Hi Rachel! I like the look of your books. Tell me more about the Mary Queen of Scotland book-- looks like a might-read for me. just started figuring out this shelfari thing and it actually seems like a great thing, if for nothing else than remembering what I've read! a mind's a terrible thing to waste-- too bad less and less stays in it as you get older! Your friend, nancy in ny
Hey Rachel. I actually have not taken the time to figure this site out. My librarian/ acquaintance here sent it to me. But I just don't mess with the computer much so haven't figured out how to post what I am reading etc, but I was very very excited when I saw that I had a friend on here-YOU. Some day I will spend the time to figure this out. Today I did go in and see your book shelf. Someday. I just finished All the Pretty Horses. I had never read it. I read The Road last winter. I see it on our shelf. It was sooo good. I am betting you have read The Book Thief. That is another book I read last winter that I liked a lot. Actually there are a lot of books that I have not read that I am wanting to read. I am now reading David Foster Wallace. I am gong between a book of short stories and a book of essays etc. of his. He is another author that I had not read until recently.
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 here and join in the discussions on the books we are reading for the month (from the book) or you can argue the merits of the list as some enjoy doing. We hope you will want to join in our discussions. The current books are at the top of the list for that month. If there is any way I or Mossflower can answer your questions about the group or about Shelfari, let us know.
If you don’t own the book the list can be found 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/?page_id=160.
Here is a blurb about my new book—ON THE CREST. Comments welcome: Tige Anderson goes through a series of emotional, physical and psychological adventures in this coming-of-age roller coaster, balancing his life among his romantic trysts, his ambitions, his humanity and his gay best friend. The one thread that connects all of the people in his life is the fact that the cycle of life puts everyone through a series of ups (‘on the crest’) and downs. Whether an individual winds up on top of the wave or under it depends on them. Please let me know if you would like to read the prologue. Tony Carmine.
