Hi Matt, I can't believe it was TWO YEARS since i posted a note to you on here, where does the time go. I am still in Egypt and as you will have seen on the news we have had many troubles here in the past 2 years, but that is no reason for me not to be in contact. I honestly forgot about Shelfari, but in the past few months I have been reading so many different books, the other day I remembered and updated my shelves. We are still having unbelievably hot weather, yes hot even for Egypt, temps of 120F and this started about April, this is usually august weather, it has not let up and is much too hot to do very much, most of us who live here do not venture out in the days, having said that it is now just after 3pm and I have just come in, first time I have really been out in over a week, I just stay home and melt.... hope this finds you well and still reading.. Best wishes, Yas
Hi, Matt M! I just came to your shelf through "Party of One" and now will "follow" you (I guess - don't really get technology but I hope that is what we are supposed to do on here) because you do have a huge selection of non-fiction and I'm trying to increase my reading there. I think I'm going to get "The Art of Non-Conformity," based on your recommendation. Happy Holidays! - Vanessa
That's really interesting actually. At my high school, there wasn't meth use, and I don't think it was prevalent at all in my area. But I really liked the way Reding layed out the conundrum facing these towns: meth was destroying everything, yet it gave blue-collar workers the skills so integral to the "American worker." I have not watched that show, but I may have to check it out.
I also see that you recently read 1984....one of my all-time favorites.
Oh I think curious George was the first book alot of us read first.
Thanks Matt and might I add you are very handsome, a good looker huh? Nice to meet you. Stay in touch
Hi matt, thanks for adding me as a friend. Did you like the poem?
I love you to the moon
I love you to the end of the planets.
I love you till there's no love in the equator
I love you knowing nothing could be greater
I will love you from now until decades later.
Let me love you now not later
Let me love you to
Without worries, fears or cares.
Allow me to love you
Until you care
Open up-heal from old wounds
that you start to share.
Our love is genuine-it can't compare.
Now your love has opened
Like a brand new gift on Christmas
See what happens when you allow
Someone to love you.

I loved it.
Now's the time for you Matt.
Also, be sure to read Linchpin by Seth Godin. The world is ready and waiting to reward those who don't conform. In Linchpin, Seth would argue, to conform and simply become a cog in the machine, you're only setting yourself up to be a) out of work b) replaced by a computer or c) dispensable
Choose to be indispensable.
Good luck! If you're on twitter, we can connect there @noahfleming
No problem Matt. I don't know if you listen to rap music but I've just joined the Tupac Shakur University group. He was a very interesting dude. I'm hoping we can get the group to grow and discuss his life as an activist. You should join if you like discussions. All is well on this end, hope your the same.
Free shipping? You must be buying a lot of books at one time. I usually buy one at a time and most of those come from flea markets. Sometimes, I order one off of E bay or Amazon.
No, I understand that people's taste varies. I like historical fiction but read a lot of books written by women about women since I enjoy writing as well. One can't write if they do not read.
Hey, don't worry about what others think. Just munch done on whatever and get that brain full of knowledge. I have this thing that we take our knowledge with us to the afterlife. ha ha...well, King Tut thought he could take his possessions. ha ha
Hey Matt, thankx for the accept. To be honest I took a few books from your shelf. I'll be hitting the book store soon to buy in bulk. But you said you liked Robert Greene so I looked deeper. I already dusted off two of his books. If you have any on my wish list that are a must read, plz let me know. I'll dust those off first. Later
Thanks for your note. Good to meet you.
