Jack Hi everyone,

I have created a new group called Goodreads All Sorts and I'd love for people to join it or just even just give it a look. It's a group that discusses anything and everything. There will be monthly group reads, movies, and music. There is a folder for everything you could think of. I'd really like if people could spread the word because I'd love for the group to be a success. Here is the link to the group:

Thanks very much,
Jack :-)

Charles Pascoe If anyone is interested in Edwardian era theatre actors/actresses, you can read about Edna May at http://www.ednamay.net
She may very well have been the world's first superstar.
