merry Christmas to you...
I would do what Tony (...Russell I presume??) has suggested - I get stuck at
times myself too, especially with the honeyeaters being placed more forward
than i'm used to, which throws me off with the groups afterwards...
of course I know which volume the honeyeaters are in due to the spine
so why not just do a quick mock-up of family groups by hand to stick on your
shelf under each respective volume??
of course that wouldn't work for me as I lay them down on top of one another!!!
but all more books get well used with much wear & tear on the outside, but hey
I don't because the pages within are in pristine condition...
that's quite an achievement living beachfront in the Wet Tropics!!
