Hey Deb, I recently read your review of My Name Is Russell Fink. And although it did not seem to be your cup of tea, I did want to express my heartfelt thanks for both reading my work and sharing your thoughts. It really means a lot. Thanks, and have a terrific day!

Noticed you liked The Glass Castle, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Hi Deb - After leaving a comment on the TSCPL page about your review of The Book Thief, I hadn't checked it again till this weekend, and saw you'd written a follow-up - thank you! Did you say that there was a Book Thief discussion in December? I looked back at the December ConnectNow and it said the book was The Secret Life of Bees. Did that change, and I actually missed the Book Thief meeting? I would *definitely* have gone to that, as long as my schedule allowed it.

The book later this month is Atonement, right? I decided to read that, since I already had it but hadn't read it yet, and am hoping to attend that discussion. I am too busy to be a "standing" member, but am certainly glad to attend when I can. :-)

Have a good one!
Have you read Dee Hendersons O'Malley Series. I really have been enjoying them, my husband bought me my first one for Christmas and has bought me 3 since and I have those all read and ordered the last 3 from Barnes and Noble.

I have also read almost all of Susan May Warren books and really enjoy her. Would love to get more people going on the Christian Fiction group to see what they are reading and be introduced to some new authors as well.
Hi thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries. It sure does look like we enjoy the same kind of books! My newest favorite is Charles Martin, I can't wait to get his newest! Rikki
Hi Deb - thanks for the invite! I haen't been back here for months so only received your invitation today! I have been busy at Shelfari. Looks like we have a lot in common with our books.
Hi Deb,
Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries list. I've done the same for you. :-) I usually am an avid library user too. We're blessed with a library system here in South Florida that carries a lot of Christian fiction. But since I've started reviewing I have so many books to read that it's been a while since I've gotten any from the library. I have been using Paperback Swap lately, and love it. You might want to give that a try too. It's a great way to swap books you've read for ones you haven't yet.

Yes, you are is the EW Conference. I keep going back and forth about going but I think we are going to do it. Sure looks good.

I have read What's So Amazing About Grace by Yancy and liked it. I'll have to add this one to my BTR list. It sounds good.

I just started On This Day by Melody Carlson. So far it is good. Hope to get it read this week-end.

I see you are a Dekker & Peretti fan... I love Christian Fiction too! Have you read Linda Lee Chaiken? By the way, no one has ever added me to interesting library list...I was flattered! Have a day! Joy & Strength, Liz :) Neh. 8:10
She is speaking the last week-end in October at a Women's Conference at a church in Raytown. I believe Raytown Baptist. If you are interested I'd be happy to look up the exact information. Chonda Pierce will also be speaking. She is really good too. She's a christian comedian. Twila Paris is one of the music people that will be there. That is part of the reason it is $100 for both of us. But it is a two day event.

Let me know and I'll get the exact information to you.

You actually got to meet Deborah Raney? She was in Topeka? How neat. Karen Kingsbury is going to be in Kansas City in October and my daughter really wants to see her...but it will be $100 for both of us to go! :o) Can't decide if I want to do that.

I finished A Thousand Voices and it is supposed to be the end of a series but it just screams sequel. I hope she changes her mind.

I have heard of Lori Copeland but have never read her. Is that part of a series or is it a stand alone?
I have to admit I gave up on the Potluck Club because it was going in a direction I didn't like. I am reading the last of the "Tending Roses" series right now. I highly recommend this series by Lisa Wingate! Very good.

Stay cool as it is really hot in our neck of the woods.

Dear Deb: I have no idea if I am doing this right. I saw your profile awhile back and invited you to be a friend because we read a lot of the same books and both happen to live in Kansas. I got a response back with a "private" message but don't know how to retreave it??? How do I get the message you sent or is it just that you accepted my request for "friendship". I'm new to this can you tell?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Mrs Foods (I love to cook)
You have great books and I can't wait to read some of them. I am always looking for more to read. Marge
