Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed

Beth Thanks for befriending this fellow writer on Goodreads!


Avraham Anouchi Hello BookBanter,

Your reading activity is very impressive and so are your reviews and ratings.

Unless I misunderstood the first sentence of your Goodreads profile, I believe that you have a typographic error. It should start with "I write..." rather than "A write..."

Avraham Anouchi

You can read all about my "Hidden Scroll" historical novel in my website at www.anouchi.org.


Fenixbird SandS Yeah for John Irving's Cidar House Rules! Thanks for adding me as a friend here.. Nice to meet you, Alex.


Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me yesterday. I wanted to share the Stoker Award news, and I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened to create so many messages. Some weird glitch.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.

-Jeremy


Monica Hi Alex,

It took a minute for me to figure out how to email you back! Thanks for asking me to be your friend. How did you find me? Looking forward to going through your books and reading your comments. All the best.
Mon in Mich

Alex Telander Now that's just cruel, and you know, I don't have an answer for you, because there simply isn't just one book that I have as a favorite over all others.


Jeremy Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:

Jeremy Hi Alex!

Thanks again for sharing! Some of my favorites are 1984, The God of Small Things, Slaughterhouse-Five, and A Clockwork Orange.

Here’s wishing you a yippee-filled Yuletime overflowing with yard-long yams, yapping yoyo-yanking yetis, yak-milk yeast-cakes, and yellow yarn-yielding year-end yard-gnomes.

-Jeremy :)


message 2: by Alex (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:55PM)

Alex Telander You know, I don't have a particular single favorite. Though one of my top ones is Neil Gaiman's "Neverwhere," just made such an impression on me when I read it. Also John Irving's "The Cider House Rules" which I consider the American novel of say the last half of the century.

You?


message 1: by Jeremy (last edited Aug 25, 2016 01:55PM)

Jeremy Hi Alex!

If you don't mind sharing--I was wondering, what's your favorite book of all time?

Here’s wishing you a weekend filled with wacky whims, wonderful weirdness, and well-disposed werecats.

-Jeremy :)
