I'm looking at the request you submitted to change the name Joe Cieszynski to Dave Fox, and I'm confused. The cover images of the 2 books on the Joe Cieszynski author page show Joe Cieszynski as the author. There is already an author page for Dave Fox. It currently has no bio information because you added your bio info to Joe Cieszynski. Here is the link to the Dave Fox author page (sorry no live links in notes, you'll need to copy & paste): http://www.shelfari.com/authors/a1002532352/Dave-Fox/summary. Am I missing part of this story? Could you send me a note to clear this up? Thanks. Amber
hey thanks for the heads up about Vegas! Check out Snitch Jacket by Christopher Goffard, it's the most witty book I've read in a long time. I totally think you'll dig it, it's a "who did it" type of book...but no glamor, it's super seedy and dirty-kind of BarFly-ish. Enjoy if you get the chance!
Hey Dave, Hows things going? nice to meet you. I haven't read the book we have in common yet, but I totally plan to. I haven't traveled that much but now that my daughter is older and doesn't really want to hang out anymore, it's time for me to venture. I went to Comic-Con down in San Diego for the first time this July, I'm quite a nerd but a wild one, can you suggest a second good time place for a first time traveler with little money on the west coast?
Fellow Shelfari Friend,
i recommend strongly you read:: How Wal-Mart is Destroying America. See
what your conclusions are , and then share your thoughts top other consumers. Here are my thoughts...( note: I try to be a fair, siomple minded, common sense person at all times. This book has me a tad perturbed, to say the least
Here are my thoughts
Is anyone as Disgusted and Disturbed as I am after reading this book? I realize the author has a bit of a slant as he abhors WM, however it is downright scary.
Can this company be any worse for America?
Where do we start?
Importing tons of CHEAP product from overseas
Taking advantage of its workers
Beating its suppliers out of business for its own gain
Killing economies as they move into town.
Utilizing and taking advantage of government subsidies to get their "boxes" built.
So we all save 10 cents per box of popcorn or a gallon of cranberry juice.
This to me sums up how silly we the American people are. We are outsourcing America to death. Pretty soon there will be no jobs so we won t be able to shop anywhere.
Not to mention the service is awful.
We the public have the final say and we CHOOSE to shop where we want.
Will some peope read this and STILL shop there to save a few pennies?.. of course. however i think if most read this........ they ll choose to spend their dollars elsewhere.
Walmart is , in my opinion eating America up. We all need to wise up here. I don t know of a situation where monopolies are any good for the consumer. Do you??

Hi, Dave. I just noticed your post on the Seattleites Unite group and thought, "I know that guy!" I just put your book on my Amazon Wish List a couple of weeks ago. I want to say I saw it on Rick Steves' site, but maybe it was the Times. Anyway, good to see you on Shelfari.
Hey Dave - well, YOUR life looks interesting as do your writings! I used to watch Rick Steves' programs when I lived back in the old country... Now, as a licensed Israeli tour guide, I'm making my own "travel narratives" so to speak.
Just found a book that looks interesting and seems appropriate, if a little different, for this group: The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Couldn't find a way to post it, though - and didn't see a shelf for "want to read" on the group... Anyway, thought you could suggest it to the whole group and see if there's any interest.
Will read through the excerpts of your book as posted on your site and probably get it eventually - and looking forward to the next one as well. Why don't you come on over to Israel for a totally different view!
Dave, your books sound interesting! I love traveling, though mine has always been limited to Mexico and the Caribbean. And I love languages, too. I really must read some Dave Barry. He's a favorite of my brother. I'll visit your website.
I thought you might be interested in a contest. It’s wacky, creative and ‘killer’ fun. ‘Create a Corpse’ Contest lets you name a character in my suspense novel Divine Justice. Of course, you guessed it—the character dies
For contest details, just scroll over the following URL, copy and paste into your browser. This is a great contest for avid readers who’d like to be part of the process. I look forward to receiving your entries. :)
~Cheryl Kaye Tardif,
I’m touching base with all my Shelfari friends since it’s been so hectic lately and doesn’t seem like it’s going to slow down. I have just started my Fall/Winter Book Tour, after recently completing a 1-month virtual book tour (VBT) that was quite exciting. If you’d like to check out my VBT, please go to: http://www.whalesongbook.com/virtual-tour-2007.
If you are in the Edmonton area, or traveling to Edmonton, Alberta, between now and Christmas, please check out my book signing schedule. I would LOVE to meet some of my Shelfari friends in person.
And don’t forget, if you order any of my books (Whale Song makes an awesome gift for any woman or young girl in your life), please contact me and ask for a FREE autographed bookplate and bookmark.

P.S. Your book reminds me of a friend's book. Jim Soliski wrote Does Your Meter Work? and like yours, it explored the things that went wrong. lol
All the best with your books!
Thanks for joining my friends. Just spent a delightful break browsing your website.
Lewisham! That brings back memories as chief reporter for the South-East London Mercury in the late 60s. Old stomping grounds. Loved Lucy the Sheep, too!
When you've some beers to taste, with an iguana on the side, you may find a visit to my website worth the few days it will take :-))
Seriously, my travel journal in the Brazil section should be of interest. (The Journal at www.erroluys.com ). A different kind of roaming, not always as cheerful but at the core of a 20,000 mile trek to find the Brazilian "thing."
