that's great. it's amazing how the group has grown in just a few years. my stamping buddy found an ad for it in a card magazine 5ish years ago. one woman~Sandy~ started it and still runs it. it was a small group until she started a facebook page and then it exploded~if you're on facebook check out the page. there's always something going on people posting cards and stuff. there's also weekly challenges and stuff.
jaret~I see you have cardmaking books on your shelf~are you a cardmaker too?
rubber stamping and card making is right up there with reading for me
I make cards for a group called Operation Write Home that sends them to deployed service people to use for writing home and I make them to sell at fundraisers for my cat rescue group~~sometimes I even have the time to make them for my own use :)
Welcome to Books 4 Cooks, RM... I am so excited to see you here!
Please, when you have a spare moment, take time to introduce yourself to the group.
I'm hoping this will be an active & lively group. I'm in the process of thinking about games, challenges & swaps and will keep the group posted w/ any/all updates!
Thank-you for joining us!
Hi Jaret.Sorry to hear about your family loss.Nothing anyone can say can do much to soften things,but we do get and give some comfort from our family.So sorry
I am here to give you advance notice that I am starting a group.Yeah,after three years lol.I am tired of all the authors spamming shelfari,and the way everyone is mostly just posting booklists over multiple groups.So I am setting up a nostalgia group really,just a little group who will be adding and discussing their favourite books from any genre.So far on the tiny shelf are Heidi,Green Eggs and Ham,And Then There were None,Ballet Shoes,Little WomenBut I will be posting a variety of genres,and hope members will add their own favourites.What I want are enthusiastic people who really want to share their beloved favourites with friends.No pressure,or Books of the Month,just reminiscing about books.A few quizzes,The Book Chain(as cribbed from Booknabbers),Dusty pontificating about literature genres,a few chats about our lives.I hope it will be fun! The group will intentionally be small,probably no more than a dozen members,and private.I hate the way people join groups and never appear again! Are they lurking? Did they find it disappointing or boring? Who knows,since they never speak out lol!I am handpicking people who will participate at least occasionally.
I am very busy setting things up,but invites will appear beginning of August.I do hope you will accept the invite!
Hi How are you? This week I am doing my big book give away, offer ends tomorrow. Book value over £30 - over $US40.. FREE DOWNLOAD FROM MY WEBSITE... if you like, or pls feel free to share it.. Thank You :)
Okay, thanks. Much appreciated. I hope you like reading Smoking on Mount Rushmore. I'm not as used to using Shelfari as I am at Goodreads. I like the bookshelf concept here at Shelfari. I guess that is why it's called that. Feel free to mark my novels if you enjoy reading that longer format.
