Thiis evening, I read the first chapter to "My Reading Life." The first book I am reading by Pat Conroy, and I am in admiration and in love with the person Mr. Conroy is, and the rich life he and his mother lived in the company of books. I judge books by their cover, I just picked up "My Reading Life" by Pat Conroy off the shelf on a whim. I am very grateful I did. LOVE

Mr. Conroy: I just finished "The Water is Wide": the only title of yours I had not yet read. It was simply superb; so powerful in fact that it moved me to visit "Yamacraw" recently. Do you have any information regarding how the lives of any of your beloved students have turned out? I do think about those students as I too was an eighth grader in 1969, although in an institution that, in so many ways, could not have been further from your simple white schoolhouse on the Sound. Thank you very much for your continuing outstanding contribution to our literary lives.

I attended Gonzaga High School, was friend of Chris Warner, was present at the assembly when you received your basketball letter and were decked twice by your father. Would love to talk to you!

I am in Charleston... and I love it! It has been on my "bucket list" to visit since I read South of Broad. I keep looking for Leo Bloom and Molly Huger in everyone I see on the street. Thank you for allowing me to explore this city through your marvoulous books... it is awesome to see the sights in person. I have read and reread all of your books several times... thank you for your amazing novels.

It's been a few years since reading South of Broad, yet it's still with me, one of my favorite reads. Love Charleston and the descriptions of Charleston in South of Broad are so visual! Wonderful characters and story!

I'm from Charleston, SC, and now live in Iowa. When I read Beach Music in 1995, I realized I'd found someone who articulated the way I felt about home. I miss the south every day and am grateful that I have Pat's novels to make me feel more connected to the most beautiful place in the world.

I just finished Beach Music. Great book! "Konrak" got my interest in your work & about 15 years later I stumbled onto The Prince of Tides. Now My Reading Life is on deck. Thanks for the enrichment. I was really stunned when I read your birthday is October 26, 1945 since mine is October 27, 1945... what a wild coincidence!

Reading a Pat Conroy novel is music for the eyes and for the soul. The first paragraph in the Prologue to South of Broad is so beautiful it "makes your eyes ache with pleasure" just reading it. My favorite book of all times is still Prince of Tides and Pat Conroy will remain my favorite author of all times.

I can't stop thinking, "What would Tom Wingo type in the 'Comment' section of his favorite author's virtual guestbook? His comment would be matchless, of course. But you also know he'd use every. single. character.
