Hi Ed!

I just wanted to stop by and thank you for all your great contributions in the discussion forums in Cafe Libri! If you are looking for a new list to create for the community, you might want to convert your answer from Sheri's question about favorite reads of 2010 to a list of the same title! We've been needing some new/engaging lists, and I bet your response would make a perfect one! Let me know if you need any help making one. :)
November 22, 2010
Adrianna, thank you for thanking me. You're a dame, a real darling, and I'm happy to contribute in any way I can. Not too sure about that list thingee, though, b/c, like I said, I usually don't read what's currently in the stores (with some exceptions) -- I tend to flit and float around a lot with what I'm reading. Plus, I get tons of freebies from Amazon.com authors who want me to read & review their books, so I'm always so backlogged. I'll put my mind to a list this week, though, and see what I can come up with.
November 22, 2010
Hi again, Ed!

Thanks for the kind remarks. We're doing a lot of thanking here, which is fun considering it's almost Thanksgiving. ;)

As for the list, I was thinking you could just list the 3 fiction and the 3 nonfiction choices you made in Sheri's discussion of Your Favorite Books of 2010. I was thinking you could list the ones you mentioned there as well as your descriptions of them. If you wanted to include more, that's fine too. There's no rush on writing anything for Cafe Libri. If you do get something together by mid-December, I will be sure to feature it in the monthly December newsletter!

Take care and shoot me a message once you create something! I'm going to add you as a friend. Hope you don't mind. :)
November 22, 2010
Well, of course, we can be friends. What's that entail, exactly? Do I get half your private wealth? I still have two kidneys, so if you needed one, I guess I could spare it ... but don't let me find you selling it on Craig's List or this friendship thing is over!
November 22, 2010
LOL!! Too funny! I can tell this is going to be a start of a beautiful friendship. ;) I also followed your reviews too!

Hey Ed, your Taylor Swift review of Fearless was featured on the Lunch Facebook Page
November 14, 2010
I am here to welcome you to the Movie Hype Community; it's an awesome place and I am sure you will enjoy it (and the other members) very much.
November 23, 2009
Hey Ed, thanks for sharing all these great reviews!  When you get the chance, it'd be great if you could upload a photo because we'd love to put a face to the reviews!  Looking forward to reading more from you :)
November 23, 2009
Yeah, gotta find a quality snap of myself 'round here somewheres ... and thanks for your kind words, Devora.
November 24, 2009
Awesome! Happy Monday, Ed! :)

Back at ya ... only now it's Tuesday morning ... dogs woke me up to go out and do their 'business' ...
November 24, 2009
Happy Tuesday then! Yeah, dogs'll do that... :P By the way, thanks for uploading your photo. It's so much better than the mystery head that would otherwise appear! :)
November 24, 2009
Oh, I don't know ... I think the 'mystery head' is far more mysterious ... be good ...
November 24, 2009
But then no one would be able to tell you apart from the other mystery heads, and you'd look less like a mystery and more like... another one of them :P
