Maryjanice Davidson Thanks, Faye! I'm still pretty new to Goodreads, kind of feeling my way around (but not in a gross pervy way). I think this place is great, wish it existed 20 years ago. :-)

Maryjanice Davidson Right back atcha, Angel!

message 5: by Angel

Angel Gelique What a pleasure it is to have you as a Goodreads friend...thank you!

Maryjanice Davidson I'm new here, too, Christine, still feeling my way around. Hopefully I'll actually get around to reviewing books soon! Thanks so much for recommending my books!

Christine Orellana Thanks so much for "friending" me. Love and regularly recommend your books. Just discovered Goodreads and am enjoying finding someplace to log all the books I've read and discover some new reads for me and my book group.

Maryjanice Davidson You're so welcome! I'm a GR newbie, so I'm kind of feeling my way around (ewww...not like that!). Looks like a fantastic place! The only thing I love more than writing is reading. :-)

Barbara Hi MaryJanice, thanks for the friendship! :)
