Darby Karchut Why, Cheryl, that was very sweet of you - many, many thanks for doing so!


Cheryl Landmark Thanks for the friend request, Darby. I've added your book "Griffin Rising" to my TBR pile. It sounds very intriguing!


message 6: by Jesse

Jesse Hanson Namaste Darby,
I'm very happy to be your friend here on goodreads.com. Want to wish you the best in all things. I appreciate your taste in fantasy books.
I hope it won't seem to forward of me to invite you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man. It definitely has certain elements of fantasy, though it is inspired by my own experiences. A recent reviewer noted the surreal quality of my character, George.
In any case, I'm adding Griffin rising, but you should know, I'm a relatively slow reader and backed up a bit. Truly, jesse


message 5: by Ed

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Darby. It's greatly appreciated. If you love a good mystery, and you have either a Kindle, Nook or iBooks, I encourage you to try a sample of my first novel. It's called FORBIDDEN STEPS and it's getting raves and 5 stars across the board. Check out what folks are saying by clicking on the link below, then scroll downward.

Darby Karchut Goodness, I've finally gotten around to updating my list of books. It's only been like four bloody months!

These are all the books I've read since September 1, 2010. I'm not putting dates since I have no idea when I read them. I eat, oops, I mean, I READ about 2.9 books a week!
