Thom Dunn GR gods won't let me invite friends (5/18/11), so please pass the word to yours.

Invited several and will invite more. Most of my friends don't vote on these but I find them fascinating. Goodreads has malfunctioned a little today for me also.

Doing it for you again, Thom? Good grief.


message 4: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Thom, is the invite system not working for you at all? I know there is a daily limit on the number of emails and invites you can send (do prevent spam). Maybe selecting all your friends is going over the limit. Maybe if you do it in smaller batches it will work?

Thanks, I'll try it.


message 7: by Kim (new)

Kim AWESOME list! I've already added a few to my to-read list. Thanks :)


message 8: by Philip (new)

Philip One of the few lists where I have read NONE of the books--and many look fascinating...maybe in the next life!


message 9: by Brent (new)

Brent Say, anyone recommend a good narrative history of the Army Corps of Engineers?
