A Virtual Feast

I am delighted to see, via Shelfari, that there are a ton of book lovers in the Nashville area. This newly-discovered social networking site can be as intoxicating as any great bookstore. It’s just a different way of browsing, with its own personal (if virtual) touch. Through the sheer process of clicking and adding book titles, I’ve gleaned that I’ve read even more books than I realized—and am wondering how I’ve found the time to do so given the grind that life has been for, well, forever.

Maybe it’s also a sobering reminder that I need to be writing more and reading less? But writers must read in order to write well. What comes first, the reading or the writing?

Well, spending too much energy on this conundrum could lead to both writer’s block and reader’s block. So I’ll let it go and see where the words—both the ones I compose and the ones I drink in from the generous creative cups of others—take me!

A fax machine is an equipment that converts electrical signals into transmission through telecommunication lines and is received and reconverted on the other end in black and white. Recently, in one of the online business forums someone mentioned they were now using a virtual online fax machine instead of the old office fax machine. More importantly you can save a lot of money as you will not have to invest in buying a fax machine and further spend on its maintenance and be constantly anxious about likely breakdowns. Overview: With a virtual PBX program you can get all your services such as phone, faxing, message forwarding, voice mail, even a virtual receptionist for one low monthly price.
