scherzo♫ (pjreads) Hello,
I'm Peggy from Mesa AZ (my heart's still in CA).

-Are you willing to kiss all your spare cash goodbye?
Oh yes, books are the only thing I buy without a thought about the cost.

-Are you easily distracted by independant bookshops, big name book stores, and library or used book sales?
More entranced than distracted ... I still treasure memories of the public libraries in Glendale CA, Inglewood CA, school/college libraries and bookstores everywhere, especially two in Ann Arbor MI.

Are your bookshelves currently a little tight of space?
They used to be, but I gave thousands and thousands of books to the Mesa public library before I left to spend two years in the UK. I kept Shakespeare books, writing books, a dozen sci-fi books, Buber's I and Thou, Wilber's A Theory of Everything, some art books ... (this is getting way too long).

I guess I feel at home already. I don't usually run on like this.

Johanna Moran (johannamoran) | 19 comments Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to goodreads, and brand new to this group. I was intrigued by your August selection "The Time Traveler's Wife." I've been meaning to read it for some time, mainly because my Ballantine editor edited Audrey's book while still at McAdam Cage. She (the editor) was extremely thorough. My book profited a great deal from her keen eye. Looking forward to chatting with this interesting group. Johanna

Hi Hi Johanna.. does that mean you are going to pick it up and read along with us?


message 14: by Johanna (new)

Johanna Moran (johannamoran) | 19 comments Yes. This was just the incentive I needed. I'm researching a new book, and haven't had much time for pure pleasure reading lately; but I'll make time.
