here is a funny reply to my shelfari 'request' by john b.:
No, I do not like the same books as you.
so i was very honest in designing my 'shelf' on shelfari. when i just went to check and see which strangers on my email list responded to the invites, i was informed that shelfari "is reading a short novel but will be back soon!"
was it all for nought?! goddamn, i hope so.
in other news, fried green tomatoes did it to us in our bellies.
