Parents need to find books for children that have a positive message because children are our future. There is a book "Bailey's Good Deeds" by M. Lyman. It encourages children to get an early start in doing good deeds. Action books are good; but, we need more books with messages to build a better humanity and good citizenship. Without a strong foundation, a society becomes weak.

No, I only read history books by historians, not ghost writers for celebrities.

Sometimes I wonder whatever happened to Isabella, the person who started the "what book are you reading" thread. S/he hasn't posted on CD since March 2010.

LookingforMayberry hasn't been around in a long time either.

She's been here since Isabella, of course, but she used to post regularly and I always enjoyed her posts.

I knew someone was missing. I wonder what is up and I hope she is okay. I enjoy her posts too.

I was thinking what a pleasure it has been to read responses and participate myself in a thread I started entitled "Is some children's/young adult fiction so good it transcends its genre?". My point is that there has been no nastiness, no meanness, no put-downs, no name-calling - just an exchange of opinions and recommendations accompanied by civility and kindness in disagreement.

This is such a welcome relief from what I am used to in the Retirement Forum, where the majority of posters are indeed civil and respectful, but where there are enough people consumed with a generalized hostility to make for a certain amount of unpleasantness.

If the rest of the book sub-forum is as nice and civil as the few threads I have participated in here, then this a wonderful place and you folks are wonderful people!

I'm so glad that this has been such a positive experience for you. I've seen the nastiness that you referred to -- in the FOOD forum, of all places! -- but that's never the case here. We have a great group of people here who never judge each other. While I might not be interested in the book that you're reading, I'm happy that you're reading and I'm happy that you're enjoying the book. Many of us are of the mind that, if not for the other folks on this forum, we wouldn't be introduced to half the books that are presented to us with "I know it's not your usual style, but I know you and I think you might enjoy this one." Or just the title is listed on the forum and many of us look it up, just to see what the others are reading... and become interested in reading it too.

I hope that you'll stick around here!

People are mean in the TV forum too. It's definitely nice here in Bookworld.
