Hi Trotter -

From the movie "Field of Dreams": If you build it, they will come. It doesn't matter whether anyone here thinks that a diary website would be useful or not. (Even though I think it would be of interest to me. But more on that following.) If you have fun with it, learn anything from it, meet any people with common interests, then you have three good reasons to build it. I built my Compleat Gyde to Tolkien Calendars website for those reasons, and I have not ever regretted it. Although many fellow collectors have asked that I add the diaries to my calendar website. I have not been very much interested in them - no insult to your interest intended as I do have several of them. But I have not actively pursued them as I have the calendars. You might consider expanding your "world" a bit and collect the diaries from "all over". I know of US and Italian issues (and, I think, a Polish one??) I say go for it. Good luck and have fun!
