Hi! We share some of the same book interests! I have just joined Shelfari! I am always looking for a new friend who loves books! My name is Larry Montello, and I live in Marshall, Minnesota. I just moved back here about ten months ago from Arizona! I was born in Montclair, New Jersey. My ethnic heritage is Italian, Scot, Irish, German, Canadian, and God knows what else. I have eight children, all from my marriage to Dawn, that ended over six years ago. Only three of my children live in Minnesota at the present time, (a couple of hours away from here),, but I talk to all of them frequently on the phone and they often visit. In my life I have lived in 14 different US states and traveled in 48. I have also traveled quite a lot in Canada, and some in Mexico. No where else YET! In the past I have been, among other things, a school teacher, small business owner, manager, waiter, hospital technician, salesman, and delivery driver. Now I have an overnight job at Walmart, but who knows how long that will last! I have always been a inquisitive and curious person, which explains my university degrees. They are in geography, history, political science and English Literature. I primarily went to universities to LEARN things not just to pursue career or financial goals. Oh well! Probably does not make much sense to a lot of people. I have a wide variety of interests and hobbies. Among my interests are: history, geography, cultures, music, literature, art, science, railroads, nature and wildlife. Among my hobbies are: reading, listening to music, watching movies, taking care of my pets, collecting stamps, postcards, books, sports memorabilia, and maps. I love animals and have quite a number, including: a dog, (Jack), two cats,(Lilly and Siggy), three cockateils, a tortoises, and eight water turtles. Hopefully your new friend, Larry

Hi there! Thanks for the recommendations! Now that you mention it, I have read Prodigal Summer & did enjoy it. I had forgotten! Thanks also for the other title. I will check that out.; it does sound vaguely familiar. And yes, you should read Poisonwood Bible if you want an unforgettable novel. Enjoy!
Sorry that wasn't the book you were looking for! I'm going to check out your shelves later, when I have more time -- looking forward to it, although this place is dangerous-- I have a 3 page wish list already!!!
My mom lives in Jacksonville, FL, so I've spent a lot of time there. We are planning on taking a leisurely trip through the keys in a few years when our kids are a bit older (they are 6 and 3 right now). i can't wait!
