You're welcome. I wish I'd had the same warning.
Thanks for checking on me! That's very thoughtful.

I'm doing great actually; just very busy and I continually neglect LT except to add newly acquired books to my collection. After 14 years out of the workforce, I went back fulltime in July, and whatever free time I have from work and family, I spend reading. I choose to do as little online as possible. Last year I read over 150 books; so far this year I've only read 78. It feels like a great loss, so I guard my down time jealously.

So that's up with that. I do track all my reading on (I know: boo hiss, the competition!) That's all I use that site for. But its quick and easy to add a just-finished book to my list. LT is where I log my overall collection.

If you're interested in seeing my reading for th year thus far, it's here (I think):

Maybe one of these days I'll be inspired to update LT again. Its the best book/reading site anywhere!
Susan, it's lovely to hear from you! I think that WH is unjustly neglected. I wonder whether you've read South Riding or Poor Caroline. Because I read those first, I will not stop until I've read all of them. I'm not sure that I would have said that if *AW* had been my first.
Belated Happy Anniversary to you!!
Thanks for the info re Rex Stout on Audible. Yes, indeed, Michael Pritchard is the man. What a voice! Back in the day I loved listening to him. I'll certainly check that out. If you haven't listened to any Rex Stout books, they are great!
We did do a 1974 Bestseller list, which I just broguht out of dromancy. The link is: . I started it off and varielle ended up doing perhaps a majority of the work, including the 1974 page.
I appreciate your comments about my review of Visitation. It is nice to find a reader who is affected in the same way by such a powerful book. Visitation was like nothing I have read before, so unique. Now, off I go to study your library to see what new and interesting books I can find. Thanks so much!
Are you going to put wedding pictures up? Cats are nice, but I wish you'd show us some celebration!
Thanks for your kind outreach! I appreciate you!
Hi Susan, Thanks for the nice comment regarding my profile pic. What is it with cats and books?! Or maybe it's not the books at all, perhaps, they just want to get up close to their companion's. Hope you're having a good weekend, Lynda
Thank you for including my library in your interesting libraries list. I see we share some titles -- I'm always glad to meet anyone who has books by O'Nan, Drabble, Spark, and Reginald Hill. I wish you well in your new home . . . it's always lovely to have all the bookshelves you need for your collection.

Thanks for coming by to visit me LGC. I actually started the ABC challenge in late '09 so I'm continuing it in '10. The two A's that remain on my book shelf are The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood and Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Occasionally I'll be throwing in some other stuff from my shelf out of order as the need arises. Hope you check out my thread to see what's up. Be warned, I read at a snail's pace so there may be long breaks between reads. Happy holidays! , Lynda
I really like The Bean Trees so far. I did not realize there was a sequel though. I will have to look for it.
Happy Holidays.

Merry Christmas, Susan!
Chibby appreciates the extra cuddle and I'm giving Elle, Tully, and Hilfy one too so they won't be jealous.
I hope that you don't find the Cherry Ames books hopelessly dated; I haven't sought them out for that reason.
It's always a treat to hear from you.
I saw your entry in the 75 book challenge, so I thought I would check out your library. I just had to send you a note to tell you that the picture of your cat is adorable. There are lots of folks in this group that have or love cats. I am allergic to them so I can't have one, but I do love them. Welcome.
Here on a flying visit! I'm thrilled to see that somebody else remembers Cherry Ames with love. I was determined to be a nurse - never mind that I get faint when I'm present for the tiniest medical procedure on somebody else. Wonderful books!
Susan, I started a note here the other night and had to leave for some unknown reason. I've been doing heavy hospital sitting with my aunt this week and haven't been home or at LT much in consequence. Just wanted you to know that I'm not snubbing you and will reply to your nice message soon!
Hi, Friend! I'm not sure what friending does except make the person easy to get to.....
(((Angela Thirkell)))!
Susan, thank you for the delightful look into your family - and I do heartily recommend multiple cats. I'm guessing that you have experience to go on too. How wonderful for you both and Isla that you saw beyond her needs! (I love "fibre-based media," both the term and the things themselves!!!!)
And thank you very much for your review of the Drabble. I will put it on a wish list but not be overly aggressive about buying it. You will have seen that I read more fiction than anything else, and I do admire MD's. I have a pile yet to read but really enjoyed The Gates of Ivory last year. I don't have anything in common really with Liz Headleand and her friends, but they are characters who live somewhere in the back of my mind.
Hope work is going well and is not too overwhelming. Early retirement has been a joy that I haven't even begun to deserve!
Dear Susan,
I'm happy to hear from you again! I know how overwhelming work can be, and more happy than I can say to be retired. Hope you have given yourself plenty of down time. I'm sorry about your little Wolkchen (imagine umlaut!). She looks very like our Katy who was with us for 19 years, surviving her brother Pinky by many years. All our animals are rescues - mostly from the neighborhood. Miss May was rescued by somebody who put her and her puppies in the local shelter; she had been raising them at a dumpster. After some time in another home, the owner brought her and her daughter back because they chewed things and jumped up. May is a nearly perfect lady now (Daughter was adopted and went to Wilmington, N.C.), and after nearly 2 years is learning to be top dog. The kitties have adjusted to the porch well and come into the house on a daily basis but don't have full run of it yet. Chibby hisses and spits every time she sees them, but they haven't fought yet. One day I'll have them all in!
I see that you're reading the E. Taylor bio. She is one of my favorites, but I don't know anything much about her life. Again, I think you'd like the Virago Modern Classics group. My current VMC is The Ladies of Lyndon by Margaret Kennedy. It doesn't read like a first novel, which it is; it's not great but is very good. OO! You're reading Margaret Drabble too! Another favorite although I don't have this new one. Come back as you have time to let me know what you think about it.
Hope you have a useful, joyful week!
Susan, so nice of you to come back and speak! I went a little crazy after I found this place in January, and added at least a hundred books a week for quite some time. I probably have another couple of hundred to put here, but RL and a waning of interest in getting them all catalogued have slowed me down considerably. I also find that this place has made severe cuts into my reading time. I'm trying to mend that.
Love the little gray cat! We have just invited a mother and her 2 babies into our lives and onto the traditional cat porch. (I'm waging a subtle campaign to get them into the actual house by winter.) At any rate, Elle and Hilfy are gray tabbies with a lot of white, and Tully is solid gray and white. We also have Chibby, our charming tortoiseshell, who is not happy to welcome the interlopers at this point. That's probably more than you want to know, so I'll not tell you about May the Dog of the House!
Stay in touch as you can!
I'm very pleased to know that you think my library is interesting! Thank you!
Contrary to what your profile page says, we do have 26 books in common, and they are good ones. I hope to see you around; LT has become quite an addiction of mine! (Because you have so many of us who have your books, you should check out the group at Virago Modern Classics. I think you'll find kindred spirits. I know you'll find lovely women!)
