THE INSTA-DAUGHTER IS READING the All of a Kind Family books, and she just finished Madeline L'Engle's Meet the Austins. Like the Henry Reed books I mentioned earlier, some of these are available new, and some are only available used. It's been very cool, though, to be able to get these things used over the Internet, something that wasn't possible until recently. I always hated ordering books via bookstores. She, of course, takes it for granted that any book she might want is readily available -- and cheap -- via the Internet. Why wouldn't it be?
