Thanks, Roberta - though seeing you here makes me realized I've got some unmentioned classics to include!


Roberta Thanks, Alex. You've read some of the same good books I have! Add to your list: Six Months in Sudan: A Young Doctor in a War-Torn Village by James Maskalyk (non-fiction, which I don't usually read, but a terrific book).

John Curry Thanks, Alex. Like the site but am working on a commercial nonfiction book and don't get time to read much fiction, the writing I prefer as a reader. Hope I get some time later. jc

Scott Alex - if it makes you feel better about inviting 493 friends, I'm very glad to be one of them. Seems like a cool site. :)
