Jean Hi Nancy-- Thanks for "liking" my review of "Flash." But I'm curious-- what did you like, since I actually didn't review it? Just wondering if you know some of the writers who are included in this anthology.


message 2: by Nancy

Nancy Woods I'm new at this Goodreads game. I just "liked" that you're reading. :) I read Shipping News years ago. Not sure why that's showing up.


message 1: by Jean

Jean Hi Nancy-- Not sure how you "liked" my review of "The Invention of Wings" since I'm only just now reading it and haven't actually reviewed it. Interesting! Maybe you're anticipating I'll rate it highly. And I think you're right.

Are you just now reading "The Shippinng News"? I loved that book.
