That was quick for Minnesota pen..I tucked mine away.: ) Keeping busy with "Dragonfly in Amber" and the end of "Dreamfever"..I was just bumped off.so I hope this posts I'm sure you have a few books to keep you busy as well...


 

My neverending TBR pile is always there. I started reading Broken Kingdoms for the Science Fiction/Fantasy board. Broken Kingdoms is the second book, but has a very unique storyline.

Of course I am reading the new Stephen King book. I am well into the second story. So far I am seeing the very dark King stories.

Big Brown

  

 

 

Look, we can also read a book about "THE UNTOLD STORY OF UPS".

 

It's probably about the Big Brown Trucks and all the Barnes and Nobles First Look members attacking the drivers for their First Look books!

Love the pic & the handsome guy delivering isn't bad either!!!!  He has such a cool smile.

 

My guy was in preparing for the sprints in the olympics I think because he was so quick I ran to the door & he sprang from the porch in a split second; all I saw was a blurr r r.....

Community Room question:

 

Here's a good one to ask the group.  

  For those who are very savvy with the computer & this discussion board; do you prefer to read the message threads as; sort message as new, current message first, older messages first, as the threaded messages in a group?

 

I was reading them with the current most recent message at the end of the posted messages; and now I tried a few other methods after realizing there  are other options.  Just wanted to poll the group to see which you find easier to view?

I open the thread and read the topic that has the least amount of posts first and then with the one that I haven't read for a while, I'll read the most current posts and then when I get time, I go back and catch up on the older posts.

 

Hope that answers your question!

Re: Community Room

Good question. I prefer to read the board in the threaded format and have the settings set to show the newest first. That is easier for me because I check the board multiple times a day and hated to wade through all the posts before getting to something new. I also float discussion threads to the top so I can see if there are any new posts to read (new = darker print).  :smileywink:

Sorry Susan, I had you confused with ponie who wrote about the big brown truck way back on the thread of Bees and Mist. We must give ponie credit since she is the author. Don't know if you remember this post or not but here it is:

Here we go...

 

Oh Where Oh Where is the little brown truck?

Oh Where Oh Where can it be?

Got my PM today

Confirmation has come

Now I'm waiting for my A-R-C

Re: Community Room

No book yet for me either! Anxious to get it, hope it gets here soon. I have a good feeling about tomorrow...but I had a good feeling about Friday and Saturday too and no book! Haha, I'm sure it will get here soon.
