Exit Wonderland: a road novel
Skye Pelter ends up in Bridgeport, a little town east of Yosemite, and, after singing Nat King Cole's "Nature Boy" at a karaoke bar, meets Sarge McCollum, a reclusive billionaire who lives in a mansion built into an abandoned silver mine. Skye's visit there is like a trip to Oz (Sarge having a fondness for jazz relics and exotic technologies), but what's even better is what he discovers afterward: his '86 Toyota pickup has been outfitted like a Bond car, and his bank account contains six figures. So, thinks Skye, what would a Nature Boy do? He might take that car into the Nevada desert and end up in Winnemucca, where he might meet a sexy refugee Mormon housewife and take her to Hawaii. And then he might go to Colorado, and New York, and Cape Cod, where he might meet twins, and a collage artist, and Holly Golightly's granddaughter, and a frozen vegetable heiress with a penchant for sheet rocking.

I dont know why you are picking on me Annie. I do not give negative votes at all - what is the point? in fact I always make a point of thanking anyone who does post a book that I like. Please leave me alone or I will have to report you for your bullying me. I dont want to read anymore snide comments from you.

Miss Annie's post wasn't addressed to you!

Personally I am very glad of Miss Annie's posts and all the hard work she puts into them. I've picked up many books from her daily threads on free books. Why people choose to vote on them negatively I really don't know. Even if the books aren't your 'thing' - free books give you a chance to try something new with no financial risk.

Jo says:
In defence of Red Miss Annie did say

'Well, i think we all know where the negative votes are coming from. Hallo red! Hope you enjoy the books x'

So I can understand why he would think she was having a go at him.

I just think the buttons should be taken away, they don't have any use other than causing arguments on this forum

All I did was thank red for saying she likes one of the books I posted, and her response was that none of my posts were 'her cup of tea'. So much so that she never even reads them. But...of course she does, she replied to me! I thought she must be having a laugh. And then someone else posted a rather cheeky post, and it wasn't but a minute or so later that all the posts in this thread had been voted down. I don't know who that was. Either way, I know red reads my posts, actually likes and downloads some of the books I post and the next thing I know she's threatening to report me. Wow! Seems a long way to go when you could just say thank you, or admit you do like some of my choices and be friends. Red, you said "in fact I always make a point of thanking anyone who does post a book that I like." I've got nothing against you, and I would like to like you. Let's be friends. Life is short and you can never have too many. Maybe you'll also like some of these free books.

* * Many thanks Manc girl, Ms. G, and Damaskcat. Damaskcat I hope you're doing well, I've been thinking of you. * *
