Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number included.
This feature is published Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the late afternoon New York time. For early morning review of headlines see "The Early Bird" published Monday through Fridayin the early am at GEI News (membership not required for access to "The Early Bird".).
