I Found Something

Barbara introduced me to Shelfari, an online place to list the books I've read, am reading, or would like to read. It's pretty cool. You can join others to talk about books ... all sorts of things. Like a lot of online forums, you can invite friends to join. You're all invited by the way. Well, the only "friend" I have there besides Barbara is a guy named Jim Palmer. Ever heard of him? I'm embarrassed to say that I had not. Then I got curious and began snooping around. I wondered why in the world he had added me as a friend since I didn't know who he was. It appears he's an author of a book I have heard of - Divine Nobodies. And I found his blog, which looks to be right up my alley. I think you'll like it too. Check it out as you have time.

Amber, you discovered Jim!!! He's the greatest. A very approachable guy. I feel like he's a friend cause we've emailed etc.

Glad you like Shelfari, I love it. I haven't spent much time on there lately but intend to.

I refuse to be outdone by some other author. Look for me to be your "friend" soon. I'm a very approachable guy too.

Barbara - Jim sounds like a cool guy. I may just have to get that book. :)

Brain - do I detect a wee bit of jealousy there? Not to worry dear, Beyond the Passion and Revelations to Go are on my self too.

Ya, and "Serenity For The Soul" is by your toilet. :)

Shelfari sounds interesting. I will sign up.
