[quote=""boswellbaxter""]Whoops, why did I say Washington State when you said you were from Oregon? Welcome anyway![/quote]

:D You know how those east coast folks are Steve, one state is like another.

Kidding aside, welcome. Margaret and Sarah are from the Portland metro area (hope I have that right) and Sonja Marie and I from the greater Puget sound area. I'm currently reading a relatively unknown novel on the Columbia River, more later.
At home with a good book and the cat...

Thanks, Misfit. Good to hear from up north! And that we're legion. I'll look for more on that Columbia River novel.

Wow, thanks all for the nice welcomes! Great to hear from the East Coast and the UK.

My TBR pile could already fill a house, so what's a few hundred more great books? Looking forward to taking part, too.
