    My husband, Peter Wood, subscribes to your World War II magazine. He shared the article, A few Square Inches of Home with me since I work for the Maine State library. This is a great article to share with our statewide libraries, particularly since many senior patrons have a huge interest in World War II. A timing article as books go digital and people are now carrying around some eReaders to have their books always with them and seniors love being able to increase the font so they can still read.

    Would it be possible to have a link to this article that I could share with our library community listserv and on our news?
