Thanks for the suggestion! I have read all the DFW out there, including this collection but it might be time for a re-read.
Hi Bill, I am honored that you should deem my library an interesting one. I am always surprised when people do this because I never imagine that anyone would find my library interesting except for me! Was it my Oates obsession? I actually haven't read any Oates this year (very unusual for me!) due to our preparing the house for sale, and all the sorting and purging that has come with that. My focus has been on this, so for most of the year my reading has been what I would consider light. Well, there are still a few weeks left in the year, so I might visit with JCO yet! Best, Lois (avaland)
Thanks for your Jeanette Wintereson recommendations. I just finished Why Be Happy when You Could Be Normal and enjoyed it, so I'll try those next.
I am pleased you find my library interesting,. It is a bit different than most in that it includes every book I have ever read and does not include any book I have not read. I looked at you favorite authors and admit I had never read Jeanette Winterson, though I have heard of her first novel and I pobably should read it since I do try to read things occasionally to broaden my reading knowledge. Do you have a particular book you think I should read?
Hi,

Saw you liked Trainspotting, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reading my new novel and posting your comments here (as well as on a few other book-related sites). Thought you might like my novel since it's also about a group of disturbed kids and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:
