Hello, I just wanted to thank you for the Santathing books. They both look really good, and I can't wait to read them.


(Sorry for the lateness of my message, by the way. I just got them today because the office of my apt. complex misplaced the package.)
Absolutely. I'm glad you liked the books. Did you get the baseball one? (I ordered an extra one in case something wasn't available.) I think I'd like to have that one myself. Although most of the sports books I have are my late husband's, I have loved baseball since I was about 7, which was more than a half-century ago. Mary Lou
Thanks for the invitation. I'm delighted and flattered. Hope you had a lovely holiday. Mary Lou
Ah, I read Last Days of Krypton, and Paul of Dune by him. Both of them were very well written just kinda laid back, lacking excitement, and really long.
Hey,I saw you just got Enemies and Allies, did you get that as a book review copy or buy it? It just popped up on my bostick email for me to review it so I'll probably be getting it in the mail.
It's Kaiden!
it would come in handy
Always nice to find other fans of Martin. I still have A Feast for Crows left to read in ASOIF. How did you like it?

And of course, you have to love CS Lewis and Tolkien.

Interesting that you mention Spock, Messiah!, I've always associated that with Spock Must Die! as "two similar books that I'd really like to find and read". :) I'm a Spock nut, what can I say.

I enjoyed Eragon very much. Eldest less so, mainly for length reasons, but I liked it too. I didn't feel like it was a great work of literature so much as a good sort of fairy tale, but I don't read books for their "literary merit" in general. I know a lot of people thought Eragon was too cliche, but I just thought Paolini was putting the stereotypes to good use. (He did go further with cliche-ness in Eldest though.) I thought it was funny, had a natural writing style, and I loved Saphira and Brom. I'm being long-winded, as is my tendency, but essentially I'm saying that I had a great time reading it so it got five. I see you only gave it one half, a pretty stiff judgement, what's your opinion about it?
Hey jpers36, I just came across your library browsing some group info of a few books I just bought. We seem to have some interests in common... it's a bit odd to come across a Star Trek novel fan who likes C.S. Lewis, for instance. Anyway, I was curious why you gave Spock Must Die! five stars, if you happen to remember. I just bought it and am looking forward to reading it, but it doesn't seem to be very popular.
Dear, dear jpers: Thank you so MUCH for my Santa books. I love them. One cannot have too many cat books, and this collection is eerie and mysterious without being too frightening for my elderly heart! And the C. S. Lewis is wonderful. This is a title I was unfamiliar with, and a whole new side to the author I really enjoy. Thank you for thinking of me, and matching my interests so very well. I hope your holiday season was as blessed as mine was! Thanks again. Mary Lou
