Happy Birthday Abby, Hope you have a great day filled with friends, poetry and all of your favorite muses.
Yours Always, Sheila
Noticed you liked Catcher in the Rye, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my novel since it's also about a disturbed adolescent suffering from mental illness. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm currently out of physical copies). If you're interested, send me your e-mail address (mine is, and I'll send you the e-book. Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more about the book before you commit:


heheh thanks, yeah I don't have any bookshelves so I had to get a little creative. I want to find some more glass blocks and build another level or two for my books against that wall
ah hah, seems that I've reached my 200 before you. muahahaha ;)
Hi Abby, It's been awhile. Thought I'd let you know that I finally got The Bus Driver Who Wanted to be God from the library. Very quirky. So far (I'm not quite finished with it yet) I like the one called Pipes. Very creative. A few of the stories just left me a little confused. Overall though I would say I have been enjoying it. It's a quick read with the stories being only a few pages each.
Hope everything is going well for you and you're not being blown away by Fay.
Hi Abby, Lovely Bones had me totally absorbed within the first few pages and I could not put it down. I have struggled with recommending it because I don't know how to say I "enjoyed" a book that has such a disturbing subject matter. I need to find a better word. It is extremely well written - taking the perspective of the young girl who has been murdered as she observes (in her afterlife) her family's reaction to her death. It broke my heart but I am strangely drawn to stories with that effect. I think often my taste in books is a bit bi-polar swinging widely from hilarity to sobbing....I go in phases. I guess the best thing I can say is that this is a book I would read again - (maybe I should have given it 5 stars...) You should certainly read it but not when you are feeling fragile - it will not be uplifting. But you read a lot of Bukowski and I know you can handle dark subjects. ;)
Hi Abby, Yeah- I read the first story and it was very strange. I like strange sometimes. heh heh... It is going to be my nightstand reading for a few weeks. As you can see from my recent additions over the weekend- I went on a library run (PLB tags) and got a few weird ones in the mix. ;) I read "The Mother-In-Law Diaries" all in one day. I thought it was going to be funny from a review I read. It wasn't funny- more like a little on the dark/disturbing side but very engaging nonetheless. I have high hopes for another new one "Madicine" by Derek Armstrong that I picked up in the same library run. I just started it last night and could hardly lay it down. It's in my bag for lunch time reading today. :)
Oops, I see you already listed the artist . Thanks, I went to her Etsy site and like what I see. Very inspirational.
Hi Abby, I love the new picture you put up. Who is the artist? I looked up your recent addition "The Bus Driver Who Wanted to be God" and it looks very interesting. I put it on a hold request at the library. There was already a hold on it so I don't know how long I will be waiting but no matter- its not like I don't have something to read in the meantime. ;P
Hi Abby, I realized the other day that I actually have 2 copies of Amnesia Moon (this is one of my reasons for joining this site- so I can avoid buying duplicate books- argh..) anyway, I will be sending my extra copy to you soon so don't go out and buy it or anything. :)
You Are Here This Is Now (Poems, Stories, Essays, and Art from The Best Young Writers and Artists in America) - pretty good eh?
i encourage you to buy that book. it not only has poems but also a few of his short stories as well.....I love a good short story writer, like Murakami
it seems like its been such a long time since i've read the great i can't even really remember the book that well but i do remember not enjoying it, finding it boring. but since i cannot remember it well anymore i might try reading it again to see whats so great. hopefully the flashbacks (if any) won't be so painful
Hey Abby, Hope you are having a blast for your 4th of July. Keep earplugs close by for the baby! We all look forward to finally meeting up with you some day, and for sure you will love the Nashville library. Jerry and I are grilling out, drinking up and doing the LibraryThing - life is sweet. -S
Happy 4th to you too! yeah I hope to own all of his books someday too. all the ones I have listed are mine that I own except for two that i've read from someone else's library - i have to work tonight but i have plans to party a bit after and possibly during work heh
This is one I haven't read yet, but knew it looked like one I needed when I saw it on the thrift store book shelf. Don't you love finding a promising treasure in the thrift store or at a garage sale? I can't resist, especially if I have read a good review or maybe another book by that author that I really liked so I want to get all their work. (I'm kind of the same way about music but that's a whole other can of worms) I have far too many books for the amount of actual shelving space in my home so many of them get relegated to stacks sitting in obscure corners or on random chairs that no one is sitting in for a moment and of course I buy them faster than I can read them. I am also addicted to the public library (we have a most beautiful one here in downtown Nashville- I take all my out of town visitors there), so I tend to read the ones I have gotten from the library "first", because, I tell myself, they have a "due date". This results in lots of wonderful books that I own but have not yet read. I believe that I will eventually get to them is what I am optimistically telling myself each time I buy another book. Anyway, this has been rather long winded, I apologize for that. Let me know what you think of Amnesia Moon, I might need to move it closer to the top of my TBR list. ;)
I promise you won't be disappointed. This book is definitely in my top 10 books of the past year's worth of reading.
Hi Abby, I'm glad you like the picture. It is of Baroness Elsa von Freytag. I have a book listed in my library about her called Holy Skirts. She was a Dadist poet and quite excentric. I am completely fascinated by her.
yeah I actually haven't read that book yet but I've been meaning too and now I'm motivated more than ever heh. The book by Brenda Ueland that I have read is If You Want To Write and that is an Amazing book and really inspired me and just gives great advice on how to write more often if you want to. Oh and also she's from my hometown so it shall be interesting to read about the history of my old city ;)

my dad is the one who introduced me to her books (of course - hah)
