Tell me about 'The Gentleman's Daughter' on your shelf. It's an interesting subject but could lend itself to dryness as well. Does it flow?
I noticed you added one of my all time favorites to your shelf - 'The Hiding Place.' Did you love Corrie and her family? I visited her home in Holland last year. An amazing experience!
Hi! I just wanted to say welcome and thanks for joining The Jane Austen Book Club! Please make yourself at home in the group! We are currently putting in our nominations for a group read so I hope you will join us and add yours! Also, if you have an interest in British culture, literature, traditions, etc. please visit my other group called Across the pond.
Hi! I just wanted to stop by and invite you to check out my new group called The Jane Austen Book Club! It's a great group full of great Shelfarians who love to engage on all things Austen! We would love to have you join us there!
Thanks! My husband and I are currently cleaning out our garage for the first time since we moved two years ago and we are unearthing several boxes of books. It's so much fun to see a book I'd forgotten about and really enjoyed. I am trying to get them all logged into Shelfari. I find I'm keeping more than I am donating to the library because I can't bear to part with them. They really are like old friends!
Peace GentleJourneyAuthor. Hearing that a person has been touched by "a gentle gladness" by just being myself, it really means a lot more to be a professed religious. I am glad for you too. When events in life go rough, I do remember Jesus who has trodden the same road. Yet He is not of the past alone. He makes himself present to my "present" and leads me to the future with confidence. You've got a lot in your shelf. I'll find time to browse them. Enjoy your reading moments.
Well, now you have a face, such as it is, to go with the name ;-) I'm glad you joined us. Although I keep telling people that Shout Life is better. Of course Shelfari explores what people are reading, that's a plus. If they'd just make navigation a little easier.
If you had accepted my invitation, I was going to suggest you look through my books. I figured, as many as we already had in common, there must be more. Besides, with you being a retired English teacher, I knew your bookshelves were only starting to grow. I still haven't gone through my own books that I own. The ones shown as "own" here are mostly my husband's. Well, I'll talk to you later, new friend!
