Comments on the Collection

I now have all the flex titles published, but many are in S8 and later bindings. I only need the Fineman book to have all the MLs published through 1939!

Personal Comments

I've read close to 200 of the Modern Library books and only rated 18 "poor" and 32 "fair." That's a great percentage of good reading by my account. I am reading many of them in the order in which the ML published them. I have read my way through 1928 and have four left to go from 1929. Next up: Peter Whiffle by Carl Van Vechten. But I also read others outside the chron. And the next one outside the chron will be Traven's Treasure of Sierra Madre.
