Thanks Rachel so do you! :)
Enjoyed your blog post on "Rework"!
My shelfari account wasn't updating my goal count, so I think I deleted it... I'd like to know how many books I've read this year (not that it's anywhere NEAR 50!). You're a monster!
You have a blog? Where at?
I loved this book!I'm a big believer of how 37signals release their products and their general way of running a business.Let me know what you think
Yeaaaaaaaaaaaah Hunger Games! :)
practicing up your newspeak?
I did like it, although I felt like he was pretty ADD while writing it. He kinda jumps all over the place. The only story that I really felt anything for was for the young couple (can't remember their names right now). Maybe that's because I couldn't really see myself in any of the other characters shoes and felt that there were so many other options for them.
I enjoyed it. Although it's completely obvious that he HATES LA and everyone in it haha.It would make it more enjoyable to read if he started to employ some punctuation in his work. Small gripe, but it does bother me.
I am. It's a depressing look into other peoples lives haha
This guy really has a hate on for LA haha. He's very obviously from NYC
I wrote RL Stine a letter when I was in 8th grade and I was delighted to get a letter in return. After rereading the letter many years later; however, I realized it was a form letter. I'm glad I didn't realize that when I was 13.
oops. double post! How do I get rid of it?!?! Ahhhhhhhhhhh
Haha yeah there is. I have the "Bro Code", but I haven't read/got the "Playbook" yet which i hear is an entertaining read.
If you found Still Alice interesting, you might be intrigued by The Bird House (Simon & Schuster) which the Library Journal called “a great title for book clubs, and especially fans of Lisa Genova’s Still Alice.” Thanks so much – happy to connect on Shelfari if you’re up for it.Kelly Simmons
lol @ RL Stine. I adored those books back in the day.
The Rule of Four has been ordered. I will hold you personally responsible if it sucks, haha.
Thanks for the recommendation. It sounds like a pretty interesting book. I'll have to see if I can pick it up for my Kindle :)
