Baja Books Links and lists.

A work in progress. I have run this by David K and have I agreed to coordinate his lists with others that are submitted for inclusion and will attempt to maintain it for the benefit of all Nomads.

This comprehensive list will be available on ‘Baja Looking Back’ for anyone to access. I will bring it up, about once a month, for General Discussion to remind folks that is available and so they can recommend additions was we move along.

I’ll start with the simple, that always works for me, links and then start to compile actual lists of books and authors. I will also include links to several book dealers who carry Baja books that some would wish to buy.

As we go along with this project it will be duplicated of David’s sight so that it will be available to more folks.

I'm sure guys and gals like Lera, Neal, dean miller, mextron, and many others will be interested in helping to make this a first class repository for the books we all love to read, trade, sell, or whatever.

One last thing,,,,,,,,,,should criticism be called for or necessary please be gently. (Neals) (Neals list) (Rockmans post) (more from Neal)

Okay so far this endeavor makes little sense but hopefully it will smooth out with a bit of elbow grease.

My smidgen of a claim to fame is that I have had so many really good friends. By Bernie Swaim December 2007

Newest combined book list

Keeping tabs on what has been donated, here is what I have as the most current list.

When we were last in El Rosario I talked with Antonio about these things. He is still as enthused as the rest of us. His concern is that the books don't grow legs and wander off into the wilds of Baja.

The custom built bookcase is a dandy.
