Thanks, everyone! Obviously I'm biased, but I think it's a very good read.

Please consider posting a review on Amazon or other appropriate sites when you finish the book.

@ windlady

I don't mean to sound cheap, but I am pretty poor at the moment (unemployment and all) and can't really afford a copy. I was wondering if you have any plans of getting Charlie's book in libraries anytime soon? I did a search of the Marmot and Prospector catalogs and it didn't pull up any copies in Colorado.

Thanks,

Well, there's one copy in the Montrose library! :D

How about $2.99 for the Kindle version (sale price through March 3)? You don't even have to own a Kindle to use it, since Amazon provides free software to read Kindle eBooks on your PC or Mac, or on lots of other devices such as iPhone, Blackberry, Android...

Winglady........I just finished reading Two Shadows and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading it. Full of great stories of adventure, and Charlie's sense of humor had me laughing to myself many times. He's overcome so much and definitely knows how to live life to its fullest. Wishing you two much good health and happiness in your future. I would definitely recommend this book to others. =D>

As requested, I've added my recommendation and a book review on Amazon.com.

Being the geek that I am, I created a Trailer for Two Shadows. Hope you enjoy it:
