  1. If you visit again, please change your email address - yours is not working, and I'm getting all the bounced mail. Thank you

  2. Unpopular opinion!

    The first time I read Wuthering Heights I would have agreed with you totally! I couldn't even get past the first few chapters I think. Then a few years later I tried it again and loved it! How strange! I wonder what I would think if I read it now?
  3. The Well Educated Mind

    Thanks for the comment ladymacbeth! The great thing about the book is that it gives you only a few things to think about, I think the main aim is to discover things for yourself. And I agree about the science thing! The trouble I have is I want to read and learn about so many different things that there is not the time in the day!
  4. Book Journal

    My Moleskin arrived and it is lovely! I am definitely a happy bunny:)
  5. The Well Educated Mind

    Of course! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Well-Educated-Mind-Guide-Classical-Education/dp/0393050947/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1287352349&sr=8-1 This book here:) It talks you through reading some classics, gives you some background notes and tips for getting the best out of the books you read. If that makes sense!
  6. Book Journal

    Will do!
  7. The Well Educated Mind

    Has anyone worked through this book? I thought it would be a great way to read some of the classics I still have to read!
  8. Greatest love story ever written?

    Snap! What a great question!
  9. John Irving

    You naughty person, I just got myself the Moleskin one! I will blame you when Mr Nook raises his eyebrows at me
  11. Your Book Activity Today ~ Thread 13

    I finished Looking for Alaska by John Green which was a great read. I went shopping and returned with- The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England by Ian Mortimer Room by Emma Donoghue The Small Hand by Susan Hill. I have to admit with this one I was seduced by the cover.
  12. Library Nook- Olympic Challenge

    Ummmm...I did terribly at this. Blush.
  13. The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins

    I have just finished the second book and keep going to click on one click on Amazon for the next one! As a result I have read nothing but the first post on this thread to keep clear of spoilers I hope to join fully soon!
  14. Book Related Careers

    Sounds great! I am in a wonderful school where I am now in charge of the library woohoo! I am also literacy coordinator so books are strangely becoming more and more part of my life! I love sharing books with the children if I could do just that all day I would be very happy.
  15. Book Journal

    Ooh all these lovely ideas! I still find it hard to record books purchased and books read. No organisation me!
