It sounds weird to say "thanks" for adding me to your Interesting Library list, but in a selfish way, I suppose, I do appreciate the acknowledgment. Your library is about a third larger than mine, so I am especially pleased. I was just looking through your Kindle books, and that is quite an amazing selection! You apparently read a lot of nonfiction, judging from your current reading, and so do I. At any rate, I'm pleased to see your library, and thanks again!

thank you for adding me to your interesting libraries
It seems we share interest in Maritime books
Awful number of volumes you have there
I am honored to be added to your interesting libraries list. I notice you are a fan of Robert van Gulik - one of my favorite mystery writers. He does have quite a feel for China. Have you read his biography? It is quite interesting.
I uploaded a cover for this book.
Very nice profile pic, yo.
I'm pleased you find it my library interesting. It includes every book I have ever read cover to cover, and does not include anything I've not read. Do you have a recommendation as to some great book I've not read which I should?
Nice cat. Sitting right underneath 'Dog years'.
I'm flattered to be added to your interesting libraries. We share a broad variety of books. I notice that you are a Judge Dee fan. I will come back and look through your catalog when I have more time.
rameau, thank you for adding me to your interesting libraries. Are you the cat on the bookcase? You have such a lot of books. I am in awe.
Love love love your library (and your logo too). What book is that your black cat is taking a break from?
Well, it looks like I've added you some days ago. But you'll surely be remaining there.
Thanks for adding me to your "interesting libraries". It looks like we share 32 books. A few weeks ago I finished reading "Great Expectations", and last year I studied "Pamela" by internet in a course from The University of Trondheim (Middle Norway). Very intersting. Just now I'm reading "War and Peace" and "Middlemarch" with the LT Group 'Group Reads - Literature'. We've just started with "Middlemarch" and it seems to be a great novel. I'll now add you to my "intersting libraries".
By the way: Have you read (any of) the books we share?
Hey. I just found you because I had to manually add The History of Beer in America, which I just got for Christmas along with an 18-pack sampler of 6 different historical beers. Did you get the same thing?
It's great to meet another John Christopher fan! I read the tripod trilogy as a child and believe it is one of the major reasons I'm a sci fi fiction fan today. Thanks for adding my library as well. Oh and btw I like your cat.
Thanks! I have been reading a lot of SF for a few years now. I see you're a big PKD fan as well.
