We'd appreciate you posting your review with Amazon, as well as with Library Thing. If you're able, also post to our website, too (you'll have to create an account and login). I look forward to reading your review!

Hi Rob – Glad to see ya in the book worlds again, as I’ve been mixing some of the sites in what I find. Lately I’ve been watching the TCM classic films with a book inspiration from there, soon to read The Brothers Karamazov and looking for Brighton Rock on the list. Slight snowfalls here and haven’t been shovelling much just yet lol, waiting for the snowman. :^) Hope your having a good one. ~ Daniel
Hi Rob – had a Dr appt and got well blasted along the way lol, more snow again today as well. Wish I had more change in my pocket at the time to catch King’s Under The Dome hardcover on half price in a Newmarket bookstore :”D might try for it again later or go for the library. ~ If you know of any good woodcarving books I should check some of those out for my father’s interests :^) I’ll post some of his Merlin carvings to my photos ~ /|\ Daniel
It must have been awesome to be there for one of King’s talks, very cool :^) I’ve read through most of King’s books and will check out Under The Dome when I get the chance. I’ll look into Early Reviewers and might give that a try sometime; used to be well into review writing and could get back on it again. – Loving your awesome cat pics. This python of my sister’s is now in the care of a good friend, Snuggles she called it lol, quite a friendly snake for as close as I got there :”D /|\
Hi Rai – I’m sure the avid book reader and should really get on cataloguing. Pullman’s His Dark Materials has always been a fascinating read (and a few times again) with some deeper wisdom around the alethiometer as a symbolic wheel and the parallel universe which creates a sort of evanescent spirituality that comes and goes from space, also exploring the idea of consciousness out of ‘dark matter’. The animal da/emon connections are also fascinating. Although Pullman’s been known for the atheist side, the series has been deeply spiritual for me lol, love it as my best fantasy read. – I’ve been reading a great range of fiction and non-fiction (now getting more into Carl Jung) and look forward to chatting with ya here :^) Reading as a disease reminds me of Poe and Stephen King’s mind mentioned in the neurology book on creative writing ‘The Midnight Disease’ lol, another great read I’ve just added /|\ How’s that ‘Under The Dome’ eh? I’ve got to check it out sometime. ~ Daniel
