THE RULE OF THE COFFEE SHOP By: gooduklady

Important Post

Since Bookrix has been revamped, we have lost some "Important Posts" - formerly known as "Stickies" here in the Coffee Shop.

For those new members who have recently arrived, we have only one rule that everyone must adhere to which is:

NO PROMOTING YOUR BOOKS.
NO LINKS TO YOUR BOOKS.
NO REQUESTING FEEDBACK ON YOUR BOOKS.

There are many other groups on Bookrix where the above criteria are welcomed. The Coffee Shop is a place where... Show more

Paper Planes should be able to change the group pic and insert a 'cuppa joe'. I can change the pic on my group.

I have a suitable pic for you if you want it. I'll slip it into the back of the book "Just Covers' on my profile (Looks like a cat's face). If you want it I'll put it up so you can capture it.

Thank you. I mentioned your one long ago post to one of my friends way back and your gentle notes. Peace is every thing. Without Peace it all is waste; Peace not just for ourselves but the world at large including our animals; dogs, cats, camels, elephants and the rest.

I'm really grateful for your nice reply Booby, and I won't argue with you about peace. We believe that Allah (God) has many names, one of those names is Assalam, which means The Source Of Peace.

It is not hard to find who is all love and who is angry from the write ups or from plain ignoring.

And I have a question too.
When someone says Not Applicable against Sex: what does it mean.

They said: "It was not in Alfie's best interest to continue to receive treatment or to travel abroad to receive care."

We can see that these hospitals / courts have no compassion, even for babies!
And when it's not about the question of pride, a hospital has nothing to lose when... Show more

It's so sad because the parents had been able to arrange for continued healthcare in a different country, but weren't allowed to take their son there. We dont just read dystopian books anymore, we're living it
