The Nicest Email

I got the nicest email last night from a total stranger. I am currently addicted to and am busy putting my library and book reads together on there. I've posted all of my book reviews from last year and have been busy adding my books and so forth. I used to use LibraryThing, but they limit your free account to 200 books, and I'm up over 600 now on GoodReads, plus I was just given librarian status, which is cool.

But I digress.

So, last night I got a friend request and here is what the woman wrote:

Dear Kate I truly love your reviews. I used to be an avid reader and your reviews inspire my love of books. Mostly I would like to add you to my list so I can always read your reviews. It may be awhile before I get a chance to read and review a new book, but I promise to contribute when I can. I am a 37 year old mom of a 5 year old and almost 4 year old, with another baby due in April. (Surprise! :-) Happy but still a surprise.) So I am working on adding the pleasure of reading anything more than Sandra Bointon, Dr. Suess, a baby magazine or family fun magazine at this point. I appreciate your writing and the glimpse you provide back into the adult world of novels.

That is pretty stinking fantastic.
