editor), Bill Brohaugh (Editor), Andrew Lucyszyn (Editor) ($49.99) Paperback "There's a reason the annual "Writer's Market" is many a writer's most cherished, and dog-eared, possession.  Where else--besides the prohibitively expensive "Literary Market Place"--can one find detailed listings for over 1,750 magazines, 1,150 book publishers, and 250 script buyers?  ...70 pages worth of contests and awards; 60 literary agents (and 20 script agents) who swear they're willing to work with new writers; 35 newspaper syndicates; and 35 greeting-card companies.  With so many prospective markets gathered between two covers, you're certain, find a loving home for your precious prose or poesy.  (Jane Steinberg, Editor of Amazon Delivers Books for Writers)  "Excellent!!!  I have used WM for many years now and have only recently discovered the usefulness of the electronic edition.   The CD is much easier to carry around than the book and I can access the market info from my desktop without having to flip through multiple pages."  (A Reader from Columbus, Ohio USA)

Work In Progress by Michael D. Eisner, Tony Schwartz ($27.95) "Great book about Disney during 1984-1998.  The book is well written.  I especially like the conflicts/problems that M.

Will Blythe, a contributing editor to Harper's and Mirabella and formerly the literary editor at Esquire, has assembled a fine cast of 26 contemporary fiction writers to muse on his assigned topic "Why I write." The reasons, boiled down, range from "Because I can't do anything else" to "Because I can't not write." Ho-hum. But these are fiction writers, don't forget, and fiction writers can spin yarns."
