message 1: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Just found GR a couple of days ago and have been having so much fun adding books to my shelves. I really don't live in the middle of nowhere--it's just that most people think it is. I have 2 sons, 1 daughter and have had the same model spouse for 26 years. I've always been a reader but since I joined a book club a few months ago, I have become something of an addict. Well, I thought I was until I started reading all of your postings!

Becky (beckyofthe19and9) Welcome Lisa! I'm very much addicted to GR, and this group keeps me more than entertained... In fact, I should be reading right now, but here I am! :)
Enjoy!


message 3: by Lisa (new)

Lisa I've spent nearly an hour on the site just now and should be reading, too! :) I'm off to do that now--"People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks. She's going to be in town in a couple of weeks--I'm so stoked.

Petra-X (mona-lisa-with-eggs) Hi there Lisa, this is a great fun group to belong to. Lots of nice people and good books to discuss.

Hayes (hayes13) Hi Lisa!! Welcome to the group... you'll find lots of fun things to read here!! The "mountain" on the floor next to my bed keeps growing - no room on the night table, so they had to go somewhere!!

Welcome to the group - I saw Geraldine in DC at the National Book Festival - it was great listening to her speak. She is very similar to what you would expect.

I have that same mountain! I shoot for a book a week, but I'm not sure that's going to keep up with the rate I pick up books.

Lisa | 69 comments Welcome Lisa - from yet another Lisa! I'd be interested in what you think of People of Book. I read March a few months ago.

I had a hard time with "March" although I thought it was well written and I know it's based on the facts of Bronson Alcott's life. But "Little Women" is one of my favorite books ever and I had an idealized image of the father which didn't match the man in "March." I'm over half way through "People" and really like it!

message 15: by Lisa (new)
