Have you read all the books in the President's catagory? Which president book are you reading right now?
Did you know you can only catalog 200 books a year with a free membership?

Ms. Turtle
Is it as large as the 3 volumed Civil War book?
Hello, what are you reading right now?
Do you have recomendations for astronomy?
I need to go to the library so I can get books and C.Ds to put on my iPod. Maybe we can do that while mom and Katelin are in New York.
That sounds good. We can also go to bed late! I'm getting excited now.
I don't know what I want to do.

What is the first thing you are going to read in the new year? I don't know what I will read first thing. This is going to be my last message in 2011. Happy New Year!

What are you reading right now? I'm reading "Time stops for no mouse". I like it. What about your three volumes Civil War book? What are you reading on your kindle?
What is your favorite and least favorite thing about your kindle? LibraryThing?
Thanks! I keep forgetting, when is your librarything birthday?
What is your least favorite book you've ever read and why?

I hope you have a lot of good books to read because the library is closed tomorrow and Sunday.
I sure do! I have 4 books to read.

Yes it would be a good idea.
What are you reading currently?
That would be great! When is your LibraryThing birthday?

Yep, it's true. I've almost been a LibraryThing member for a year. December 28, 2011 was when I became a member.

I've only done 2 tags so far. "Choi Book" and "Saltsman Book".
Are you reading the 3 volumed Civil War on your kindle? Do you have tags that say "kindle"?

Are you reading "Sophie's Choice" on your kindle? I just finished reading "Flush" and "Clementine and the Family Metting". Is your notebook on your kindle?

What are you reading? I'm reading "Replay" and a few other books.

There is a new member on LibraryThing. Her name is YizeMom. (aka Mom.) I just set her up with an account a few minutes ago. Talk to you soon.

Perfect. All we need to do now is ask her if she wants an account.
I agree. Mom will probably like nonfiction. Most of the boys read Harry Potter. I'm not that interested in Harry Potter. Did you read Harry Potter? What would be a good LibraryThing name for mom?
We should get mom on LibraryThing. The last question was what is the difference between biographies and autobiographies. (I know the answer now)
What is the most interesting non-fiction book you have read?

Remind me, what is the difference between biographies and auto biographies? I kind of have an idea.

Are you going to stop reading the 3 volumed Civil War?

Do you read biographies or autobiographies? How is your 3 voulumed Civil War book?


Bonjour (hello) JRockne. Did you notice that I used French? What are you reading right now? I'm reading a book called Replay. I just added it a few days ago. Au Reviour (goodbye)

What books have you been reading lately? What is your favorite book you've read on your kindle? I just sent GramRock a message.

She probably doen't have enough time. How can anyone forget how to read?
Have you heard from GramRock lately?
Okay. What is it about?
Do you have a TEN VOLUMED book?
No chance of that happening!
How is your 3 volumed Civil War book?

Heh! Heh! Heh! Heh!
Any new books?
Did you know that you can recommend books? I made 2 recommendations.
I tried the ISBN # trick but it didn't work. Anything else?
How did you discover Librarything?
How long have you been a member on Librarything?
I will try in the future. But the only problem is that the books that I want to catalog either I can't find or it is a library book and I already turned it in.
Okay. I already know where the ISBN # is.
Have you ever wanted to add a book and it hasn't been available?


Sometimes I read a sentence too quickly and the sentence doesn't make sense. Then I reread the sentence. The second time I read a sentence is usually when it finally makes sense. Why did you start to read the 3 volumed Civil War? How many pages is the 3 volumed Civil War book? What is the title of the 3 volumed Civil War book? When did you start reading the 3 volumed Civil War book?


P.S: If you tell me the name of the 3 volumed Civil War book then I'll call it the real name other than "3 volumed Civil War book". Plus I'm tired of writing 3 volumed Civil War book.
When you buy a book on your kindle do you reread the sample chapters? Do you ever reread books? I do especially my favorite books. Sometimes if I really like a certain chapter I reread it. Sometimes I dislike the first couple of chapters so I skip to my favorite chapters. That is only if I'm rereading the book. I always read a book from begining to end if it is the first time reading the book.

You may be annoyed with my last two questions, but are done withe your 3 volumed civil war book. If not what volume are on?

No I haven't been able to keep up on my books here. Well, maybe that's because I've not been on Library Thing in a while. I only go on librarything if there is an empty computer. How often do you go on librarything?

I LOVE funny books. I dislike very much sad books. I asked GramRock, but do you know any good Hawaii books? If you do, please tell me.

Yes I do like funny books.
Do you any books that you dislike? I have a ton of books I dislike. (I was exaggerating a little).
Thanks for the compliment. I will continue to study the violin.
I like the violin. I don't love the violin but I don't hate the violin.
Katelin plays Mozart on her violin. I think.
Don't you think age seven is young for a symphony?
Are there any books about the magic flute?
I'm not a babysitter so it can't be me. Well... I guess I do babysit once in a while.
Yes I do remember! I spellt your name wrong in my last message. Oops!

JRocne,what is your favorite book that you've read this year? I have alot of favorite books. I'll give you a couple. 1. Riding freedom(in book club collection) 2.The Witches(read aloud collection) and 3.The Sisters grimm book 8 The Inside Story (favorites and your library collections). Of course I have more favorite books.
I do want to study Georgeology! I wonder what the Georgeology text books would look like. They would probably have pictures of George.
There are a lot of ology.
I probably think I will want to study plants and animals.
I believe that you like history books. I havn't read any history books yet.
Have you finished your 3 volumed Civil War book yet? If so what are you reading now?
(Sorry I keep asking this question))
The book on how to read a book sounds familiar. What is it about? What title is it?
How long is a volume?
Did you finish your 3 volumed Civil War book? If you did, what are you reading now?
If I do, it will probably be when I'm older.
What are you reading currently? I hav'nt heard from you awhile.
If they do, I will buy one for my kids.
I wonder if Ted Roosevelt liked teddy bears!
I haven't heard from you awhile.
I like chapter books because they take more time to read than picture books.
How many pages was your longest chapter book? Mine was around 300 pages.
Whats your favorite non fiction book? I don't have one because I hardy read non fiction books.
I sent you a note. I guess it didn't get there.
My second favorite book is realistic fiction, then non fiction.
(that was my note)
I could use some suggestions.
Thanks, still sounds like an interesting about your family. I've been doing ancestor research for my family and it's a slow and difficult process.
Are an ancestor of Knute Rockne? I have a very old book about Knute with a newspaper article attached.
