Grant | 25 comments Thanks for starting this great group Laura, I agree with all of the comments. This group really helps us all flourish in our reading and and insights on so many books and topics on books that we would never probably hear about. Thanks to all the participation of the members. So many minds at the goal of enjoying books.

message 16: by Brittany (new)

Brittany Perry | 229 comments lol that's because we all have a place to talk and not be called geeks. I am just happy my poor husband gets a break from, "and then this happened to the character." Its hard on people who don't read. lol

message 17: by Vardan (new)

Vardan Partamyan (vardanpartamyan) | 186 comments yeah, sure is hard on the people who don't read and the best way to avoid that is to start reading :)

message 18: by Brittany (new)

Brittany Perry | 229 comments unfortunately my husband went to schools where the teachers were not so great at their job, now I am teaching him things he should have learned in 3rd grade. Its really sad how elementary school teachers don't understand that without the beginning crucial blocks laid and cemented the whole education process crumbles.

message 19: by Vardan (new)

Vardan Partamyan (vardanpartamyan) | 186 comments I absolutely agree with you Brittany. The foundation is absolutely vital - do it correctly and you will never have a critical problem with the rest of the "building". Do it badly and you will have issues with all the structures you build on the wobbly foundation.

If you can't beat em, join em... that's it... I think non readers think we hide away in books but really I think it helps us interact with people better......

Patricia Hargraves | 94 comments All I have to say is "Oh My God, I have to tell you this part..." and my husbands eyes lose focus and glaze over. So yeah, readers GET IT!

message 23: by Sheila (new)

Sheila | 21 comments Sure I agree early childhood education is very important. My father was a teacher and he made sure all students got proper education in elementary school. Starting with strong foundation builds a great individual.

Hi Laura
Just joined tonight. Amazed to think that I could be in contact with so many people who love books as much as I do. I have several books I'd love to put forward but not sure of the ropes so please let me know how to propose a book for the group to read
Many thanks and I look forward to getting to know you guys better

G oodness of human and humane hospitality,
H ospitality, without inhibition, of inner invitation,
I nvitation to join in jubilation and joy,
J oy of kindled kindness,
K indness born out of long, lurking love of life,
L ife of making mutually munificent moral marvels,
M arvels of nice nature and natural nicety,
N icety of overflowing openness offering opportunities,
O pportunities to purify, and preen up profound Perception,
P erception of rights and life’s vital questions,
Q uestions of right requirements,
R equirements of social, spiritual and sober solutions,
S olutions leading to tolerance and tranquility,
T ranquility of ubiquitous, universal urge for unity,
U nity of various and varied values and visions,
V isions of worthy wisdom,
W isdom that x-axially expands and x-rays,
x- rays into the depths of perception throughout the year,
Y ear full of zenithal zooming
Z ooming into another ambitious year on top gear.
