Oh, mal chance! I don't read French. What a shame, because that sounds like something I would just love. I'm not well-versed or anything, but I love Greek mythology. I just wrote a paper on the Odyssey, but I write philosophy, non-fiction only. :-)

Oh ok ... yeah I guess you wouldn't be able to post that .. right

Do you sell your books on Amazon?

I am so glad you feel at home here Catherine. That's the reason I made this group.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
I am glad each of you are here.

Hi Marty! You know I do the same thing .. I have insomnia and I'll sleep for a few hours and wake up by 4AM and then I try to get more sleep.

Comment by Steph S. on May 12, 2012 at 9:46am

Catherine welcome to the group! I am drinking coffee right now.

Comment by Steph S. on May 12, 2012 at 9:45am

Hi David Thanks for the book info. I actually have a discussion on that book ... somewhere on the site. I appreciate the link! I'd love to hear what you think about it.

I also have many posts in the INTJ group

Comment by Jedi Wanderer on May 12, 2012 at 9:42am

I'm not too great with sleep either. Ah, Catherine, a fellow writer? What genre?

Comment by Marty on May 12, 2012 at 8:44am

Hi Catherine, I wonder if insomnia is common among Atheists? I sleep on and off for only 2 or 3 hours each night and am usually out of bed by 3:30 – 4:00. I like it though, as I like to walk or hike before sunrise. Otherwise doing great.

Comment by David Loewen on May 12, 2012 at 1:20am

I haven't seen it mentioned here at all, but if anyone is interested, there is a FABULOUS book called The Introvert Advantage. Reading the book, I swear that I felt it had been written specifically for me! You should check it out if you have the chance. (No, I don't get paid for this. ;-) )
