About meWhy does she, bearing us no grudge. Shine upon our parting, reunion deny? But rare is perfect happiness. The moon does wax, the moon does wane, and so men meet and say goodbye.

Hi, I noticed you are the only other member with Hokitika Towm listed in your collection. I encourage you to read it. I loved it. I have also uploaded a cover and copied the description from the book cover, so you can update your file and check out my review.
Thanks, I'll note it on the May/June list. - L
Thanks for adding me to your list of interesting libraries. I see we have quite a lot of books in common.
Thanks for your kind comments posted on my thread. I love your LT home page photo. You look so pretty and so very happy.

I have never made contact, despite us both being Belletrists (if thats the word), and despite the fact that you are my number 1 in terms of shared books. I just noticed that you gave Giaconda Belli a 1 star rating. I found her biography deeply frustrating and completely lacking in insight, but I was wondering what prompted your criticism?
I finished "The Last Reader." I'm thinking it's a 3 1/2 to 4 stars. Someday, someone will write a dissertation comparing it with Roberto Bolano's "The Savage Detectives."
I've nearly finished "The Last Reader," which is listed in your library. (There are only four of us.) It's an intriguing book. I highly recommend it.

Excellent! - L
Just sent the book from the BD, hopefully you will get it soon! - Lois
Well, hello to Wales, then. Ceri, is it? And not far from Liverpool, the home of the Beatles. I wonder if the Cavern there is a shrine for the faithful by now. I shouldn't poke fun, I suppose. I've been a Beatles fan since the first time I heard them on Radio Luxembourg back in '63 when I was stationed with the army in Sinop, Turkey. Which probably puts me in your parents' age group, if not your grandparents. I too love dogs, and am always on the lookout for a good dog book. One of my all-time favorites, which combines a good dog story with a memoir, is Hal Borland's The Dog Who Came to Stay, first published over 40 years ago, but still available, I think. And there is the like-titled, The DogS Who Came to Stay, by George Pitcher, A Princeton professor - also a very good book. As a kid I was addicted to all those collie books by Albert Payson Terhune, as well as the Jack O'Brien Silver Chief (Dog of the North) books. And there wer James Oliver Curwood's (a Michigan author) dog books, Kazan the Wolf Dog and Baree, Son of Kazan. Or try the more recent US bestseller, Merle's Door - terrific, but a weeper, as so many dog books are. Like my friend and backfence neighbor often says: "Dogs. No matter how much you love them, it always ends in grief." He has owned 4 rescued greyhounds. They are a surprisingly loveable breed, I have found. Let me know of any "dog classics" from your side of the pond which I've missed, okay? My best to you and your probably still-new husband. I hope he shares your book addiction. - Tim
I'm trying to figure out where Wrexham is, but will have to find my world atlas. Britain, I suppose. Pardon my ignorance; I'm across the pond. Just reveiwed Junior Officers' Reading Club and wondered who else on LT had it. Not many, but you were one. Your library and reading tastes look very eclectic. And I see a wedding dress in your photo, so I'm prob 40 yrs older - or more. Enjoy your books. My books and dogs keep me constant company. Well, and my wife too, of course. I see you didn't like that Edgar Sawtelle book much either. I think the guy counted on the fact that dog-lovers would buy up the the book. But I thought it stank, Hamlet-stuff and all. Made me kinda mad. Oprah screwed up on that one. Congrats on your marriage. Be happy and be well. - Tim
Thanks for adding me to your list of interesting libraries. I hope that you find some good suggestions there. We share a lot of the same books, so I'll be tagging your library as well!

Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries. How did you happen upon it? Do you own all those 906 you are going to read in 2009 (or starting in 2009)? My local public library added a feature of lists, so I have begun one of books I have read about on library thing that I thought I might want to read. It's grown to about 20 since I started it a few days ago.
