You sent me scurrying to my shelves, Stephen. I not only own *Pi*, but I've read and enjoyed it more than I expected to. I read it when I was more or less team teaching with a couple of women who insisted that our classes read it. I didn't do much with it at the time (this was for an AP English Language class that was supposed to concentrate on non-fiction, taught in the 11th grade, which was supposed to concentrate on American lit), but I liked it. Sorry not to have real thoughts!
Stephen, we're having a spectacular fall. Behind the Japanese maple is a young, slender sugar maple that is becoming a dazzling yellow. Fall is grand, but November itself is suddenly a little weepy and dank. A good time to read!
Greetings to Lisa and her mom!
Glad you're still having fun here.
Hi, Stephen.
I'm wondering whether you ever have time to come back here these days. I talked to Catharin a long time last night, and that reminded me that I had neither heard from you nor tried to be in touch with you.
Hope you and your family are well and that you're getting a lot of good reading in!
Stephen, I had to go back to my blog to read the review you were mentioning since I think I blocked that book from my consciousness completely. It's not a good thing when a book makes you that angry, right? Nowadays I don't think I'd bother getting past page 10, but then again, as I recall, it had that same quality as a horrible traffic accident that you just can't help yourself from staring at.

I was perplexed by The Master and Margarita, and it made me feel unintelligent for somehow not *getting* all of it, but bits of it did amuse me, so I wouldn't put the two books in the same category. I'd say probably Lévy's book is lowbrow trash, and TMaM is highbrow... nonsense, let's call it that. lol :-)

Thanks so much for taking an interest in my library and my blog. I used to be quite obsessive about feeding that blog, but this 75ers group now gobbles much of my time so I just post there sporadically. Still, there's plenty of material I've accumulated there since 2007!

Hope you've been having a great weekend!

Hi Stephen, thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries, always an honour.

I see you've joined us just recently so welcome to LT and the 75ers!

Stephen, you are very, very smart!!! Lizzie from Lizzie Hexam and D for Dickens is exactly right. I was in another readers' community in the late 90s that used authors' last names for user names. It gets complicated, but I ended up being LizzieD Sayers when I became the editor of the mystery group there. I read lots of mysteries at the time!
Many thanks for the recommendation of The Loved One. I will look for it!
I assume that you are also looking at The Green Dragon and FantasyFans. I didn't join either, but I find plenty of folks at 75 who read fantasy.
AND the Fionavar first book is the only GG Kaye that has left me cold. I will try to read the other two someday, but right now there's just too much else!
And I think that Clersius is a great name!
thing = think Why did I do that???

I think that this is the clearest and most complete helps thread around!

Have fun!!!
I meant to ask you the meaning of Clersius. Also to say that if you don't know Pamela Freeman, an Australian fantasy novelist, you should remedy that lack as soon as possible. I just finished her *Castings* trilogy that begins with Blood Ties. Good, solid stuff!
Hope all is well in W'ton!
Welcome to LT, Clersius! I'm honored to own the first library that you have found interesting. How did you find me? I see that we share some good books and that you are something of an eclectic reader. Come speak to me!
