Brittney responded to some comments we made on her "The Other Boleyn Girl" review. I just noticed it, and I thought I would pass that info on to you in case you wanted to respond. She posted the response as a new comment, so I never received a notification about it: http://www.lunch.com/reviews/book/UserReview...337-24623-Amazing_.html

Sorry you didn't win a Lunch Award, Paul. I was cheering for you! You're a winner in my book!

It's especially important to have someone who's an expert of the sci-fi genre helping out in a sci-fi community. I haven't thought about having genre moderators for Cafe Libri, but it might be something I look for in the future. It would be nice to encourage more types of reading materials; I'm finding some genres overshadow the less popular ones!
