Book Worm
I recently explained how I had rediscovered the love of the library. Not long after that, I was introduced to GoodReads. I love looking at the lists of what everyone is reading. And so, I was wondering, are you on GoodReads? If you are, would you mind if I added you as a friend? Or would you be willing to add me? My email is mejojac at aol dot com. I have found some really great books through the people that I'm already friends with. And I'm looking for more books to read... if you're not on Goodreads, do you have any book suggestions? I'm plowing through books at a rather fast pace right now and would love to hear what you've read and enjoyed!

Sidenote: (idea of the sidenote stolen from Yvonne) This weekend I had the opportunity to meet up with a fellow blogger! Flip Flop Mama came to town and I met her for a fast shopping trip. Hubby took the kids to the library while I visited and shopped for a little while with this fantastic gal! She was so easy to talk to and I was sad we didn't have more time together. I'm headed towards her hometown in September and we're hoping to meet up again! And remember, if you're ever coming to Southern California, let me know and we'll see if we can meet for lunch somewhere!

I keep hearing about this Good Reads, but I've never done anything about it.
I LOVE to read, but I never know what's out there. Probably a good reason to sign up, eh?

Most of the books I read are self-help books--always looking to improve myself and that takes all my spare time ; ) (Except for the vampire books--which have not "helped" me, have they ; )

I'm glad that you were able to meet a fellow blogger--and even go shopping. If I ever get to So. California, I'll let you know.

Glad you managed to meet a REAL person.
Best wishes

I'm on there! But not often enough to remember if you're on my friends list or not. Hmm...I should go log in...

I wish people happened to pass through my area - so glad you got to meet a bloggy friend!

Well, we are now friends according to goodreads. Isn't it nice to have that confirmed by a web site? Yes, FRIENDS. It's official, world!

And as far as ever meeting you...we nearly did, once, remember? You came through Las Vegas, but I MOVED just a few days before you got there.

(I am cursed when it comes to timing and meeting fellow bloggers.)
