Hey Michelle, Have you given up on Shelfari? There's another new group called The Challenged Reader and another that just started called Author, Author. They are quite good at getting people to read and spread their wings a bit. What is keeping you so busy: work, school? I hope that you are OK and not missing from here because of anything terrible. There was a lot of chat on the site and avatar changes for the Gators over the past few weeks - exciting times.
Hi Michelle, Happy New Year! What have you been up to?
Beach Reads is doing Knitting Club - that's why I asked! You are right on track and you didn't know it. :-)What do you think of it so far?
Hi Michelle, are you doing Beach Reads this month? I just got the book from the library and I will try to get to it. I'm also trying to get in a couple of books with the England tag for the Play Book Tag Group. In order to do that, I'm listening to an audio during my commute (too short) and have one fairly short but good book I've been wanting to read with the England tag. I've really started picking up on my reading so maybe I really can read three books in this month - we'll see!Let me know what you think about the Knitting Club.
She is majoring in Political Science with a double minor: Mass Communications and Business. Covering all the bases :)
Well I have to say hey to anyone who is from Gainesville. My daughter goes to UF and I love the area. Glad to accept your friendship - and I did really enjoy Chelsea's book.
Yes, I finished it too just a few days ago. I don't know that I would recommend it to tweens since there is quite a bit of drinking in it but I would definitely recommend it for high school, especially seniors and maybe juniors. I thought she did an excellent job of writing this story. It definitely took me back to my teen years. I even looked up my old high school to see if they had an alumni page. My high school years were not my favorite time and I definitely didn't run with "the crowd." DH and I are up at the Panhandle this week enjoying some time on the Gulf and hoping to do some kayaking. Walked along the surf (there isn't much) and had a big old crab come right up next to my foot. Since I didn't see him coming, he made me jump!Hope you have a lovely week too. :-)
Thank you! It's funny. Out of all the ones I've switched to, quite a few people have commented on this one. I wonder what it is about it?
I read Belinda many years ago and enjoyed it very much. It may not be everyones cup of tea as it is pretty R rated.
Well - damn good explanation on why you read In Her Shoes. LOL I posted a note to a friend and saw you on her friend list. Clicked on your pic (adorable by the way) - and read your profile. You seemed so busy I couldnt resist sending the note. Michele
Hi....and thanx for the befriending....But to answer your question, "I'm not!" A chick lit person....But what I'm, is a very loyal and faithful, and honest person....and it's funny really, how I got to read the book; and that was, believe it or not, Afriend of mine on shelfari....invite me to this woman's only group. She invited me, because she said, she had followed me around Shelfari, and have read the omments and discussings points that I made, and was interested in having my opinion.So, there you GO! The absolute about, How (Leon James Trueheart II, which is my real name) Got to read the book, "InHer Shoes!" But I guess, in all honest....and no, I may not be a Chick-Lit guy Passe' but what I am is a reader of books kinda guy....meaning....I will read anything that pricks my interests....So with all that said and done....How are things with you? And tell me, what did you find on myshelf, or what was so interesting me....that made you decide, to befriend me?JASS!
I just spoke to her, she would love to have a name, phone number and/or an email adress. She said her advisor at PBCC dont seem to be able to tell her what she needs to know. so if you wanna send it to me via private mail, that would be great!
he is an english major, guess he wont likely cross paths with you....but we do have a little friend, a 20 yr old girl who is working at the local publix pharmacy and wants so to be a pharmacist. are there any good scholarships to get her in? she is a smart pretty relatively new citizen, having come here from Cuba a few years ago. I think she is trying to get her basics at the local community college...
Welcome to Better than Starbucks! Look around, make yourself at home, start a new thread or dig up an old one or just read and jump in on the more active ones.Hey, Gville? are you a student? my son is a senior at UF this year!
i like your shirt.
This is definitely a memorable TS! Fay can't make up her mind where she's going and she's causing all kinds of confusion. Lake County schools closed for Tues and Wed, now the Sumter County schools added Thursday to the mix but we are just getting rain so that seemed silly. (I'm in Lake County but Sumter and Lake have a long border so we hear about both COs in our news.) We had a family reunion in New Smyrna Beach just a week and half ago and we had the best weather - whew! Did we ever miss the bullet - its a mess down there.I've got my copy of Bermudez Triangle but have some others to read before I get to it. I had responded to this mother who thought this was a love triangle so she didn't get far into the book. She'd really have been scandalized if she read more because there is a gay relationship in there and I can only imagine how that would have blown the top off this lady. Anyway, the powers-that-be accepted my explanation of why we have this book in the library (very good reviews) in the young adult area. She did not and sent another letter demanding that the "powers" respond to her; she cc'd everyone she could think of too. She feels that she has to protect ALL the children of the City, not just her own. I did get support from one of the people she wrote. I'm not sure of the others. Interesting that, as the Director of the Library, she never came directly to me - she wen't over my head. But then it falls back on me anyway, so there you go. OK - I've vented, sorry. I really do support the rights of parents but I also serve a huge variety of people so its a balancing act. Look at the diversity here! I'll read the book myself and see if the reviews were warranted but I trust that they are. However, I am reading this from a far distance of being "young adult" :-)
