  1. Oooh I didn't know there was going to be a Nightingale novella! That's something to look forward to. I hope we get to find out more about Molly in that too!
  2. What's the weather like?

    The last few days (and today) have been so nice. Sunny and warm. I’ve just wanted to stay in the garden. I’m hoping it will stay dry and sunny even when it’s cooler, because at least I can just put a jumper on and still sit outside!
  3. Ooooh wouldn’t it be great if
  4. Is there anybody in particular you'd like to find out more about? I actually really want to know when
  5. I completely agree again. It was definitely not what I expected, but I liked it! I think it would be great idea...
  6. Do You Like to 'Like'?

    I think I had accidentally set it so only moderators could see it, so sorry about that! Based on the above responses I'm going to turn it off anyway as I wouldn't want anybody to be upset about getting (or not getting) 'likes' on their posts. Thanks for all your replies!
  7. I absolutely agree @Raven, I thought that's what it might be. What did you think of the short story in the Waterstones edition?
  8. Do You Like to 'Like'?

    Ah, I forgot to say, you'll also notice a number under your profile picture which, if you hover the mouse over it, says 'member's total reputation'. That is another feature of the 'like' function and basically the more 'likes' (or laughs, or thanks) you get on your post, the higher your reputation gets. Just like the 'number of posts' counter, really.
  9. I'd say your reading looks like it's going really well! Especially since there's been a few you didn't hugely enjoy. You're doing much better than me, anyway! I think you've been kind about Can't Hurt Me, it sounds terrible and a lot like it's promoting a mindset that's mentally and physically harmful. I don't think the author is super human, but I do suspect he has some psychological issues from his childhood that he needs to address. I hope your next book will be a good one!
  10. Do You Like to 'Like'?

    As many of you will have noticed, the 'like' button is currently back. It should show up as a heart at the bottom right of any post other than your own. You can simply click the heart to 'like' the post or, if you hover over the heart, there are also options to laugh or say thanks. I think it might be a nice way to show appreciation for a post even when you don't have anything you want to add to that thread. So, two questions: 1) Can everybody see the heart button? 2) What do you think of the ability to 'like' each others posts? Do you like it, or is there any reason you think it might not work / be used? (It's very easy to switch on and off so it's not a problem to change if you all don't particularly like it). Let me know what you think
  11. No, you shouldn’t have to. I’m using my phone at the moment and I can see it as a little heart next to ‘quote’ etc. I did set it up pretty quickly so I might need to check I gave everyone permission to see it!
  12. Greetings To You All

    Hi, welcome to the forum! I love nineteenth century fiction but I’ve barely read anything from Russia so it would be great to hear what your favourites are .
  13. ... Now I need to bring back the face palm emoticon too . I do think the “like” feature might be a good thing though. If it doesn’t get used it’s easy for me to disable it again
  14. I think it’s a great idea and you should now be able to ‘like’ posts
  15. I finished it yesterday so now I have to ask, what was the bugbear!? I will also admit that, although I loved it, I didn't love this one quite as much as the previous books.
