About meMy 75-book challenge for 2012 is here:

That's my sweet Roy in the photo above, and Lulu in the photo below.

About my libraryFiction-wise, I like British fiction of various sorts (humorous, Jane Austen-ish, etc.) and some American fiction. Most of my nonfiction books are related to law, political science, or history.

Not long ago you expressed interest in a group read for Henry James' The Portrait of a Lady, beginning in the second half of March. This is to let you know the group read thread has been created. Here's the link:

I'm looking forward to reading with you!
Sounds like an interesting book. When I start thinking about how rotten things are now, I remind myself that life in the past was infinitely worse - for the common people. Accept during revolutions the aristocracy has always had it pretty good.
Thanks for your comments. I think logic is irrelevant to these people. They have an agenda, and they say whatever they think might sound reasonable and can further their agenda. What book was it you read? I read a book that shockingly said almost exactly what D'Souza said,
Hi - thanks for your comment on my thread.

If you want to read more about the LDS faith, I have a couple of suggestions. One is the "History of Joseph Smith by his Mother" and here's the Amazon link:
This is a great read. It's Lucy Mack Smith's personal and family history and a history of the LDS church in the early days. It would give you a fair picture of the people and times, and I found it an easy read. I have a special affection for this book as it was dictated to my 3rd great-grandmother, Martha Jane Coray, and she and her husband compiled the first edition.

The other, if you are interested, is a book called "Our Search For Happiness" written to answer questions about specific beliefs in the LDS faith. If you would like a copy of it, and feel comfortable giving me your address, I would be happy to send one to you. I have an extra.

Never mind my last post...
Thanks Carlym for your help...much appreciated!!
Hi Carlym,

Where do I find the "work page?" I'm rather new to all this and I'll admit and it's taking me awhile to find areas within the website...

Found it and mooched! Thanks again!

I just wanted you to remind you that my Bookmooch name is artemisathene. That name was already taken here at LT so I went with cdnbookworm. Thanks again for picking up that book for me that will help me so much.

Dear Carly,
I won't even try to explain how I got to your profile, but now that I'm here, I see that you own and have reviewed many books published by Virago Press. (And oh! There I am in your list of "members with.") I also now see that you're an old LT hand, but I'll offer you an invitation to join the Virago Modern Classics Group anyway. Wonderful books! Wonderful, wonderful people!! Hope to see you there.
Thanks for paying me the compliment of adding me to your interesting libraries. I see that you like cats - I have five of them!!
Hi! Yah, the kitty I am kissing is my tiger kitty, only she is much bigger now. She is 8 months old (plus a few days) now. Sometimes another photo pops up with me and my black kitty. His name was Kiki, but he died this year. :( I'm glad you like cats too! :)
OMG! Thank you so much for being my SantaThing this year! I got the books today and they are just perfect! That cat book is soooo hilarious! hahaha. I also love the music book and can't wait to read it! So strange, but my new baby kitten (who is approx. 8 months old) looks almost exactly like your Roy kitty! And, I used to have an all black kitty named Kiki. He died this year though. He looks a lot like Lulu! :) Anyway, I wanted to say thanks and tell you that I love your picks!!! Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays! :) kristin
Hi Carly!
:) Do keep me in the loop if you do decide to put those books (Four Queens, The Unruly Queen, Botany of Desire, The Planets) up on Bookmooch! I have plenty to read, so there's no rush, just whenever you gt around to things!
