And good lord, is that bear yawning or he is about to do a Luis Suarez?
Very helpful review of Herland--thanks. Unlike you I don't mind if a novel isn't plot- or character-driven, but I can't bear ones whose points are driven in by a sledgehammer. Sounds like this is one of those.
I think that's a well-known fact on Librarything. Just don't tell anyone I know on person. :P
Same bat time? Same bat place?
Hi Rachel--Can you tell me how to post the three way tickers (yes, no, maybe) that you use for the polls on the science religion and history thread?

If you'd like to do it, go for it! I volunteered when you weren't around and so will do it, but am happy to give up the job.
Thanks so much, Rachel. So easy when you know how...
Rachel, how does one use the poll feature in LT? I have two different styles of Christmas earrings I'm making and want a poll of my visitors as to which they prefer. I know you use it in our Science, History, Religion group, and I can't figure it out. Thanks for your help.
Sure thing.
My next available Saturday is the 29th.
Just out of curiosity - is Richard Dawkins' scientific research well-respected in biologist circles?
I had fun too and look forward to being all zombified this summer :)
Cool beans! I'm also in St. Paul on Wednesdays, and could easily pop over to Minneapolis after 1/130.
Note: I leave town on the 17th and won't be back until the 25ish. So if we miss the next week or so, I probably won't be able to meet until April.
I would love to win a copy of Congo Dawn!


Found this interesting especially in the light of the social justice group read.

That's because you do have a new friend now. :)

You could also think of me as a book-obsessed young man who likes your tastes and can now stalk your book collection because he is getting regular updates single book you enter into your catalogue on his home page. "Friend" sounds much less creepy though. :P
Hi! We share some of my favorite books, and I am pleased to tell you that "Voyage of QV66" by Penelope Lively is now available. Look on Amazon where it can be had for as little as 2 cents plus postage OR as much as $ 124.68!!! (The friend for whom I tried in vain to buy it for has since died.)
Your contributions to Sbarrow57's 12 in 12 thread have thoroughly piqued my interested -- I thought I would poke around your library. We don't seem to share very much, and what we do share runs the gamut on how we reacted, but -- I like your brain, and I'm quite glad you're here. :)
P.S. Did you read Homecoming? If you did, I'll send you Dicey's Song and Seventeen against the Dealer.

THANKS!!! for the box of books, Rachel. I entered them all, and I think you up to no. 6 on my list now. Pretty good! Thanks again for the books - I'm going to have Reader's Indigistion before I finish reading them.

Rachel, I'll send out a copy by the weekend. When you do get the time to review it, I hope that it will have you wanting more. Good reading, and thank you.
Recently finished The Dragon Factory and saw on LT there had been an LT author chat with Maberry (which looks like it turned out a bust because he never responded). Anyway, I read all the comments posted and yours stuck out because of the phrase "Fatal Familial Insomnia (The Family that Couldn't Sleep)" -- I had run across that term in another book and thought you may be interested. Book: Sleepless by Charlie Huston -- A scifi-ish biotech thriller about the population becoming sleepless. Thought it might interest you.

I saw that you wanted it back. I put "on loan from Rachel" instead of just "from Rachel" so I will remember! Are you in your new apartment yet? Or still on vacation??
No rush. Thanks a lot for finding the books, and thanks for the ones you left here. Enjoy the rest of your visiting time, and let me know when you get settled in your new apartment and your new job.
PS Have you read Adam yet? Kiss was really good! I'm saving that for you too!
Hi Rach!

The newest Artemis is out! I'm planning to have it read by the time I see you in September. I'm looking forward to seeing you. Hope you are defending your thesis well!!!

Hey! You are number 14 on my list!!!
Hi Rach!

Glad you got your books. Trouble is, I found one lonely book under the chair where I had them stored. (The Scarlet Pimpernel) I'm sending it on, with a bunch of old Writer mags which you can browse and toss.


Hi Rach!

THANKS for the box of books!!! We got it yesterday and I already have them listed on LibraryThing. Did that help my rating any??

Thanks, too, for the advice. I am going to begin by turning "The Lightening Thief" over to Austin and see if he reads it.

donandpatti share 70 books with me. They must be really weird people!
I thought it strange that we only share 11 books too, but I noticed that when I was copying books from you none of them showed up as "shared." They didn't seem to pick up the ISBN and I had to go in and change them--or some of them.
You remind me of someone I know.
Welcome to Library Thing, Hibenator! Yes, we do seem to share a lot of books, although I see that I am getting further down the shared list, the more books you add. I like your picture - it does you justice! I'm presuming that's a yawn and not a growl preliminary to eating somebody or something. Anyway, I hope you have as much fun entering books as I do!
