I finished actor,William Daniels memoir"There I Go Again" a terrific book I learned a couple new things about him. He was a child performer with one of his younger sisters,Jackie,their mother,Irene was a typical'stage mother'.

He and his wife,actress, Bonnie Bartlett met at Northwestern,have been married for 65 yrs.

He still gets mail from fans about his role as "George Feeney' on ABC hit show 'Boy Meets World"

I recommend the book Sue

The book I'm about to read is"There I Go Again: How I Came to Be "Mr. Feeney,John Adams,Dr. Craig,KITT, and Many Others by actor, William Daniels.

He's one of my favorite TV actors,first saw him in movie"1776' '73 he played John Adams,most of the cast in movie version also did stage version. I loved him as "Dr Mark Craig',head heart surgeon on favorite  medical show'St Elsewhere" '82-'86.He co-starred as the high school principal, "Mr. Feeney" on ABC sitcom'Boy Meets World''93-'00.I wonder if the writers intended the name of the high school, to be named John Adams because of Daniel's movie role.,I  found it amusing nevertheless.

Hello! I'm new to this forum and wondered if anyone would like to read my book "Africa, my Africa" by Rina Flanagan. It is so new that you have to put in the "by Rina Flanagan" bit, for it to show up on Amazon. I was born in Africa, grew up there and lived in several places in Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Namibia. Had some encounters with elephants and the occasional deadly snake - some scary, others downright funny... or they were later!

I'm trying to get some reviews for a competition I entered (Storyteller UK), but would also like to know what people think of the book in general. Grateful for your comments!

Very best regards,

Rina. (I travelled all over the world for companies I worked for, lived on 4 continents, and an island, and the next book will contain those stories - plenty of funny incidents that happened long the way!)

Last night,I finished "My Bookstore",which featured 91 authors and their essays about their favorite  place to shop,browse and buy books.

Some of these authors I had never heard of before,I recognized 11 authors since I had read their books.I highly recommend this fascinating book. Sue

My current book is The Sisters of Versailles by Sally Christie.  It is about real people, the five de Mailly-Nesle sisters, contemporaries of  Louis lV.  The book is written from the perspective of the  sisters and I am really enjoying it.  It is light reading but  it is immersing and very well written.  There are 2 more books  planned to follow in the trilogy.

I could not get into the book about the History of Tea,I gave up after 60pgs.The writer was too detailed found it to be quite boring,oh well

The next one on my list is"My Bookstore" edited by Ronald Rice and Booksellers across the country.

91 authors have written essays about their favorite places to browse,read and shop.This should be interesting.
