The AA Grapevine is a must for me. I will soon celebrate my first AA birthday. When away from home, my best insurance is to take along copies of the Grapevine. Then, for added pleasure, I have tapes of some of our AA members. I treasure very highly a tape of Dr. Tiebout, a great friend of AA. My advice to any new member is to get the Grapevine.

The June issue, "Anniversary 30 issue," is wonderful. I read it from cover to cover before I could put it down. My shock was to read that only 76,000 or more copies circulated with a membership of 650,000. I had to go back and read that again before I could believe it.
