Hello Melanie, does the name ancestorsearch mean you are a genealogist? Just curious as I'm working on my family history and have found many of my ancestors are from the Sanford, NC area.

Hi, Melanie.
Thanks for the acceptance!
Hope doing well!!!
Hi, Melanie.
I happened to notice that we have an awful lot of books in common so I thought I'd stop by and say hi. When I got to your profile page and saw the picture from A&E Pride and Prejudice, I really knew we had a lot in common. I watched this on A&E at least 6 times and when they stopped showing it , I went out and bought it. Then my DVD player ate one of the discs so I bought again. I watch it at least 4 times a year. It is so much better than the feature version.

Did you know that there was a new World of Hetar book out?
Hope we run into each other sometime.
Glad you found me! I look forward to checking out your library! I recently read and reviewed The Lady Flees Her Lord - have you read that one yet? I'm not usually into romances, but I liked it more than I thought I would.

Hi, I know what you mean about not reading all of Elizabeth Chadwick's books at once, because then there will be nothing to look forward to reading as great as her books are anyway! I am currently reading "The Winter Mantle", and I love it. I have this system of putting all the titles of the books I need to read into an empty kleenex box (didn't have a hat lol) and reading whatever I pick out of it. I was so happy when I picked an Elizabeth Chadwick book, lol. I'd like to get the Greatest Knight, I should have bought it when I saw it because now I cannot find it in the stores. I will keep that in mind, to read that before The Scarlet Lion. Anyway, enjoy your reading! :)

Hi again! Sorry for replying over a month later,lol. You must be finished The Greatest Knight by now, what did you think of the book? I have not bought that book yet, but I do have The Scarlet Lion, which I think is related to that book, but I am not sure anymore. I have a few books by Chawick that I still need to get to, but so far I've read The Conquest and The Falcons of Montabard and I loved them both, though I loved the Conquest the most. :)
I"m looking forward to reading Chadwick's book on John Marshall as well. I've recently picked up a couple of her older books. I really love her writing style. I just wish they sold her books in the US (although the free shipping from The Book Depository makes it almost like buying in the US!).
Hi! Looks like we have some of the same tastes in books :) I accepted you as a friend and added you as an interesting library. Have a nice day! :)
You've got a great library! Thanks for asking me to be your friend. I am adding you to my interesting libraries too, I plan to go through to get some ideas for future reading since it looks like we have very similar tastes.

Thought I'd drop in and say! Looks like we share a lot of the same book :)
Hie! Yup, I've read Something Wonderful, Once & Always, Until You, Double name a few LOL. In fact, I think I've read pretty much most of Judith McNaught's creations and all of them are really nice =D. They usually have twists in their endings and sometimes the way she ends it really leaves me with that romantic feeling, if you know what I mean =P. Try Once & Always, if you have not done so already, a great one ;)

And thanx for the comment. Cheerz! =)
Thank you. =) I still like some romance in my reading, I just prefer a bit more complexity now I guess. I've just discovered a few of Elizabeth Chadwick's works and I like them too! They're easy to find in the UK, so try Shipping might be a little extra, but I'm sure it will be worth it.
