OOPS, sorry! After typing, retyping, and editing your form, for my previous post, several times, to remove "offending characters," I clicked enter without realizing there was a typo at the end. Thank YOU for your consideration!

Will you be anywhere near Peachtree City, GA, 4-18-11? My Reading Life is the Sisterchicks Book Club selection. We meet at Starbucks, Hwy 54, Publix Shopping Ctr. 7:30 pm. I would love for you to come, call in, or Skype! If you will come, we can change locations, and either keep it small, or open up to more people, your preference. Your wife is welcome! I am finding myself wishing Gene Norris were still alive, and I knew him, so I could enlist his help to persuade you! I also do an online book club on my blog at www.dancingonthejourney.blogspot.com. The link for My Reading Life is in the February archive on the left. This form did not like the symbols in your link! I am hoping to hear from you. Thank yo for your consideration!

I just discovered you! I decided to reread War and Peace after my first time around 1950. Your introduction (pocket book) so pleased me that I asked Google who you were !!! Now you are the next writer after Tolstoy. At 83 I keep going back to the "great" novels. I so like your warm and enthusiastic personality. Thanks !!

Pat, Just wanted to thank you for so many years of enjoyment reading your books. 'Beach Music' continues to be my favorite and I recommend it every chance I get.

I just read My Reading Life and was enthralled by the beauty of the language and the compelling nature of your stories as well as your transparency. Your title grabbed my attention, but the first chapter about your mother and her love of the library captured my heart. I, too, have loved books and libraries and the other worlds they have opened for me. I am thankful that I have been able to pass on that love to my girls, who are all readers.

I am sorry to say that I have not yet read your other books, but plan to do so now... along with all the other books that you have inspired me to read for the first time or to read again with new eyes.

Thank you for this wonderful gift of your life on paper. God bless you.

I have just finished reading My Reading Life and have laid out to read next War and Peace, which was a gift two Christmases ago. I'd be curious to know which translation is Mr. Conroy's favorite.

I have just sandwiched John Irving's Last Night at Twisted River between South of Broad and now A Reading Life. Pat, you have reached out in the pitch of my nights for 30 years, consoling and understanding the damaged youth and confused man I have been. While I have not responded to life's challenges with your grace, I am quite certain we shared the same playpen once upon a time, if not the same parents.

As with John Irving, I tread slowly over your pages to make them last a bit longer than is natural for me. Halfway through your latest I was forced to put it down for a night or two, just to savor.

Now a query for fellow readers: this was one of the first I read on a Kindle and I am feeling almost disloyal to Pat, given our shared love of the hard copy of things. Others?

Hi Pat, Just finished Lords of Discipline and got such a different picture of you and your life as a young student at the Citadel. Also got a glimpse into a world my son has inhabited and never discussed. Thank you. I think you are the best writer alive and will be rereading everything. Haven't read The Great Santini yet.
