About my libraryI do actually own everything on here since I have a bit of a book addiction. Well, a few of these may have since left my possession, but I did own them when I listed them and read them. Having moved recently, I am finally taking the opportunity to list ALL of my thousands on here and am having fun seeing how my connections to others' libraries change as I load more of my own collection.

The children's books on here so far are books from my own childhood (and they are generally my original copy, I might add since I'm a book horder from way back) or they are chapter books I've read to or with my children. I'm drawing the line at picture books unless they were mine as a peanut. The scads of children's books I've bought for the kids won't get listed here unless I pick them up to read them myself (which is always possible).

I recently read Johanna by Claire Cooperstein. Thank you for your excellently written review. I agree with you regarding the unnecessary element of sexuality. It seemed out of place for the time, and it seemed our of character for the portrait of Johanna.

I thought I knew so much about the Van Gogh brothers, and in reading this historical fictional novel, I learned more.

Again, thanks.
Hello Kristen. I somehow arrived at your profile and wanted to take a moment to tell you that I got a chuckle out of your “About my library” section. Especially the “since I have a bit of a book addiction” part! (I can’t relate at all. Not!) I only wish that I had all of my books in one place, and that I had never been forced to get rid of many of them along life’s way, which I guess can happen when one moves around a lot.
Good heavens! A North Carolinian with almost twice as many books as I own, who is also a friend of Linda/Whisper 1! I wonder whether you haunt this place as I do. Anyway, it was from Linda's profile page that I found you, and I felt called upon to speak.
I'm a native of Southeastern N.C., and I'm now off to see whether the North Carolina group has any activity.
I'll report back after our meeting on Sunday the 9th. My guess is that 2-4 people will dislike it. I hope I'm wrong. I hope more do so that I can still think of them as critical readers. I don't mind when someone dislikes a fiction book that I like because that's entirely subjective, but if they can't see past his blather and illogic, then I fear for them. :)

Hey whitreidtan: I just read your review of Twelve by Twelve and agree 100% with your take on this smarmy, didn't-live-up-to-its-premise book. I, too, live in NC, in Chatham County (ridiculously disguised in the book), and probably within 10 miles, I'm sure, of the 12 x 12. Our bookclub is reading it for our September discussion and I am looking forward to eviscerating it. I'll probably be in a minority, but perhaps I'll be surprised by another brave soul or two who will admit to disliking this book.

I just finished reading your review of A Good Hard Look and found it to be the best review I have ever read. I plan to read more of your reviews because of that. I will also be reading A Good Hard Look of course. Thanks for the time and effort you put into LibraryThing.

I'm currently reading A Good Hard Look by Ann Napolitano. Your review is excellent.

Hi! I really like your thousands of books and also the excellent reviews that you have written. WE share over 500 books...but I only have maybe 20% of mine entered (a lot of them are ones I have already read in the last twenty year). Just thought I would let you know that I appreciate your insights.
Still working on my review of Eberle's Angel Strings. I hope you'll check it out once it's done. Thanks for accepting my friend invitation.
That is an impressive book collection. I'm reading Angel Strings at the moment. Doesn't seem to be on a lot of other people's lists.
Is that your own library in the photo? Whoever owns all of those books, they look lovely!!

Thanks for inviting me. I was over here stumbling around trying to find out how to add you as a friend when I saw your message and .. life was simple again :)

About The Unit ... oh man, I started having dreams of being in a hospital LOL ... the whole thing had a scary plausibility about it :)

Thanks for adding me.

My best,
Irene :)
Lovely review of My Family and Other Animals! I had never heard of it before but it's going straight to my wishlist. Thank you!
Great that you read Shadow of the Wind. :)
Thanks for accepting the friend request...we have a lot of books in common...I am going to check out your shelf for more ideas. :)

I see you haven't read Shadow of the Wind....oh are missing a great book. :)

I liked that book so much my son and I went to Barcelona to find all the places in the book..he loved it too. :)

Hi! I have just read your review of Lisa Genova's "Still Alice" and really enjoyed it. (I loathe "The Notebook" too!) I keep trying to recommend "Still Alice" to my friends, and they all wrinkle their noses, too. I understand why, I know what they're expecting, but it was such a memorable book that I wish I could persuade some of them to read it! Maybe I'll point someone at your review! ;-)

Thanks for being my friend! We have some terrific books in common.

Lisa :)
