MOTM June 2019: Gregs317

Post by bookowlie »

I am pleased to announce the June Member of the Month is…Gregs317! Our honoree has been a consistent member of OBC since 2013. He is an avid reader and prefers to read at night. Gregs317 has even read a few books by Bill Bryson, one of my favorite authors! He mainly hangs out in the reading discussion forum and provides interesting commentary on a variety of topics. If you see any of Gregs317’s posts in the “What Are You Reading Right Now?” thread, you can be sure the book he’s reading is worth a second look. Gregs317 is particularly helpful in recommending books to other members, based on their reading tastes. He also enjoys organizing read-alongs, where other members will read the same book along with him. Gregs317, stand up and take a bow!

Congrats! :mrgreen:
There are losses we don't move past, no matter how hard we try. Some wounds, once inflicted, bleed forever underneath the skin. All we can do is learn to live with them.
