About my libraryThese are just the books I have with me in Korea. Which is plenty enough! But there are more, in other places, too (mostly in Canada).

Hi Gord!

I just entered a Korean book that I bought this morning and saw you were the other owner. I am from California, but have lived in Vienna for 49 years! It would really be great to meet you - my grandfather worked for Jack London!
I do hope you look at the LibraryThing now and then. But I will copy this and send it to your e-mail just in case this doesn't reach you.
If you have time I would like to invite you to dinner - you could give me some tips about Korea and I could tell you about Vienna and give you a small book about it too. My cell phone here is 010-8659-3341.

Hope to hear from you soon. See my profile for more information about my travels and museum work!

greetings, john

PS: Like your picture - zou look very friendly!!!
I enjoyed your astute review of Bikeman. But would you consider re-editing the version that appears on LibraryThing? I imagine you must have cut-and-pasted it, perhaps from a blog, but phrases such as "Land to Light On by Dionne Brand ImageEpics are very difficult to write" are difficult for the reader to cope with, and there are a number of them.

Hi Gord:

Thanks for "friending" me (I'm still unable to use that word as a verb without the quotation marks.

And I enjoyed the gin post over at your blog.
