Nice to hear from you!

I miss being bookseller, so LibraryThing has really helped vill that void.

Thanks for the suggestions about what to read next. I am reading Junot Diaz now, but Mr. Penumbra is next. I hear it is a real book person's book.

I will push the others to the top of my list too.

I do love Penelope Lively, esp Moon Tiger and Oleander, Jacaranda, which I read years ago. I did read and enjoy The Photograph. Lucky for me, I think I have 3 unread novels of hers in my library.

Let's keep in touch.
