Hi rapa! I got your message about the Bookaholics group. Since I joined, I haven't been a very devoted member. I'm still reading, but I'm not particularly socially isolated and I mostly just do the Wall of Gratitude on TBD. It's too bad, that interest has decreased. If you need to retire from the group, to do other things or maybe be in an in-person book club, I totally understand. If I didn't have so many other responsibilities, I'd volunteer to keep it going, but I'm trying to spend less time online rather than more. Best wishes in whatever you decide. I was hoping for more people to drift back to TBD from Facebook, but it doesn't look like it is happening.
Hi rapa, My hubby has been on TBD for a long time, teebubbadee is his user name. I had to have hime help me get my page set up...reason it took me a while to get back to you. I retired in April 2014 from the hospital. Took an early retirement because I couldn"t stand the way staffing has decreased over the years and level of patient care declining. Same time I was retiring my hubby got bladder cancer so I was able to take care of him. He's doing well. I don't read too much anymore. Kids got me an I Phone for Christmas and I'm on facebook or playing games or with my 6 year old grandson
Rapa thanks for the coaching on this site. I'm just going to leave things as my real name for now. Back in the old days of chat forums everything seemed so anonymous and Screen-names were a way to stay private. Now, we have photos revealed among other personal revelations just seems futile to hide my name. I rejoined Facebook but kept my "friends" list very small. Need to find you over there.~mlo
