Happy 7th Thingaversary, Tom! How goes life in New York?
In happy hopes that 2014 will bring ever greater pleasures to your reading world, Tom:

Celebrate the return of the light with feasts, merriment, and gratitude for all the wonders of this wide green earth.

Hi! Thanks for the welcoming message! I have started a few books in parallel and still haven't finished, but I'll be sure to get a thread started when I'm done with some of them. Hopefully that will be pretty soon. It would be great to get some feedback once I get that going.

I see we have a sizable overlap between our collections. The books we have in common are actually among my favorites. If you have any recommendations based on that, I'd love to hear them.
Already called Sen. Hannon, and was told *most*brusquely* to get my faggot ass off his phone and let some decent Christer call in support of the Senator.

Not in those words, of course. But thank you very much for thinking about it, and doing the research! I might even learn to like you, instead of just pretending and giggling about you behind your back with the other cool kids.
Hi There. I'm a member of the 75 challenge group. I'm compiling a list of birthdays and sending messages to those whose birthday I don't have as yet. Would you please send your birthday either to the birthday thread, listed below,
or to my home page:

Please read my comments in CK group. I do believe that if one looks at all the lists that have been entered mine is much more relevant. I spent a fair amount of time in finding out all this information and I was very particular in checking that a work existed, i.e. it was not say from a TV show.

I am sorry I have upset you
