Welcome to 1001 books. You can keep track of the books you have read from the book, 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, join in the discussions on the books we are reading for the month (BOTM) or you can debate the merits of the list as some enjoy doing. We hope you will want to join in the choosing of BOTM and the discussions. The current books are pinned to the top for that month. There are older discussions that can be found by searching discussions. If there is any way the group administrator can help further feel free to ask one of us. If you don’t own the book the list can be found at the top in the group description or at http://www.listology.com/content_show.cfm?content_id=22845. A downloadable list of the second edition is available at http://johnandsheena.co.uk/books/?
I would, indeed, like to join the Friendship group! I've not really been taking full advantage of this site, trying to cope with aging parents who aren't doing very well that live in Idaho and the things that I have to do here. I will look things over a bit more later this afternoon. Thanks for the invite! I did find some spirituality groups that sounded interesting, but haven't jumped in on those yet, either. Will do...
Thank you for your kind words and willingness to listen with an open heart.
I believe that it is vital that children as well as adults learn that nature is what creates life.
Without supporting our knowledge of this then people just do not understand and live as if nature is a commodity - utilising it, polluting it and worst of all not respecting its beauty.
As with anything, if nature is not safeguarded it will die.
This inevitably means death for all life forms.
I believe that today, more than ever before, it is important to partake in whatever helps to support mother nature.
Voluntary programmes are important. Supporting organisations such as the World Wildlife Fund and those who emphasise the preservation of the rainforest, and other beautiful and uniques aspects of nature, are vital.
It is also vital to emphasise to politicians and business people the importance of taking nature into account rather than just economic growth.
All this is only achieved when these issues becomes important for everyone.
One problem is that in most third world countries people are focusing on economic growth due to many problems that they are facing and nature has been forgotten. This inevitably leads to more suffering and pain as pollution and other destructions enter these pristine and vital ecosystems and landscapes.
If you click on this link you will discover a rainforest project in Costa Rica that is dear to my heart. The rainforests of the world truly need our support at this time. Thank you for your consideration.
Hey chris thanks for the invite, what a cool web site im going to check out some of the books youve read and see if i cant find them at the library. I put down some of the ones ive enjoyed in the past on my book shelf. ps got your card and is always nice to hear from you-all. My favorite card this year was from the folks we traded for our house with, they sent us three pictures one of freshly harvested carrotts, one of their green house, and finally a picture of rodderick in his sea kayack with the mountains reflecting back on the water, (might as well of been floatin with god).
