Hey Fence I didn't know you were a librarian. I work for the Multnomah County Library in Portland, Oregon. When the 17 branches can't use material, they send it to The Title Wave Used Bookstore and then I and my 65 volunteers sell it to the public at greatly reduced prices and all the money goes back into the library fund. Since 1988 we have raised over $2 million for the library. We also sell some of the books on line. I love working for the library, because I love to read and believe everyone should have access to all the books they want. I am going to go Order of the Phoenix on Friday night and then on Saturday starting the Deathly Hallows.
Hey Rod, sounds like a good plan to raise money.
Enjoy HP, I'll be buying Deathly Hollows on Sat too. Twitter: ecnef
How did I get here?
Harry Potter I think.
How did the sword come back?
Enjoyed 101 and the picture at the top.
Loved Jane she was the best, and her Hat from mom, but Callie(sp) is prettier
Never saw Rome but am reading Gibbon.
The former being shorter then the later.
Loved "Portrait" still not able to get through his BIG brother.
Always wanted to travel to the UK, oops Irland.
Sorry, My Yankee is showing,
Have you ever read something by Edgar Rice Burroughs?
I hate all things harry potter and all things JK Rowling. I hate these crap fads…I mean i have never read the series nor do i know Jk Rowling(Ok now i know everyone who is a fan would quite rightly dismiss my opinion)….But her work will never be like Tolkiens or Eddings in the fantasy stakes. Its like the old football league and todays super star premier league players, just as as good football was played by the greats as the football today, only the Pele's and Eusebio's(spelling?) never got the money or recognition as todays footballers like Rooney or Gerrard. Its all hyped by mass media and greedy publishers/football clubs etc.. I mean how rich is this Rowling chick? Answer? Too rich! Perhaps my grievance is not with Rowling and her Magnum opus(mind you anything she does i imagine will be with the midas touch) but with the fad that us humans seem so attracted too, the money we poor into these people and the hype and bullshit we so willingly allow ourselves to swallow. Actually perhaps my gripe is with the media, with critics, with blogs, with the internet, with the world…Anyone have a number for a good and cheap pychiatrist?
One of my new years resolutions will be to cut my moaning in half…at least till Feb anyway. oh this is my first post on any blog thingy anywhere and probably my last given the reaction i expect from dissing the great one(JKR) Anyway… Happy moan free new year!
Just wanted to drop a note that says I laughed out loud at your list because it sounds like something out of my own mouth (please substitute a slightly Southern U.S. accent for the Irish one). Who says a southern girl with Irish roots doesn't have a little Irish still in her? I got to your website from doing a search on Sharon Kay Penman. I can proudly say that I have read all of her books (more than once on a few of them) and turned my 23 old daughter on to them too. Your review was "spot on". I haven't spent enough time on your website to check out the other book reviews but I plan to. I am looking forward to your recommendations.
Dropping by via Smoke and Mirrors, reading this caused the corners of my mouth to start some expeditions to my ear-lobes.
How can I thank you, Mylady?
Oh well, I'll take one of your 'ys' [see 60.], and give you one 'l' [see 65.].
Cool Irish….Nice to be here…
Hi – another librarian here, this time in Canada – Vancouver. Got here by searching for The Three Evangelists by Fred Vargas – going to present it for our mystery book club. Love your facts about you – and glad that you like Fred Vargas!
Always glad to meet another Fred Vargas fan. I think I missed the most recent one, now that you remind me, so I must see if I'm up to date with her books. Twitter: ecnef
But I am not a librarian. Just a book lover. Lately I have been on a mystery kick. Simon Brett, J.A. Jance and Tess Gerritsen. How have you been. Just notice you on FF.
