Dejah I hope to see you posting again in 2014. Send me a message if you join up any of the 2014 groups. You have been missed.
Dejah, I reserved Washed Away, the book about the 1913 flood, at the library because someone had checked it out. Well, I got a note (already!!) that it's in. I'll pick it up on Monday.

I've added it to TIOLI under the challenge about titles with water (#13, I think).
I hope you like the Halifax explosion book. It involves one of those little known disasters that I like to read about.

I saw something the other day about the Great Flood of 1913 and that someone wrote a book about it. (On the Weather Channel, I think)

I thought: What Great Flood of 1913? I need to look into that one.
Dejah, read Dragon next, then Teckla!

Aw!

(Just stumbled across this picture really, but this is lovely. If only I hadn't somehow developed a bad allergy to cats! So now I only have a dog, they're wonderful creatures too, of course, but...)
Hi, DT

I'm trying to find a place for the book I'm reading now "Getting Away is Deadly" and see the word DEAD in the cloud of words for your challenge. Would Deadly count too? I have been trying to catch the Washington Challenge but always seem to miss the chance for G.

Well Dejah, at first I wouldn't consider a plain ole park a vacation structure but then again, I thought about huge amusement parks like Disney and Kings Island etc they have structures and people have been known to vacation there so yes, I'll accept Park. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, once I post to the wiki I don't return often enough to see what's being added. Spose I should look more often in the future.
Thanks, Dejah, I'm on my way to TIOLI land now! :)
I'm going with Relic because someone else recommended A Year in Provence which I think would be too much like On Mexican Time and I have a few mysteries already so will skip the Cleverly this time. Thanks!
Hi, Dejah,

How are things with you? Hope everything's OK.

Humouress
D_T,
Did you mean your TIOLI posting for the May Challenges because you posted it in April.
:-O)
TIOLI is up!!
I thoroughly enjoyed it! Most of the visuals fit my mental image of Barsoom (landscape, fliers and, for the most part, characters). Dejah Thoris was better than John Carter (a tad too moody for my taste) and the Tharks too thin. The plot followed the first book but with elements of 'Gods' and 'Warlord' added. Reviews criticizing the Old West scenes at the beginning of the film, favorable comments about the woola (from context referred to as the breed's name) rather than Woola the calot, and references to the green Barsoomians as Tharks seemingly without the realization that Tharks are but one tribe of greens make me think the reviewers had not actually read 'Princess'. Odd as it has been out for one hundred years!
Yeah, I missed your question. I'm going to change the wording a bit and make it 'work of fiction' instead of 'novel' - as that's what I meant. A play is fine, I merely wanted to prevent people from grabbing a non-fiction book for this challenge. So go ahead and add it to the wiki!
I've made a few attempts to cull my books, but I always regret it afterwards. I collect movies, too, so I've got a double issue. The personal compromise I've reached is to de-clutter everything but the books and movies - and cats. That way you end up surrounded by what makes you happy, and if you accumulate more---well, think of it as accumulating happiness. :)

Thanks for the offer to look for DAWs at the booksale, Dejah!

I have a rather long list that I carry around myself, but I won't burden you with the whole thing. A couple that I've been seeking especially are:
#146 Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said / Philip K. Dick
#186 The Wrath of Fu Manchu / Sax Rohmer

Both of these are available through online resellers, but at prices I've so far hesitated to pay. If you can find them cheaply, I'll happily reimburse you!
Thanks so much, Dejah! I hope you like CHOKE.
Thanks again Dejah. I'm off to the hairdresses as part of the "get-well" plan, after posting another giant screed. Oy. Someday I'll be able to concentrate just on books. Maybe. ;-)

xx i.
Oh too bad, Dejah! I've already finished it!!!!

Have fun with it, though--it really is very different from her usual.

Lori and I are reading Farewell, Miss Zukas for the read with a friend challenge (#8), if you'd like to join us, Dejah.
One of my favorite books of the year (nonfiction) is about the attempt to catch James Earl Ray after he assassinated Martin Luther King in 1968. Hellhound on His Trail by Hampton Sides.
I can't wait to see what I should borrow from you. Getting ready to click now!
Spotted your user name somewhere and I'm just stopping by to say hello -- Tharks are favorites of mine. I see on your profile you're reading about the Shawangunks. I used to live just below Mohonk in New Paltz. It's beautiful country.
Ah, I did see a a match with you as my copy of 'Princess' is a double with 'Fighting Man'. In any case, an excellent handle!
Is there a reason why, given your name, you have no Barsoom books?
