Wow, your review of Dear Everybody was spectacular. Maybe I will add the text to my book "Wish List."

Josh Maday said...

Thanks, Ortho. Yeah, I probably don't even have to say that I highly recommend Dear Everybody. It really is an amazing book. And I can say that neither the review nor any raving I've done about the novel are hyperbole. I'd love to hear/read your thoughts if you decide to read it.

2 a month? Dude.

I took last month off, so . . .

Nice review of In the Land of the Free. Just for that, I'm going to send you a DVD copy of Bait Shop.

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
