Caroline Gerardo I love Goodreads! It is fun to see what everyone is reading. I also enjoy seeing friends with similar books, then looking at what else they recommend or read. I'm always reading. Sometimes 18-20 books a month.

Sandra Hi Caroline, thanks for adding me as a friend!


Kelly/yllektra Thanks for adding me! :)


Harlequin Books Hello Caroline, it is a pleasure to meet you.


message 4: by Jesse

Jesse Hanson Dear Caroline,
Thanks much for including me among your Goodreads friends. It looks like your working very hard as a writer and I wish you much success.
Should you find the time and if you have an interest in spirituality, I would ask you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's fiction but is inspired by events from my life.
Namaste, jesse


Cheryl Landmark Thanks for the friend request, Caroline.
