and it's THIS one!!!

I was just showing a friend (and new member, "adagio") around Passions this evening, and as I did, I realized just how much this site has to offer.

(I'm really loving the Margaret Atwood lectures/articles in the Learning Center. )

All of this and forums too!

Very cool, Ronnie Baby! I think I'm going to like it here.

*shaking my head*

I feel like I discovered a secret room...

Margaret Atwood was actually the first author I ever got hooked on, along with another fellow Canadian, Farley Mowatt.  You may enjoy this as well as a reference, as there are some great tips from her here from more lectures she has given.
http://www.owtoad.com/    This site is maintained by her assistants, and you may have noticed the copywrite on her books as o.w. toad ~ that is an anagram for Atwood.  

You are right there is something for everyone here at this site, and the best of it too!

I love Farley Mowatt!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I've shopped a bit during the past two years, and I've run into several sites that are better than PiP -- in one way or another.

None of them is better overall. For size, variety, open friendliness, support, consistent moderating, ease of use and any of a dozen other factors, this is the place....
