Thanks for letting me know you rec'd. the book.

I hope you enjoy it.

Sher...I'm sure I have your address in my files, but could you please resend it to me. If you would like, I'll send the book What Hearts to you.
Happy Birthday to you Dear One!

I hope your day is as special as you are!
Hey Sher! Thank you so much for the lovely welcome back. I've missed you too! Can't wait to get caught up on what you've been reading. :)
Opps, I'm tired. The book title is Mara's Stories.
Great news re. your daughter's acceptance to work at a radio station. This will look great on a resume because it reflects actual work experience. Plus, the best bonus is that she will make contacts which may enable her to get her foot in the door.
HI Sher

Thanks ever so much for your kind comments posted on my thread today! I appreciate you!
Thanks for your comment! Looking forward making friends on the 75 challenge! I see that we have 53 books in common here. Right now I'm reading one of your favorites--A Tale of Two Cities. My favorite work of Dickens' is Great Expectations, closely followed by Bleak House. I'm enjoying Tale of Two Cities, even though I do know how it ends. BUT I don't know how we get to the end, so that's ok! LOL!

Hi There!

How are you? It is so good to see posts from you. I've missed you.
Hi! Haven't seen you on the threads for a while.

Hope all is well with you.

How is your daughter's first few weeks of college. And, how are you adjusting?
I seem to remember that your daughter is leaving for college this coming week...the 14th?

I'm thinking of you in the sad/happy expectant time.

Thanks, as always, for your kind message. How is your summer? When does your daughter begin her first college semester? And how are you doing in anticipation of her departure?

Thinking of you and sending all good wishes.


Thanks for letting me know you rec'd. the book.
Please feel free to contact me re. your daughter's course of study.

The transition for your daughter might be difficult for all. Leaving home for college is scary. Having your one and only leave home is very scary.

Thanks for letting me know what is happening in your life. I'm sending prayers and hugs.

You are welcome! I love sharing books that I love! It may take a few weeks for the shipment to arrive, but I'll get it out to you right away. It is such a heartbreaking, yet heartwarming book. To think that England took all these children, many of whom had severe emotional problems in their adjustment, gives me hope for humankind.

That did not take long at all. Enjoy!!
I finished that book and will send it out once I find a box or envelope big enough for it. It's larger than the typical hc.
I'd be glad to send the Chicago book when I finish. Book/media rate is slow but inexpensive. If you're interested, please send me your address, probably best to do it with private message checked.

I'm only about a quarter of the way through it. I've heard that Pacyga conducts an occasional Chicago tour--I'd love to do one of those.

I know your birthday is this coming Saturday. I'll be out of town and thus wanted to be sure you knew that I wish you all the best on your special day.

Re: Endgame

You're most welcome :)

It's a good book about some very human stories.

Hi Sher,

I'm glad your daughter is enjoying Atwood! Let me know if she ever wants any other recommendations.

Sorry this reply was so long in coming; I haven't had time for LT is over a month. The 75 Book Challenge has grown so much this year that I don't think I can keep up. I might move to another group where the conversation isn't quite as crazy - I found that even my starred threads were out of control!

Hope everything is well with you!

I don't mind you adding me at all! And, yes, Wild Ride is totally worth the read - especially if you're familiar with Lexington. Calumet Farm is iconic and the book is its story!
I'm simply stopping by to say how very much I appreciate your kind comments left on my thread. You are a dear person and I appreciate you!


Thank you!

I appreciate you!

Thanks so much for your kind outreach. It means a lot.
Sorry it took my so long to respond! I'm so glad to see another "Lexingtonian" on LT! Hope that you enjoyed your holidays.
Hi There
I'm so glad you liked [The Adoration of Jenna Fox]. It is one of the top books I've read thus far in 2009.

It is very complex and thought provoking.

I hope you are well.

And, I note you are currently reading A Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Twain is one of the best American writers that existed.
Mark and I have been discussing the possibility of another group read in November and want your input. We have narrowed it down to two books at this point. "The People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks and "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield. So chat it up with friends or us and let us know if you are up for it and what you think. Probably the same plan as with "Pillars of the Earth" which seemed to work out perfectly for almost all of us.
Think it over and give one of us a shout.
hugs and looking forward to hearing from you,
Hi Sher,

I finally got around to ordering the ION TTUSB05 USB Turntable last month as a gift for my father, as Amazon was selling it for $80. I used it to record my favorite childhood album and one of my parents' favorite albums, "The King and I" by the Mastersounds (1957), which has been out of print since its release. My father's copy of the album practically has holes in it from us playing it so much, and it's probably been at least 35 years since he last played it. We listened to it together on Thursday, and it brought back such fond memories that we were all misty eyed. I can't thank you enough for recommending the turntable!

BTW, as luck would have it, El Records in the UK will be releasing this recording as a twofer CD, along with another Mastersounds album, "Kismet", which has also been unavailable since its 1958 release. The Mastersounds was a quartet similar to the MJQ (Modern Jazz Quartet), but "Kismet" also features the legendary jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery, the brother of two of the members of the Mastersounds. Amazon has this CD available for pre-order, as well.

Best wishes,

Glad to hear that the book arrived safely. Enjoy!

I saw the same post on Whisper's page just today and am wanting a turntable for my son. Do you have a recommendation? Bonnie
I saw your post on Whisper's page about the turntable that plugs into the computer. I'd like to get one for Father's Day. Would you mind telling me the name of the one you bought from Amazon?

Thanks in advance,

Hi and thank you for adding me. I find many of your books interesting as well. I actually found Sybil listed in your collection. I had forgotten I read that book sometime back. I'm still scratching my brain trying to remember all the books I have read in my life - it helps when I see other people's list. Probably impossible to recall them all, but it is sure fun trying. The holocaust books I've listed are only a fraction that I've read. If I remember any more I'll be adding them in the future.
I've added you to my favorites list also. I'll enjoy watching your list grow.

Thanks for posting, profilerSR. Yes, I would agree that when it comes to disaster books I have a pretty darn complete list. I might be missing some on natural disasters and wartime disasters, but when it comes to technology and human-error disasters, I am the queen of the books!

I appreciate your appreciation.
