Thank you Tom

I thought this deserved it's own thread.

Thank you Tom (WT Sharp) for all the work and great job you did running the Book Club.



I hope you enjoy your retirement. If you don't mind my asking, what sort of pension did you get from MR?

Thank you; you're right that Tom deserves his own thread.

His management of the Book Club was the gold standard. He was invariably good-humored, even-handed, gracious, easy-going and funny. And he also showed up, month after month, adhering to a strict time table no matter what else might have been going on in his life. The gold standard, indeed.

Thanks for all the great years, Tom!

Amen to all these comments. Tom -- you did an amazing job with a difficult and demanding task, and you did it every month. I'm in awe, frankly. Thank you!

I fully agree, voluntarily spending time and effort for 6 years to manage a bookclub for anonymous random people on the internet, is something worthy of praise

Cheers!

My participation in book club has been negligible since I joined MR, but I have regularly visited the club discussion threads and I have a very high regard for Tom's good-natured, even-handed management. Thank you very much, Tom, for all the efforts!

Thanks Tom, and not just for the book club efforts. You have been invariably considered in all your dealings, and most importantly have a great sense of humour.

And thank you, Dazrin, for making my job so much easier with your record keeping contributions. You made things so much easier!

And thank you all for the kind words!
