  1. Your Favourite Book when a Child?

    You are welcome. However, it comes with The Nutcracker now but if it was a children's picture book it might not necessarily have come with The Nutcracker.
  2. Your Favourite Book when a Child?

    Could it be The Mouse King by E T A Hoffman? usually comes with The Nutcracker. Fabulous stories both. There were so many that I couldn't narrow it down to just one - I loved the Brer Rabbit stories too, The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, Naughty Amelia Jane, The Wishing Chair, The Silver Brumby Series ........... and on
  3. 100 Books Bucket List

    I agree wholeheartedly. I look at these lists with interest because I'm always interested in what other people are reading and what they find interesting and then I carry on reading what I enjoy and want to read.
  4. How many books have you read this year?

    Always I heard as a suggestion that you use the time that you would normally be commuting to read. Easier said than done I think but just a suggestion.
  5. Bel-Ami

    From Amazon because they can do it better than me : Young, attractive and very ambitious, George Duroy, known to his admirers as Bel-Ami, is offered a job as a journalist on La Vie francaise and soon makes a great success of his new career. But he also comes face to face with the realities of the corrupt society in which he lives - the sleazy colleagues, the manipulative mistresses and wily financiers - and swiftly learns to become an arch-seducer, blackmailer and social climber in a world where love is only a means to an end. Written when Maupassant was at the height of his powers, Bel-Ami is a novel of great frankness and cynicism, but it is also infused with the sheer joy of life - depicting the scenes and characters of Paris in the belle epoque with wit, sensitivity and humanity. I didn't like this as much as his other work but it was well written, well plotted and had believable characters.

  12. Chrissy's Reading 2021 and Beyond

    I just finished two books by Katherine Arden and keenly await this year's third to make the trio. All three were aimed at 10 - 12 year olds. I read them anyway and they are great. Good writing is good writing and I don't see why the children/YA should have all the fun.

    Me too and if I don't get it I start twitching.
  14. Introverts & Extraverts

    I'm glad that you are both alright
  15. Read-a-thons 2021

    Well, I read more than I anticipated over the w/e. I like - need! - to read 50 pages a day and got up to that over the weekend. If I don't read 50 pages a day I start twitching! Does anybody else do that or is it just me?
