Ryan | 7 comments My name is ryan dalgliesh and I call East Texas home for now. I have a lovely wife and we will be celebrating two years married next week. We are expecting our first child June 2009. I love to read and write. As a preacher i spend a lot of time reading the Bible, but i am also a huge fan of classic literature. My favorite is The Count of Monte Cristo.

I have one self-published book and am working on another. I pray that one day i'll be published for real.

Nice to be here... i'm brand new to goodreads.

Ryan | 7 comments PETRA,

fantastic that you have traveled so much. I love to travel. My wife hasn't much but i hope to change that. I see that you have an active interest in Art... that is what i studied in college after about 7 years of private lessons... i just wanted to give a personal hello to everyone who said hello to me. I don't want to be the guy who never visits other people's pages.

Seriously, though. Welcome from a northern neighbor. :)

Congratz on your many achievements!

message 19: by Ryan (new)

Ryan | 7 comments Thanks Lisa. I'm not sure that i've achieved much but i'm still young and am praying that God will use me. I tried to find out something about you, but alas "private profile" prevented me. Please share as you are willing.

Cameron (cswagner) Welcome Ryan! I too am a big fan of classic literature. I started The Count of Monte Cristo several years ago, but never had the chance to finish it. I hope to get to it sometime soon again, but I have so many books checked out from the library and I'm not sure when I will be able to. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your stay here. :)

message 21: by Ryan (new)

Ryan | 7 comments Thanks, Cameron. You'll eventually get back around to The Count. it is a very detailed story with about 12 sub plots but it is good.


message 22: by Jen (new)

Jen (nekokitty) | 110 comments Nice to meet you Ryan! Congrats on the coming baby! I have two beautiful children - a four (going on 16) year old girl and a ten month old (going on 6 years) old baby boy. They are a handful, but worth it. :)

I'm currently reading The Count of Monte Cristo, and am LOVING it!!! Hopefully we'll get to have a good discussion about it soon.

message 23: by Ryan (new)

Ryan | 7 comments Thanks, Jenni. I'll need to read it again soon so that i can be fresh when we have our discussion. We are very excited about the baby coming.

i look forward to getting to know everyone better.

message 27: by Hayes (new)

Hayes (hayes13) Forgot to ask you how your wife is feeling... hope she hasn't got the morning queesies. Too early to know if it's a boy or a girl, I imagine. I didn't want to know. How 'bout you?
