It's an engaging, old-fashioned picture. A retired teacher putters among his beloved books. A lifelong collector--beginning with Dowden's two-volume "Life of Shelley" in "sumptuous inlaid morocco by Rivier" that cost more than a month's salary--Jack Hodges contemplates a personal encyclopedia, a "treasury" if you will. What goes with what? Who with whom?

MICHAEL SHAW, Diamond Bar From now on when I want to hear trash-talking Bruins, I'll just enter Bruin Zone on the Internet instead of paying for it courtesy of Bill Plaschke. JACK HODGES, Santa Monica One thing you can say about Plaschke, his writing has a consistent theme. He has the unhappy faculty of alienating more readers than any [other] writer is capable of doing. If the Pulitzer Prize were given for that peculiar talent, he would win it, hands down.
