redfrog:  Are these good? ...I just love series books and am ready to start a new one...if they are sappy romantic stories I am not interested, but if they involve history and fantasy I would like it.  What is the theme?

Sujet: Re: Robert Jordan isnt among us anymore :(

Have you read any of these and do you recommend them?
If one were to start the series where should one begin?
I have occasionally started series from the final installment and read backward
By accident mainly, but it still works

Running with Scissors is one of My Favs too
I wonder where it is in the list
If you have a copy and want to add it to the library ask one of the mods

Hi Barb
Didn't you love One Thousand White Women?
The title conceals the historical content of the novel, so most people wouldn't pick it up.
But I loved it.
If there are no takers, send it back to me.
It is my book and I'll read it again...
 Songs in Ordinary Time  I have already read it twice
If anyone loves pathos, this is your novel.

I have at least 10 good books to add to the mix that I have read in the past 2 months.

We need to re-organize this site
Make one library alphebetically by author
Include all the books in everyone's lists.

There is so much to read..............

Thanks Antje!
Listing your books in our library of available books for check out means that anyone who wishes to read any one of your books simply needs to PM you here at this site and you will send it to them for free.
In return I think they should add a book on the library  list
Ben Franklin did this
We can improve on his idea.

Golly YES
email me the list because all of the books on the current list are mine and I have read them all

PM me here at BK

Sujet: Re: Wicked and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire

Thanks so much
I have read all of these novels and would love to share them with anyone
People new here need to know that we pm our addresses to each other when a book is requested
No one's address becomes public knowledge
This is an honor system and it has worked very well for over a year now

The two novels by Gregory Maguire are separate:


Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister

One is based upon the Wizard of Oz  (made into a Broadway Play)
The other is based upon the Cinderella story

BTW  Hi Dolittle!

Hi Do
What happenend to Eriisa?
Did she hand her duties off to yo?.  Let's just promote this site, if possible, by word of mouth, and maybe we'll get more visitors and more interest.  Are you able to add the books I have in the list of books available?
And perhaps it should be titled differently
Instead of Book Circle Request List it could be Book Circle Library List, which implies that these books are available and can be "checked out"

Hi everyone
I certainly hope we get back into book trading now that winter is upon us
 I have several new books to add to the mix:

The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Wicked and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
A Wedding In December by Anita Shreve

Some of these are a little dog eared and wrinkled from getting damp while I read them in the pool.  LOL
More to come

The Glass Castle by Jeannetee Walls perhaps
It's in our library here at the Books Fellowship

Did you read the Dark Tower Series? by SK

Sujet: Re: Stephen King

I have read everything Stephen King has ever written
Not that I can quote from them or remember every single story
But I love his writings
First time I read The Stand I had just moved to NYC and the scene in the tunnel under the river was frightfully real to me.
I could really visualize it having been in those places. 
Every book he writes is special to me...He is one person I would love to sit down and have a talk with
Are you telling me that the first edition of  The Stand was edited and I did not read the real thing?

Will you add  Our Hands Are Stained With Blood  to our library?

I will be first on the list to read it.


PS  One Thousand White Women is a story about early  civilazation in the USA

in the times of Lewis and Clark

I am so delighted that you have fond memories of Charles Dickens' writings.
Being deaf, they must have been quite an education in elocution
He was one wordy fellow and with a sharp wit, indeed.

God bless you
I am still reading Hard Times

Of course not, and I didn't mean to offend
I lived in the panhandle, strictly agricultural and livestock
The parents in our school district, who elected the school board and chose the curiculum
were making future farmers and homemakers in 1974
I learned a lot there but not about reading or the arts
But I can sew an entire wardrobe for a man or a woman!

I went to high school in Texas and they didn't give a darn for Charles Dickens
I have just finished Great Expectations and am ready for Hard Times next.

His imagery and vocabulary are so beautiful and I love his style of always promoting the underdog.

Darn I thought I was replying to Doliitle but whatever
I still don't have this book back from my son's girlfriend, although she read it and was charmed by it.

I'll send it on
Do is the most proficient reader amongst us.

I am almost done with Charles Dickens:
Four Complete Novels
including Great Expectations
Hard Times
A Christmas Carol
A Tale of Two Cities

I would only pass this on if I could be certain that it would be appreciated and read thoroughly

My favorite book of all time is David Copperfield

Has anyone read that?

The Stand
opened my eyes to his writings. It was regarded as horror because it involved the results of a bio catastrophe.
The book is not about horror, it is about
Good vs Evil

One of the Best Books I have ever read

7. Avril 2006, 20:29:20

After I made this post I read back to see what i have missed. Sorry to be slow on the uptake, but I will mail, free of charge, to anyone anywhere any of the books I recommend. I will only send out those that I will miss when they are gone! That's what books are for, IMO.
