be still my heart

Over at LibraryThing they’ve launched the new groups feature. Anybody can set up a group for people with a common bookish interest, and anybody can join. There’s a group discussion board, and group statistics, and all kinds of lovely geeky things to make my heart beat faster.

I just set up a new group called Romance, from Austen to Byatt to Crusie. All you need is a free LibraryThing account and you can hop on over there and join.

Can you see this as a challenge? As people are scrambling to set up groups and get members to join, the romance community could kick some butt. Some thriller-butt, some baseball-butt, some aviation-butt, even poetry and theology and numismatic butt.

  1. Very cool! I just joined LibraryThing this weekend, and cataloguing my books turned into a weekend project. (The statistics are my favorite feature. Why I should be happy only 3 other people have a particular book is a mystery. But there it is.)

  2. I would definitely read Lydia’s story, simply for the closure! I’m looking for to Pajama Girls and saw no problem with TTTT hardcover, it seemed to me that it went well with the book.

    thanks for writing such great stories Rosina.

  3. Hmmmmm…about Lydia…why settle for just a short story? Perhaps (hint, hint, hint) you could work it up into a complete book and call it “Leftover Lydia”!!!

    GROAN!!!

    Just a thought…I know I get scary when I have too many thoughts…buahahaha!!!

  4. Glad to hear that Book Six is progressing! I’ll mark my calender for the release of Pajama Girls, looking forward to it! Can’t wait to see the cover art work!

  5. Rosina, do you work more than 8 hours a day? You said you only take 2 hours/day for other things besides book 6, I was wondering if you give yourself a schedule, i.e. 8am-4pm or you just make it up as you go along.

    Keep up the good work!

  6. I’m glad there’s a definite date for PAJAMA GIRLS because I’m really looking forward to it! Yay! :-)

  7. For what it’s worth, I found the interaction between Lydia and John really helpful at the beginning of TTTT. It gave insight into John (and Patty Cake, to a lesser extent) for me – the way he viewed students, what he thought of the university life there, the kind of topics he dealt with, and showed me a picture of university life in action. For me, it was a real entrance into the university and town.
