Re: My dad is dyslexic

Oh, I think I know something that might help.

My dad is dyslexic

I would love for him to read my book. He does enjoy listening to books on CD. I need affordable ideas that are not too hard for someone who is computer handicapped! Or if anyone has done this on their own in the past I'd love to hear how. Thanks!

Sighing, she turned and found a block of cheese made of Venusian so she picked up a sword to pierce into the looming thicket. "No!" said the block of cheese! "Don't go there!" But the cheese did not know how to talk let...

Re: The Introduction Thread

HI Craig, I didn't know Canadians said ya'll. I thought that was an Okie thing... Well, I'm not exactly your typical Canadian. (Roughly translated: I don't like hockey. Or beer. Or camping.) Well, then I'm not sure you would make a good Okie then except for the hockey thing... allthough I'm not cra...

Re: Funniest book you've read?

Okay, I found this one really funny and I even go back to it occaisionally when I need a feel good easy read. Summer of the Dragon by Elizabeth Peters. Also her Amelia Peabody Mysterys are light and fun too. Slap your knee funny? I don't know but I did laugh out loud a few times. And, Dean Koontz's ...

Re: The Introduction Thread

HI Craig, I didn't know Canadians said ya'll. I thought that was an Okie thing... I just finished my 2nd novel and am currently awaiting a response (fingers crossed). My first novel, which is way longer then it needs to be, is on the back burner but I would like to get back to it one day. I write mo...
