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?
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
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 The title conceals the historical content of the novel, so most people wouldn't pick it up.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.
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.
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
Also 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
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"
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?
Dolittle: 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!

How do I know where to send my books when people get on the list?
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.
