Cryptic message had something to do with a text like, five years ago. The walrus is a character in one of the books we're about to put out. He should go on sale Spring 2010. I just think he's so cute. He's sort of gloomy, but in a cute way. You can just hear him go "Humph" with those big lips flying and the enormous weight of him landing on that rock there. I love him!
Thanks so much for the friend invite! We definitely seem to have tried out many of the same books and sooo funny that we joined on the same day. Our Shelfari anniversary!! I'm enjoying purusing your shelf although I'll admit that I see some divergence in our tastes . . .Cold Mountain was a book I couldn't finish, which is so rare for me. So nice to "meet" you though :). I can really relate to the book addiction; I too buy way more than my share.
My 50 book Challenge. 51!
I just went through your shelf and noticed your book ratings.. I agree with you on a lot of them and have added a couple of your top-rated books to my TBR list. You are careful not to give out too many five-star ratings, so when you do, I pay attention. I love your bookshelf!
Wonderful to hear from you. My daughter is doing very well. She loves it and has adapted beautifully. I am so proud of her. She has been home twice, once was a total surprise! A friend of mine and I are going to see her next weekend. School...is wonderful. Love it. I have awesome students this year. I started a blog for my classes to talk with me about what they are reading. They seem to like it and are responding well. The only thing is that they tend to want to write in "teen text language" and it is too crazy to read. They are getting better at writing without the cute little symbols and such. You will have to check it out...http://fletcherreads.blogspot.com/
Hope to hear from you soon. How is your school year going? Anything exciting going on? What are you reading?
I have picked up Eat Pray Love...it is an awesome book. Typically not one I would pick up but am sure glad that I did. It is a book I can't wait to get back to.
talk to you soon
