About my libraryThis is a small part of my library - what I have accumulated since I have moved. The rest is boxed up at my parents house until I can get more space.

Since 2003, I have cataloged what I have read in a journal, giving a synopsis and rating scale. Once I found LT, I am also cataloging on here as well as the journal.

I go through spurts of heavily relying on the library and buying books. I am trying not to buy as many books this year, but am not doing so well.

I have a lot of young adult literature because I took an extremely interesting class on YA lit, that had swayed what I read for a few years. I am still trying to read as many books as I can from the list my professor gave me. I also collect children's books and have included my son's books.

I love this photo!
Thanks for your lovely note. It arrived on a day when I had a coretesone injection and it bright such a spot of cheer.

Thanks for your beautiful card. How are you today?
How are you doing?
How are you feeling Jess?
Hi Jess
How are you?
Simply checking in to see how you are.

I sent a package to you this morning.

Hey Jess/Jayde (whichever you prefer)! Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries' list--I've noticed we have a lot of books in common, your name pops up often on my home page. I'm sure I'll see you around the threads--happy reading!
Thanks for your lovely message. You are a dear, sweet person.

I'm just stopping by to say hi and to thank you for visiting my thread so often.

Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries. It's like icing on the cake when you find someone with similar tastes at a website like this!

Hi, Jess! :) Love your cat photo, and awesome collection. We share 124 books so far. I'll have to pop over to your jayde-kid account and see how many more we share.
Thanks for being my Santa Thing! Both books look like they are right up my alley - can't wait to read them. Have a Happy New Year!
Oh, I'm so glad you liked them! Actually, we have so many books in common that I added you to my interesting libraries as well... Could you possibly post a link to your thread over on my thread or profile or something - it's so hard to find anyone amongst all these new threads for 2010. I can't wait to get started, I just feel READY for the New Year now!
Hi Jess

Many thanks for your kind birthday message! It means a lot.

Thanks for adding BannedBooksLibrary to your Interesting Libraries. Happy Reading!
Noticed you liked She's Come Undone, 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 disturbed young girl's downward spiral and 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:


This is a note to say I hope you are healed and feeling much better now that surgery is behind you.

Happy Holiday to you!
I'm simply stopping by to ask how you are feeling and to say I hope your recovery from surgery is going well and that you are having pain free days and nights.

Take good care,

Princeton Maine is located near the St. Croix river (flowage). It is West of Eastport and one of the nearest towns is Calis. It is VERY close to the Canadian border.

We love it there, but it is a very poor area. The Downriver camp is very rustic and we go there with friends who have rented cabins at the camp for years.

It is so very relaxing.

Hi Jess

Thanks for the very nice response to my post on your link regarding my memory of my grandmother and her words re. nature shows.

I note you are from the state I love... Maine is so incredibly beautiful. We vacation in Princeton for a week in the summer. We stay at a rustic camp called DownRiver Camps. It is my favorite vacation thing to do...simply watch the stars and listen to the loons.
Glad you are going to join us. I have a 'Group Reads - War and Peace' thread started on the 75 Books Challenge already, so there will be several of us. I think it is going to be interesting getting everyone's viewpoint as we go along!
