Message from Our President The book raffle is fun and can provide our Roundtable with some extra funds but mostly it's a good opportunity to get some good reading at the right price. This month's prize is the "unrevised proof" of the book "The Last Full Measure" by Jeff Shaara, author of "Gods and Generals," which spent 13 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. "Unrevised proof" indicates there can be some differences between this proof and the final published books meaning it may very well be unique. Those of you who are close readers can find the differences! This particular book is signed by the author and should be a fine addition to and a keeper for any library. Take a chance for a dollar and enjoy the risk and, hopefully, the book. Troy
