Good morning! Thanks for the start LOB.
Elizabeth, if you happen to stop by, I'd love to see an amazon wishlist. Not just books, but perhaps some things to help in this difficult time. I was excited to hear mass is sending our power people down to help Ny /Nj get power back.

LOB, what a wonderful way to visualize the important things.....
Thanks for the story and for starting the thread today...

From my wish list....
Death Speaks (Death Series, Book 2)

Good morning Home Boo and Scary Sandy.... Nice to see someone else awake at this early hour. I thought I was the only one here!

It's always my pleasure to open the thread so your welcome!

I'm glad you liked "The Important Things In Life" shopper. It seemed liked the perfect time to use it after the challenging week we've had. It really is all about the rocks!

Just a suggestion. If you all are serious about restarting the Book Club can you think of a better book for the maiden voyage than the one by Leonard Little. I can't quite remember the name :) but is still showing up free. Remember.. No pressure. Just a suggestion. I believe both Smurphy and Leo said something about being willing be discussion leaders.

Hey Robbn... Thank you! What has you awake so late?

So nice to hear from Elizabeth tonight, wasn't it? My heart just breaks for her, but I believe she and her husband will make it through this horrible time.

Lyn says:
I don't know the meaning of 6 - 8 straight hours of sleep. Though usually I can go back to sleep fairly easily.

I was so surprised to see her name pop up. I wonder if she will open up a wish list or Elizabeth being Elizabeth will just say pay it forward with someone else. Just give me your prayers.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 2, 2012 1:44:36 AM PDT
My thought about the wish list is that the kind of things she is in need of now wouldn't be ordered from amazon, plus there is the delivery issue at least for now...Not that I wouldn't do anything that I could but .....

Thank you for taking the time to organize this into months....It will make it much easier not to forget anybody..
I was going to grab Leo's birthday but you already have it... I'll pick out another day... Soon...

Posted on Nov 2, 2012 1:48:48 AM PDT
I think that Leo's book for the discussion is a great idea.......

Everybody needs to get it today,,,(unless they already have it)... RISE OF THE DRAKYN (Sword of Souls)

You are welcome. It is much easier to view.
It was nice to see that all the months had someone to remember. Though Janine is the lone December person.

Hi everyone

My story Flight: a short story is free from Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th November. Although (as the label says) it is short (1400 words), remember that it's quality, not quantity that counts. If you enjoy this story, do take a peek at my novels - all available on Kindle as well as in paperback.

Darshan: a Journey A family saga set mainly in Oxford and India: A young Indian girl searches for her past - and for love.

'An involving story, beautifully told.' Oxford Times Literary section

Noontide Owls A Crossover Fantasy/parable - this review says it all:
`At one level a fantastical adventure story... at another about universal truths of the human condition; about general insights into the often fatal workings of both national and international politics.' (From 5-star review by Mr E)

The Moon's Complexion A multicultural romance/cliff-hanger set in Surrey, India and Sri Lanka.

`I challenge anyone to put this book down' Editor, London Student Newspaper

Thanks for looking. Your feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks LOB I forgot to mention what a wonderful start you gave us this morning. I have heard the story you posted before, but I can't think of a better time for you to remind us of what is really important in life.
Hugs and Prayers go out to all who are trying to put their lives back together after the storm and a special ((((Elisabeth SH)))) may the kindness you bestowed on others be return to you when you most need it.


In reply to an earlier post on Nov 2, 2012 3:26:14 AM PDT
Thank you Leo. I meant to tell you that I am looking forward to reading your book. I picked it up yesterday. My oldest son loves to read and Fantasy is his favorite genre so I suspect he will be pleased to have a new book to read too.

After she responded so quickly, curiosity got the better of me and I downloaded I. Black's short story. I read it and posted a review. I thought it was well written.

Flight: a short story
A young English woman nears the end of her sojourn in India, when an enigmatic stranger captivates and enchants her

@Oregon Dreamer, Check the birthday list....I don't think yours is right but you of course would know better than I.

Posted on Nov 2, 2012 4:23:13 AM PDT
I must be tired.....I posted the book from my wish list, deleted it from the list and forgot to buy it....LOL
