Gregory Drew was looking for the International Paper series some time
ago. I tried to send to his e-mail address, but it bounced. Hence this
message. If anyone knows how to pass this along to him, I'd appreciate

If anyone else wants copies of this series, let me know. If I get a
lot of requests, I might need to ask for copying and postage costs,
though I'm willing to float a few no charge.



I apologize for my rather long delay in getting back to you, but I
have the entire set (I think) and would be happy to send them to you.

What I've got are the How to:
... improve your vocabulary, by Tony Randall
... read faster, by Bill Cosby
... write with style, by Kurt Vonnegut
... use a library, by James A. Michener
... enjoy the classics, by Steve Allen
... read an annual report, by Jane Bryant Quinn
... make a speech, by George Plimpton
... enjoy poetry, by James Dickey
... encourage your child to read, by Erma Bombeck
... read a newspaper, by Walter Cronkite
... write clearly, by Edward T. Thompson
... write a business letter, by Malcolm Forbes (I particularly liked
this one as a teaching tool)
... spell, by John Irving
... punctuate, by Russell Baker
... write a resume, by Jerrold G. Simon

If you're still looking for them, let me know. I should be able to get
them out to you some time next week (after Thanksgiving).
